Goodbye Inbox, we barely knew you

For the past four years Google’s Inbox has been the experimental playground for features that eventually ended up in Gmail, so it’s not really a huge surprise that Google is going to kill the beloved product and move all the experimentation and innovation behind a toggle switch in Gmail.

Google has released a transition guide, however there is no official date for the wake.

Inbox and Gmail

The death of Inbox will by the end of March 2019, so you’ve got some time to sit there and let it autocompose a tear jerking letter in which it hopes you find everything you’re looking for and that it hopes a very special mailbox app can walk alongside you after it’s gone.

    Crap. I hate how Google discontinues useful products like Inbox or Reader and devotes precious resources to stupid duplicate services on many fields.

    I used the Inbox as my only client. I’m actually suprised the adoption rate was small. Gmail was getting a little bit too bloated. I actually forgot how the Gmail interface looks like :D
