Google did no longer stammer why it used to be shutting down Inbox, which used to be launched in 2014 and pitched as a more nimble and experimental email app than the older Gmail app. The news was on Google's blog The Keyword, with Google justifying the closure by committing to "a more focused approach that will help us bring the best email experience to everyone". Google announced in a blog post that " we're planning to focus exclusively on Gmail and say goodbye to Inbox by Gmail at the end of March 2019". However, several of its features have been introduced to Gmail.

As expected, Google wants everyone to make the switch to the Gmail app, which by the way was recently overhauled with some new and exciting features.

Features such as Smart Replies and smart bundling have made their way to Gmail too.

Mass evacuations ordered as Hurricane Florence heads toward Carolinas
An estimated 250,000 more people from the northern Outer Banks were due to be sent to higher ground starting Tuesday at midday. Meanwhile, UNC, North Carolina State and Wake Forest all issued statements saying they were monitoring the storm, with N.C.

Inbox has pioneered numerous features that are now part of the new Gmail.

What do you think about Google killing off Inbox in favour of Gmail?

And the Inbox service will be phased out in the next six months with the official date for its closure announced as the end of March 2019. One Inbox feature that I use extensively - grouped emails - isn't yet in Gmail and there is no word as to when, or if, it will be coming to Gmail. Google confirmed that those features will come to Gmail soon, but didn't confirm the timeline for it.

Henry Cavill Out as Superman in Future DC Movies
Warner Bros . has been rethinking its superhero film strategy after " Justice League ". That would likely age Cavill out of the role, as Supergirl centers on a teen heroine.

Users of Inbox have until March to begin switching back to Gmail instead - Google has provided a handy transition guide to aid this process.

The incoming discontinuation of Inbox shouldn't be a huge surprise to many since it never achieved mainstream success because it wasn't being used by a lot of people. It's also unclear if users who have already installed it before its removal from the Web Store will be able to use it.
