  • Inbox by Gmail

In a matter of months-six months precisely according to Google, its Inbox email app will be shut down.

"This native capability is easier to use and performs better than the Gmail Offline Chrome app, so we're removing it from the Chrome Web Store after December 3rd, 2018", the company wrote in a blog post.

Back in 2014, Google said that email needed to change and adapt to the way we communicate now.

The Gmail Offline Chrome app was launched in 2011. In that announcement, the internet giant also said the Gmail Offline Chrome app would stop working at some point and recommended that users remove it and install the new offline functionality for the Gmail app instead. Gmail now has the same Smart Reply feature that is able to provide contextual suggestions based on the email received. Updates were, however, not common as Google focused more attention on the Gmail service to detriment of the Inbox email app.

India's top court decriminalizes gay sex
So proud today! Decriminalising homosexuality and abolishing #Section377 is a huge thumbs up for humanity and equal rights! The court said sex with animals, which also forms a part of Section 377 , would remain a criminal offense.

Search engine giant Google has made a decision to shut down its "Inbox by Gmail" app at the end of March 2019.

Google says that it "learned a lot about how to make email better" from Inbox, and now with the "popular Inbox experiences" ported over to Gmail, the company wants to "focus exclusively on Gmail". For Android, the Gmail app comes preinstalled for new devices as a part of Google Apps.

Google has already added a new webpage detailing information on how to easily transition from using Inbox to Gmail. It used the same account and showed the same data but in a special interface that brought many new ideas on how email could work. Many push out features they've been developing in individual apps then, if they take off, the winning features are integrated into key apps and software in the company's portfolio; just look at how Cortana started out mostly as a standalone virtual assistant and is now native to a lot of Microsoft's software.
