Last year, when Google announced the end of the Inbox by Gmail experiment, we were given the approximate date of March 2019. It is now March 2019, and this means the end for Inbox is near.
So near, in fact, that it’s less than two weeks away.
If you’ve opened the Inbox app recently, you’ll have noticed a new splash screen. This screen lets you know about Inbox’s pending demise. Google promises users that they can “find their favourite Inbox features in the Gmail app”, but that’s not exactly true.
Gmail doesn’t do bundles, doesn’t do inline tasks or pinning with notes. It’d be great if it did, but it does not.
Some of the features are there, including snoozing and follow-up nudges, but we’d kind of prefer the rest of Inbox’s handy features came across.
After April 2nd, we just have to wait and see what we end up with.
