Inbox by Gmail will shut down by the end of March 2019

I'll take a look at Google's transition guide.

Google launched the Inbox in 2014 as a standalone app to exist alongside the Gmail.

Inbox was a testing ground of sorts for new Gmail features. It was built around mobile devices and perhaps for the first time, it eschewed the "everything but the kitchen sink" mentality of most email apps at the time. Inbox won't be shuttered immediately, with a transitional period until March 2019. In the new Gmail, you'll find workflows that are similar to your favourite ones in Inbox.

Steve Yzerman expected to join Red Wings next season
He's widely regarded as a strong hockey mind and joined Tampa Bay in 2010 when he was hired from the Montreal Canadiens. The Lightning lost to the Washington Capitals , the eventual Stanley Cup champions, in the Eastern Conference final.

But now Google is calling time on the app, likely because it hasn't really kept the app updated over the years and a lot of the features Inbox introduced have made their way over to Gmail. The change comes into effect soon after the search giant rolled out a design overhaul for Gmail from June this year.

Google revealed that it will terminate Google Inbox in March 2019.

Background: About four years ago, to the day, the Gmail team announced Inbox.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert speaks during a briefing at the State Department in Washington , August 9, 2017. The Trump administration gave official notice to the PLO that it would be closing their office in Washington , D.C.

Google said that it is making the change so it can focus exclusively on Gmail.

Bad news is that some features are not available on Gmail and that Inbox users may have to use suggested alternatives, e.g. labels or filters, or stop using certain features as they are not available. Addressing Inbox users in the blog post, Izatt wrote, "All your conversations are already waiting for you in Gmail". After that, you're free to delete the Gmail Offline Chrome app and then continue forward using only Gmail for web. Back in 2012, Google announced it was killing off Google Reader in early 2013 as part of its "Spring Cleaning" and there were all kinds of petitions being signed and so forth, but that didn't keep Google Reader from being killed off.
