'Inbox by Gmail' has finally ended its services, four years after it was introduced. Inbox by Gmail was a priority-focused, standalone email service by Google that was started in 2015. Being around for quite some time, Inbox by Gmail turned out to be another Google service that was unable to show results.
Google over the years has re-introduced all its features to Gmail by which all its loyal users don't have to miss out on anything long, once gone, except for the branding.
'Inbox by Gmail' was an important phase for the company that helped it shape up Google’s email service. Many features like the Smart reply, Follow-ups, Hover actions and Snooze were originally introduced with Inbox by Gmail, that with the run helped Google in getting feedback on how users’ interacted with these features and bought changes to the main Gmail platform accordingly.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai in 2014 said back then that there was a clear distinction between Inbox and Gmail as Inbox by Gmail was a completely different type of service that focused on things that really matter.
