Saying that Inbox “has been a great place to experiment with new ideas”, Google introduced the approaching closure of the service in September 2018. At the time it promised that numerous Inbox options would make their manner over to the primary Gmail, and now it seems like that course of has virtually been accomplished.
Both apps at all times shared the identical e mail archive, so switching forwards and backwards was by no means too troublesome. A serious redesign of Gmail on the web was rolled out final yr, and the identical look has been showing within the cell apps over the previous few days.
