The good die young: Rest in Peace, Inbox by Gmail

We've had it a long time coming, and today is the day we finally have to bid farewell (the shutdown is rolling and starting to affect some users of both the site and the app): Inbox by Gmail reaches EOL. After announcing the death in September 2018, Google promised to bring over all the features we love about Inbox to Gmail. While that's true for snoozing, follow-ups (nudges), and Smart Replies, it's not the case for the differentiator between the two services: bundles. Let's take a look at what made Inbox so universally beloved, and stroll down memory lane to remember its way too short life.

InboxIt is a new app that replaces the departed 'Save to Inbox' feature

Inbox by Gmail is going the way of the dodo, and there's nothing we can do about it. I'm still incredibly bitter about this, but it's time to suck it up and work out how to make Gmail function in exactly the same way (or as close as possible). "Save to Inbox" was one of many handy features, but it's already been removed from the Android app and the Chrome extension has also vanished. Thankfully, InboxIt is here to reinstate it, on mobile at least.

Google removes 'Save to Inbox' feature from Android app, but it's still available on the web [Updated]

Even though Inbox by Gmail has always been a testing ground for Google's main email client, many users now prefer it — myself included. It was already dismaying to see the removal of certain snooze options (place and someday) in June, but now it looks like the 'Save to Inbox' sharing option on Android has been axed as well.

Inbox v1.76 may be bringing back the 'Someday' snooze option [APK Teardown]

Were you personally wounded when Google declared that Inbox would no longer include 'Someday' among its list of Snooze options? It's likely you weren't alone. The latest update to Inbox doesn't appear to bring back the recently removed feature, but a couple lines from a teardown suggest it might be coming back.

Inbox v1.59 reveals Highlights will get a training mode to manually improve results [APK Teardown]

A few weeks ago, Google began rolling out a new Highlights feature for Inbox that promises to bring your most important email to the top of the list. Many people still don't have it, so this may only be available to a small group for initial testing, or perhaps the rollout is just progressing very slowly. A teardown of the latest update to Inbox includes signs that there is a new training tool that will be useful for making Highlights even better.

Inbox email notifications are currently broken for some users

If there's one feature of an email client that everyone depends on, it's notifications. I mean, if you're receiving emails, it's kind of important to be informed about them, right? Sadly for many Google Inbox users at present, this isn't happening. Notifications for the Android app appear to be broken, and it's understandably making people mad.

[Update: Reply reminders too] Google Inbox now reminds you to follow up on important emails

In a recent teardown, we found that Google was working on follow-up reminders for the Inbox Android app. When enabled, the app would guess which emails need to be followed up, and move them to the top of the inbox. Now the feature appears to be going live for users.

Google Inbox now has an 'All inboxes' view

Google's Inbox app is a pretty great email client, but it has always lacked something that many mobile and desktop email applications have - a merged inbox view. You always had to check each account separately, which can take at least two taps to switch between. Thankfully, Google has finally added an 'All inboxes' view to the app.

Inbox v1.51 gets ready to sort high priority emails to the top and add reminders about unfinished email chains [APK Teardown]

Yesterday's teardown of Gmail brought news that the app would soon include some of the useful sorting methods over from the web client, giving users a way to see messages that might be the most important to them. Not to be left out of the fun, the latest update to Inbox reveals it has a couple new tricks of its own. Of course, we're talking about Inbox, so these upcoming features are driven by artificial intelligence and mountains of data about the types of messages that matter most to users.
