Google to Sunset Inbox Service In March 2019

Many of these features have now been ported over to the main Gmail service. "Over the past 4 years you've helped us make email better. We’ve brought popular Inbox features to @Gmail helping 1B+ people get more done. Thank you," said the company via Twitter. "We’ll be focusing on Gmail & saying bye to Inbox at the end of March 2019." The company has posted a guide on its support site in order to help people transition from Inbox to Gmail.
