Inbox by Gmail going away: Plus Google’s other app closing concurrently

The folks at Google responsible for Inbox by Gmail are likely just as bummed about their work’s fate as those that made Google Plus.

That’s the social network Google made, and the Gmail suite of services – a new interface for the email service – that’s proved itself less-than-necessary.

Google started notifying users via Gmail and Inbox (inside of which there is Gmail) that Inbox is going away on April 2nd.

According to the notification from Inbox, “this app will be going away in 15 days” and users can find their “favorite Inbox features in the Gmail app.” Most of the features that seemed above-and-beyond and extra when the Inbox app first launched are now in Gmail proper.

We’ll likely now need to download whatever Google’s got in store for Beta releases of Gmail to get advanced features.

And the bundling offered with Inbox isn’t in the mix, for now.
