For many Google users, April 2 will be a bad day because the search giant plans to not only close Google+ but also close the recently discovered Inbox by Gmail. The company has begun sending notifications to Inbox users informing them that the service will be closed within 15 days. At the same time, Google is trying to direct users to the official Gmail app.
“This app will be going away in 15 days. You can find your favorite inbox features in the Gmail app. Your messages are already waiting for you.“
While conversions can be painful for some users, Google has actually tried to migrate many Inbox by Gmail features to Gmail in the past few months. For example, both smart reply and E-mail Snoozing can be used in Gmail. It’s important to remember that April 2 will also mark Google+ down, so you should download the data as soon as possible. On the other hand, Google will continue Google+ to provide services to businesses.
