Reports reaching digitaltimesng.com indicate that Google+ is not the only Mountain View property that is getting the axe on April 2nd. Apparently, the Inbox app is also bidding its users farewell on the same day.
Google first revealed that it was going to discontinue its smarter take on email late last year, but it didn't say when specifically. Now, Google has started notifying users that Inbox will be going away in 15 days (from March 18th) through a screen that pops up when they fire up the app, according to a report at Engadget.
The notification includes a link to open the Gmail app as an attempt to ensure that current users continue to use Google products.
Gmail for mobile already has some of Inbox's most useful features, such as Smart Reply, Smart Compose and Follow-ups -- it also recently went through an all-white redesign that made it look and feel more like Inbox.
Unfortunately, Gmail users will have to give up Inbox's bundling and other features that have yet to make their way to Gmail until Google decides to bring them over.
