Today (very predictably, we would argue) Gmail product manager Matthew Izatt announced via a blog post that Google is sunsetting the more experimental Inbox app and bringing over things the company has learned to the main Gmail app.
Google launched Inbox while it still tried to make Gmail better, but not as an alternative to the latter. Key among those features will be bundling, that can help users customise inbox tabs and notifications.

As years rolled out, Inbox became more popular among its users, and later began rolling out forward-thinking feature like Smart Replies and Unified Inbox. Inbox will be deprecated at the end of March next year. This added functionality pulled a good number of users away from Gmail as they added to the email experience without combining the usual headaches caused by using third-party email clients. At the time, Google released a statement telling users not worry about the future of Inbox. Five months later, though, and Google looks to have changed its mind. There are tons of email services and email apps that accompany them. Vale Inbox, we truly loved you.
Many of these features slowly became redundant though, as both Gmail and Android itself started adopting Inbox's core features. Whether that is going back to the Gmail app, or using a third-party app/service.
