With most of the features migrated over to Gmail, Google killed Google Inbox the same day they celebrated Gmail’s 15th birthday on April 1, 2019. Well, a lot of people wept about the loss and still miss Google Inbox’s simplicity.
While you can’t really bring it back on your phone, someone actually made a Chrome Extension that brings Inbox’s simplicity right on your desktop.
That someone is Michael Leggett, Gmail’s lead designer from 2008 to 2012 and co-founder of Google Inbox. With the desire to bring the simplified email experience to Gmail, he wrote a Chrome extension called Simplify Gmail and has made it available on Chrome Web Store for anyone to use.
Simply go to the extension page, add it to your Chrome, refresh Gmail and enjoy.
