2 Ways to Bring Back Inbox by Gmail

Bring back Inbox by Gmail with two different workarounds, including a new Chrome extension and installing an older, working version…

Google officially killed off Inbox yesterday. Prior to its demise, Google plucked key tools out of the once innovative client. Ultimately, reducing its previously ingenious evolution to just another communications platform. But, Inbox by Gmail isn’t gone forever. It can live on — at least for a little while longer — in one of two ways.

2 Ways to Bring Back Inbox by Gmail

One way to bring back Inbox by Gmail is through Inbox Theme for Gmail. It’s a Chrome browser extension which brings back that wonderful interface inside of Gmail.

For those who want to continue to enjoy the experience, this extension helps out. Unfortunately, it doesn’t magically trigger any of those lost options but it doesn’t break any functions, either.

Another way to continue to use Inbox by Gmail is to use a workaround. Redditors in the r/Android community have dug up and installed old versions of the email interface. And, it works. (That is, for a short term fix, anyway.)
