Dropbox to shut down Carousel and Mailbox

Dropbox announced Monday that it’s going to shut down two of its applications, including Mailbox, which was once a popular inbox management tool before some of its features were adopted by competing services. It will also soon stop offering Carousel, its photo-focused application, though some of the more popular features will live on inside of Dropbox.

“The Carousel and Mailbox teams have built products that are loved by many people and their work will continue to have an impact,” Dropbox CEO Drew Houston said. “We’ll be taking key features from Carousel back to the place where your photos live – in the Dropbox app. We’ll also be using what we’ve learned from Mailbox to build new ways to communicate and callaborate on Dropbox.”

You still have some time to use both applications, however. Mailbox, first acquired back in 2013, will shut down on February 26, while Carousel will shut down on March 31. The company says it’s sorry to cut off access to products it knows people still love, but said it thinks the “increased focus will help us create even better experiences for you in the months and years to come.”
