Gmail is one of the best email services the world has ever seen.
It’s developed under the Google umbrella, which is one reason it gained so much popularity.
Gmail is easy to use, quick, reliable, and it has a sleek interface that makes the experience feel premium at all times, though the service is free.
Gmail works wonders for most businesses, and it has practical bulk email sending capabilities, which comes in handy at some times.
The service was introduced on April 1, 2004. It progressed a lot from its humble beginning, and now it registers over 1.5 billion active users.
Google’s mail servers analyze all emails by specific criteria, including malware and spam, and add context-sensitive recommendations to future emails. Privacy activists severely criticized Gmail’s advertising practice because of data retention concerns, ease of monitoring by third parties, etc.
However, the word suggestion feature is worth it when you compose an email.
At first, Gmail offered a storage capacity of only a gigabyte per user, but at that time, it was considerably more than its competitors.
Currently, Gmail offers 15 gigabytes of free storage, with emails up to 25 megabytes in size and incoming emails up to 50 megabytes in size, including attachments.
Thanks to Google’s service roster, users can attach files straight from Google Drive into a conversation.
Gmail features a search-oriented interface and a view mode similar to internet forums, doing reading emails a breeze.
Gmail adopted Ajax very early along the way, and that also boosted its popularity.
The app reached version 2020.09.06.33216885. According to the patch notes, the newest version promises “bug fixes and performance improvements.”
We recommend keeping Gmail updated to not miss out on the latest features that it has to offer. Gmail receives countless over-the-air (OTA) updates each week, so make sure that you keep your device connected to a reliable network like mobile carrier networks or home wi-fi.
