Gmail is by far, one of the top email services in the world. It works under the Google umbrella, which is one of the reasons why it became so popular. Gmail is simple to use, fast, reliable, and it has a sleek interface that makes the experience feel premium, though it is free. Gmail works wonders for businesses of all sizes, and it has practical bulk email sending capabilities. The service was launched on April 1, 2004. It evolved a lot from its humble beginning, and now it has over 1.5 billion registered users. Google's mail servers scan all emails by various criteria, including malware and spam, but also to add context-sensitive advertisements next to emails. Privacy activists severely criticized that advertising practice because of data retention concerns, ease of monitoring by third parties, and more. Progress Initially, Gmail offered a storage capacity of one gigabyte per user, considerably more than its competitors. Currently, Gmail offers 15 gigabytes of free storage, with emails up to 25 megabytes in size and receive emails up to 50 megabytes in size, including attachments. Thanks to Google's input, users can insert files straight from Google Drive into a conversation. Gmail features a search-oriented interface and a view mode similar to internet forums. Gmail gained fame also because of its early adoption of Ajax. Current Version The app reached version 2020.07.26.325118081.
