What is Gmail?

Gmail is an email service created by Google in the early stages of the modern internet. It provides a reliable, well-designed, and safe email environment with file storage. Gmail is still one of the most used email services worldwide, with over a billion active users.

What are the key features of Gmail?

  • Intuitive interface: The whole interface is continuously improved over the years, and it offers a smooth, intuitive, and easy-to-understand interface. Even the first time you use it, you will quickly understand how to do or find what you need and configure it the way you want. 
  • Handy mailbox: You will be able to fully configure your Gmail account using folders, filters, and marks to automatically make your email account sort and put your emails in the right place so that everything is kept prioritized and well organized.

  • All in one place: Using Gmail, you will be able to use all your accounts in one place. It remains simple to consult all your mailboxes. Also, you can use non-Gmail accounts so that you don't need to log in to other email providers.
  • Expandable: Gmail can be much more than what it is by default, as you can add extensions or add-ons to integrate Gmail with lots of valuable tools to be more productive and efficient. For example, you can add Trello to convert emails into cards, Dropbox to upload and send files in Gmail with ease and stay synced on different devices, or Zoom to start or schedule a meeting with the email-sender with a click.
  • Lots of tools: You will get access to Google Drive storage, and be able to share content with other people. You will also be able to use other Google applications like Google Docs, Google Sheets, Google Slides, Google Calendar, Google Meet, Google Forms, and more.
  • Security: Thanks to the Gmail AI-enhanced spam-filtering solution, Gmail can keep your private information safe as it blocks billions of spam. It can also protect you against phishing and malware by scanning the content of your emails. In addition, the Safe Browsing features protect you by identifying dangerous links in emails. You will also get notifications if suspicious logins and unauthorized activities are detected. Another cool security feature is to make your messages expire after a given period of time and removing the option for recipients to forward, copy, download, or print your message from Gmail.
