Gmail is a very great way to connect with your friends, family, co-workers, employers, businesses, and corporations. Gmail is free to use electronic mail service developed by the tech giant Google. There are various ways of accessing Gmail like you can use the official app, access it from a web browser, or you can also use third-party programs that synchronize email content through POP or IMAP protocols.
This epic mail service started in the year 2004 in the month of April as a beta release, and it ended its testing phase on July 7, 2009. Initially, when Gmail was launched, the given storage capacity was 1 gigabyte per user, which was significantly a higher amount than other mail competitors of that time. Today the numbers have increased to 15 times; the service comes with 15 gigabytes of storage per user. Now Gmail users can easily send a mail up to 50 MB, and the attachment limitation is 25 megabytes. The best thing is you can also send lagers files too with the help of another google product google drive.
The interface of Gmail is very minimal, fast, and lite. It has a search-oriented UI and also has a conversation type view that looks identical to an Internet Forum. Kevin fox was the designer head for the user interface of Gmail, and his intentions were to make a design that will make the user think that they are always on one page and just changing things on that page instead of navigating to other places and see he succeeded. Now to organize the mails in an easy and flexible way, Gmail replaced the old school folders and added in its interface ‘labels’ or tags.
Spam is really a very irritating and risky thing too. To overcome the spam problem, Google developed a special spam filtering feature; that is; whenever any user marks an email as spam, now with the help of a community-driven system, it helps to identify similar future messages for all Gmail users.
Gmail Supports more than 72 languages for better user experience, from Arabic to Zulu it supports most of the language. In the year 2012, Google added over 100 virtual keyboards. Gmail also has a basic HTML version which is compatible with most of the browsers even with low internet speed the basic version works fine, and the other version of Gmail is the modern AJAX version which supports on most of the major browsers like Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, and Safari. Gmail also has developed a native app for both iOS and Android.
For security, Gmail has Two-step verification; This is not a mandatory option; it is completely on the user’s choice. If you enable Two-step verification, users are required to verify their identity using a second method after entering their username and password, which can be a mobile code, etc. Incase google detects any abnormal usage, Google may indicate that your account has been compromised or can also lock down your account for at least 24 hours.
