E-mails have been around for quite a while now, they are pretty much one of the first services that came up with the development of the personal computer. Over the years, many companies have created their own emailing platforms to provide computer users with an easy and practical means to communicate with friends, family, and colleagues. These services were then carried over to portable devices, such as phones and tablets.

Gmail is the email provider developed by one of the biggest and most prestigious tech companies in the world: Google. If you are looking for an app to handle your emails in a clean and simple manner, Gmail is definitely one of the best options in the market.

How to create a Gmail account

To have access to Gmail, you need to create a Google account. You can then use these same credentials to access all products provided by Google, like Gmail, Google Play, Google Drive, and even YouTube.

To create your account, simply go to the Google Account sign-in page, tap "Create account", and follow the steps indicated. The process is quite straightforward, and you won't need to provide much information to open it. Once your account is set up, use those credentials to sign in to Gmail.

Features from the Gmail App

You can access your Gmail account from your computer and portable devices. To use it on your phone or tablet, the most practical thing is to download the Gmail app, which has some interesting features, different from the web version:

  • Use of emojis to react in a fast and fun way to emails.
  • Find your emails faster and easily with the simplified UI
  • Synchronize different email accounts from different providers (such as Yahoo!, Outlook, Samsung, etc) in your Gmail account so you can have all your emails together in one app.

Safety

Gmail is a long-standing emailing service provider and, over time, has developed one of the safest products available in this area. With Gmail, you can rest assured that your data and information are safe from cybercriminals. Moreover, Gmail provides phishing protections that notify you when an email seems suspicious and prevents spam, malware, and dangerous links from reaching your inbox.

Scanning of emails

Gmail provides protection from malware and cybercriminals and also divides your emails into different categories, such as the main inbox, an inbox where all advertising emails are stored, and a spam folder. But how does Gmail know where each email goes? And how do they know if an email is suspicious? Well, in order to provide these services, Gmail scans the emails that you send and receive. This functionality has raised some privacy concerns, especially since Google used to use that data to add context-sensitive ads on its UI. These privacy issues led to several lawsuits that ended up with Google eliminating the use of contextual content for advertising purposes.

Integration with other products from Google

Google provides numerous products to its users besides Gmail. The good thing about it is that all their products are connected and synchronized, which provides a great user experience. If you receive an email with an invitation to an event or a flight reservation, for example, Google Calendar will automatically detect it and offer you the possibility to save it in your calendar.

The documents and images sent to you can be easily stored on your Google Drive account. On this app, you will also find that Google Chat and Google Meet have already been added to the Gmail interface. Google provides, no doubt, one of the most complete and elevated user experiences with its seamless integration of products.

Pros:

  • Integration with other products from Google.
  • User-friendly interface.
  • Allows synchronization with email accounts from other providers.

Cons:

  • Concerns regarding the privacy of its users.
  • Inbox backup not available.
  • Emails wrongfully sent to spam folder.
