In 2004 google launched a new email service called Gmail. From that till now it’s a leading and most popular email provider in the world with around 1.8 Billion users.
Today, Gmail is an essential element, not only in our communication but also in our lives. Especially this service is used by 61% of 18-29-year-olds that includes students and businessmen and women across the globe. In 2020, as per a Statista report, around 306.4 billion emails are sent and received daily which could increase to 347.3 billion in 2023.
