We live in the advanced technology era where almost everything happens so fast. Thing which were not even possible to think about few years back is available online today. More faster ways of communication is available, out of which instant messaging is at boom, still EMail ( Electronic Mail ) has got it’s own place on the internet and without which many of us can’t even think a day going down. businesses largely depend on email communication and today we are here to celebrate the GMail which has completed 10 year after going public in year 2004.
GMail was on the web in year 2000 but it went public in year 2004 and now with 10 years on the web it’s the top email service provider. When GMail was launched it’s main intention was to just improve the email experience of the users. Down the time line GMail has taken an exponential growth by leaving behind the Microsoft, AOL and other competitor in market with it’s huge user-base. Today GMail contains millions of user which gives it strength.
Now thing to watch here is, If Gmail had simply stayed a free web email service for consumers, that would have been the end of this story – but it didn’t. It succeeded in doing something neither Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail or AOL succeeded in doing – and ate up business customers, too. Last year, Google claimed it had five million businesses on its Gmail-related Google Apps, with Google partners busily installing Gmail and apps on tens of thousands of seats.n It’s the area where potential lies for GMail.
One interesting this which Larry Page says that, GMail was a response to an email from a frustrated Google fan. ” She kvetched about spending all her time filing messages or trying to find them, And when she’s not doing that, she has to delete email like crazy to stay under the obligatory four megabyte limit. So she asked, ‘Can’t you people fix this?’ “. After GMail launch she replied that “Gmail solves all of my communication needs. It’s fast and easy and has all the storage I need. And I can use it from anywhere. I love it!”
