It has been 15 years since Google‘s email service hit the web in 2004. The search engine giant introduced what has today become the game-changing service, most commonly used to send and receive emails. In fact, the birth of the service was inspired by one user’s feedback who was tired of trying to locate her messages buried deep in her inbox.
Back then, Gmail pioneered a new and secure approach to email with 1GB of free storage and lightning-fast Google search built right in. Having said that, Gmail totally eclipsed the other service provider including AOL, Hotmail, Microsoft and Yahoo. Eventually, it became one of the company’s most revolutionary achievements as well.
