Gmail is the name of the email service powered by the internet giant Google. It was started in the year 2004, but at that time, it was in its beta version only and was only available via invites. Even then, the craze for obtaining it had gone berserk. After three years, the company made the service free for all, though it continued to be in its beta version. The final version as we see it today was ultimately launched in the year 2009. Since then, Google has made certain changes to Gmail, including its appearance, yet the level of service and its features remain just the same.
With time Google integrated its email service with its other services as well as acquisitions too. This made the popularity of Gmail soar to even greater heights, and by the year 2012, Gmail had become a global leader in terms of number of users of its services, overtaking the previous leader Hotmail, an email service powered by another computing giant, Microsoft. As of 2012, Gmail had more than 425 million users.
A Gmail account offers you some of best features that you can ask for. To begin with, a user gets a starting email storage space of 10 GB, which keeps on increasing with time. Then you have the option to chat right from your inbox, for GTalk comes integrated with it. You can also read Google news, watch YouTube videos, create a blog on Blogger and do a lot more, with the same username that you have for your Gmail! Sounds amazing, isn’t it?
There are times, when one may experience some issue with his Gmail account. The type and complexity of one such issue may vary from another significantly, however attending to any of them will be always necessary, and so one may need to have ample information about the support options that he can make use of when needed.
Google is also a class apart when it comes to delivering some really good technical support services. For those who hold a free Gmail account, they can get in touch with Gmail Support via email, or could use Gmail Help modules that are available on its webpage. Those who hold a premium Google account, they can get access to instant support services too, such as support over the phone.
One could also consider making use of third party support services, which work independently of Google, yet deliver same kind of services.
