How To Log In To Gmail
When it comes to the best free email service provider, Gmail is just not one of the most popular but also considered one of the best. In fact, most people love Gmail so much that they abandoned their Yahoo mail and other free email provider’s account just to sign up for Gmail.
Gmail is a free email service which is provided by Google Inc and has been around for a number of years now. This email service allows you to store your email on the web instead of storing them on your computer. You can log into your Gmail account either on the web or simply by downloading the Gmail app which makes it easier to access your emails. Once you have your Gmail app on your smartphone, you will always receive notification of new emails as far as you have active internet connection.
According to the available data, Gmail has over 500 million users worldwide. It is only topped by Yahoo mail just because Yahoo mail was first to come into the scene. When you create your Gmail account, you will be given a good 15GB worth of storage space to store all your files. This space is always more than enough for most people. However, if you feel like it is not enough, you can always pay to increase the storage space that is currently available to you.
What’s The Difference Between Yahoo mail and Gmail
Since Gmail and Yahoo mail is the two biggest free email provider, it is important that we take a look at the differences and similarities among these two giants:
While Gmail is owned by Google, having a Gmail account allows you to enjoy other Google’s product such as YouTube, Google Doc, and other products. You will need a Gmail account in the first place to use Google product. Yahoo mail is owned by Yahoo and you need an account with them to enjoy some of their services such as Yahoo Messenger.
Gmail has a much better looking and arranged user-interface compared to Gmail. Moreover, you will be presented with minimal ads compared to Yahoo mail where you will have to deal with numerous ads.
Gmail is better at detecting spam messages compared to other free email providers including Yahoo mail. This means that if you are using Gmail as your preferred email provider, you will have to deal with fewer spam messages.
