Can you believe it has already been 15 years since Google introduced Gmail?
Most of us probably remember getting our first email address through one of the first major internet providers in the early to mid 90’s. Popular providers at the time included AOL, Prodigy, and CompuServe. The introduction of Hotmail accounts came shortly thereafter. If you think back only 1 in 10 Americans even accessed the internet at the end of 1996, the internet didn't become widely popular until between 1996 and 2001. It is crazy to think about a time before the internet existed but YES, there was a time long, long ago when the internet as it is now known didn't exist.
Now a days, the internet is necessary for just about everyone. Google is the number one search engine that is used by Americans, its popularity has grown because of the homepage is simple, easy to use, and loads quickly on both mobile and desktop devices. Google offers users a number of free features that are easily accessed through one main account, thus meaning most of users have a Gmail account. Gmail is a free email service that Google offers user. This account alone gives you access to a number of free services offered by Google including Google Maps, Google Shopping, Google News, Google Play, Google Drive, Google Calendar, and more.
