No, Google isn't shutting down Gmail: this is what's happening

A strange rumor on X, formerly Twitter, has caused a lot of chaos. Many people suddenly claimed that Google was planning to shut down Gmail on August 1st. Of course there is nothing to it. However, the option to view Gmail in basic HTML will be gone, a feature that very few people still use.

In the news: “After years of connecting millions of people, Gmail's journey has come to an end. Gmail will officially end on August 1, 2024. “From that date, Gmail will no longer support sending, receiving and saving emails,” several people read in a viral screenshot on X on Thursday. Don't panic, because this is actually a false message.

  • To clear up all the misunderstandings, Google itself announced it gmail It remains present.
  • That's one simple post on X What is causing confusion among so many people is further evidence of how easy it is to spread fake news. Since Elon Musk decided to make it easier to buy blue check marks, anyone can be verified on X and there is no easy way to know if someone is a trusted source or not.

The fact that false rumors about Gmail's disappearance were able to spread so quickly may have something to do with the fact that Google is actually discontinuing one of the specific features of its email service. This is the basic HTML view. This is a way to display your emails in a very simplified way and without a beautiful layout. With a very slow internet connection, it may sometimes be appropriate to switch to this, because displaying HTML requires much less data. However, this version lacks many of the functions that you have.

  • Since January 1st, the few people who are still using this HTML view are slowly converting to the standard view.
