Get started with Gmail

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Gmail is built on the idea that email can be intuitive, efficient, and useful. And maybe even fun.

Labels instead of folders
Labels do the work of folders with an extra bonus: a conversation can have several labels, so you’re not forced to choose one particular folder. Learn more

Archive instead of delete
You shouldn’t ever have to throw things away. Archiving moves messages out of your inbox and into “All Mail,” so they don’t clutter your inbox but remain searchable in case you ever need them again. Learn more

Conversation view
Gmail groups emails and their replies in your inbox, so you always see your messages in the context of your conversation. Related messages are stacked neatly on top of each other, like a deck of cards. Learn more

Chat and video chat
You don’t have to use another program — chat is built right into Gmail. Learn more
You can even talk face to face with voice and video chat. All you need is a webcam and a small download that takes seconds to install.
