So there you have it - ads are very likely going to be part of Gmail soon. After all, it seems almost silly to not monetize a core app with an absolutely massive install base - between 500 million and a billion. I just hope these ads won't be overly intrusive, and from the looks of things, the Gmail team is approaching the situation with care.

Ads on my Android Gmail application? Seriously, Google?

Alternatives?

Last time I checked I paid for my Android phone. So from my point of view I did pay money and I expect an ad-free mail app as part of the bargain.That is what I get if I buy an iPhone or a Windows Phone.


And you get an ad free mail app called "mail".
