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?

Gmail App and Gmail itself are like the rest of Google and is paid by the ads that they put into the interface and the information they harvest.

It isn't free and tbh I think it is surprising that it didn't already have ads in the Gmail App.
