Google

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?

Totally agreed. They think Google is a nonprofit.

Oh, but Google does profit from GMail, they scan email content to learn more from you and show you adds in other places.
