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?

As long as it works as the browser version it would just mean now you'd have two spam folders instead of one (and you should be able to opt-out as well).

Then again I haven't seen any of those ads from Gmail in my Promotions folder yet.
