Happy 10th birthday Gmail
Google's Gmail has reportedly turned 10 years old this April 1st.
The company had launched its email service in beta form 10 years ago on April 1st, 2004.
According to the Verge, in the beginning, Gmail was an invite-only affair, and invites would remain the only way of signing up until 2007.
Later on, Gmail was made much easier to access, and it went on to become the most sought after email service, putting its rivals to shame.
While Gmail has evolved and seen numerous design changes, it finally dropped the "beta" label in 2009, the report added.
