Elon Musk Unveils That Xmail Is On Its Way: Rumors of Gmail's Closure Circulate

By Consultants Review Team Friday, 23 February 2024

Elon Musk, the CEO of X (previously Twitter), has announced that Xmail will launch soon, igniting rumors that it could compete with Google's Gmail service. Musk made his announcement very quickly after online reports about Gmail's upcoming closure caught on like wildfire.

The news came to light after a senior member of X's Security Engineering team Nathan McGrady tweeted about when Xmail will debut. Musk answered right away, stating that the service is planned, paving the way for what may turn out to be a big change in the email service industry.

Concerns about what would happen to Gmail grew, and the IT world was excited when a post on X went popular claiming that Google was shutting down its email service. The message, which included a snapshot of an allegedly authentic email from Google with the subject line "Google is sunsetting Gmail," caused a great deal of anxiety and conjecture on Gmail's future.

The alleged email stated that Gmail will stop supporting sending, receiving, and storing emails on August 1, 2024, and would cease all operations altogether. Even though the message received a lot of attention, many people began to doubt its veracity and its ability to be a genuine statement from Google.

According to Elon Musk, Twitter will soon only support Dark Mode

Google quickly dispelled the rumors, telling users that Gmail is "here to stay" and that it is not going away on the X platform. The business explained that in January 2024, Gmail's default appearance will change from "basic HTML" to a more colorful design.

Even when Google clarified the situation, the speculations about Gmail's demise sparked conversations about other email providers, and some people expressed interest in giving Xmail a try. In light of the rumors, another social media user shared his mistrust of Gmail and his willingness to look into other options.
