Google Responds to Gmail is shutting down News

Google has a history of discontinuing its products and services, although typically not those that are widely used or highly popular. Therefore, it was surprising when rumors about Google planning to shut down the world's most popular email service, Gmail, began to spread rapidly. The anxiety among Gmail users prompted Google to address the issue.

The rumor originated from a message circulating online, particularly on social media platforms like X (formerly Twitter) and TikTok. Some reports suggest that TikTok played a significant role in its dissemination. The message claimed that Google would sunset Gmail later in the year, citing backlash over the Gemini image generation as a reason.

The message stated, "After years of connecting millions worldwide, enabling seamless communication, and fostering countless connections, the journey of Gmail is coming to a close. As of August 1, 2024, Gmail will officially be sunsetted, marking the end of its service. This means Gmail will no longer support sending, receiving, or storing emails."

Recognizing the impact of the rumor, Google swiftly issued a "community clarification" post on X, aiming to address the misinformation surrounding the alleged Gmail shutdown.
