Google Addresses Claims of Shutting Down Gmail Services

The teach giant company, Google has finally come out to address claims of Shutting it’s Gmail Services.

This was after viral X, formerly Twitter post which surfaced a few days ago alleging that Google would be Shutting down Gmail Services in August and garnered over seven millions views.

A purported screenshot of an email addressed to Gmail users from Google showed the company was “sunsetting Gmail” on August 1 this year. The email also claimed that after August, Gmail will no longer “support sending, receiving and storing emails”. The screenshot was shared thousands of times over social media platforms, with creators claiming the move came after Google faced backlash over its AI image tool, Gemini. The image tool was the focus of a controversy this week after it generated images of “racially-diverse” Nazi soldiers.

However ,the giant tech company has clarified through it’s official X Platform that Gmail is not shutting down and it is here to stay despite the viral hoaxes on social media .

Adding that the email services will continue to operate as Usual, refuting the viral rumors.

The company experts further poured cold water on rumors of Shutting down the HTML version of Gmail this year and the entire email service.

Gmail is the world’s most popular email service, with more than 1.5bn active users worldwide.

And despite emphatically rejecting the false claims in the hoax message, it is true that Google has shut some services in recent years.
