Gmail For Windows: Here’s a Better Way in 2018

Posted by Jason Ephraim on July 2, 2018

The Best Way To Manage Gmail For Windows Users

You probably have a Gmail account. In fact, according to worldwide statistics there’s a good chance you have more than one of them. Google has announced that Gmail now has more than 1 billion monthly active users – up from the 900 million the company announced last year and up from 425 million 2012. 

It’s a no- brainer why Gmail is on fire right now. Its app has over 90.7 million monthly users for a reason. It’s an easy to use interface which is well integrated with cloud storage, making file sharing easy (Google drive), offers great work-collaboration opportunities (Google Docs) and has countless other features from Google Spreadsheets to Google Slides. Statistics even show that 94% of Gmail users use the integrated translation services in their Gmail account. However, while Gmail has made it big, they have really not done justice to PC users.

Firstly, using the Gmail site itself to manage these accounts presents a few serious problems:

  • You always have to be connected to the internet
  • It’s difficult to manage multiple accounts
  • It’s only as secure as your internet connection

Considering that Gmail makes up over 85% of all global users worldwide, you may find it odd that there is no official application for Gmail for windows. There is indeed no way for a Windows user to manage accounts directly from a PC and there is nothing in the app store that presents this function.

This is the least bit convenient for businesses, self-employed workers, people who work out in the field or in-office using Windows products. Logging into Gmail from the web is a pain, especially if you have multiple accounts to tend to throughout the day.   

That’s why more and more people are using Mailbird. It is the perfect solution to managing Gmail for Windows users. Mailbird makes juggling all of your Gmail accounts (and every other account you have) easy. It brings them all together into one beautiful and lightning-quick app. Plus, with an intuitive and easy to use interface, Mailbird makes it simple to view multiple email accounts under one tab on Windows devices.


Stay Connected, Even When You Aren’t

You can’t always be connected to the Internet. But, that shouldn’t stop you from checking your emails and composing replies effortlessly. The world is moving too quickly to miss out on important email threads – especially if you work in time sensitive environments. In some fields, responsiveness is extremely important – to close that deal, to fix that bug in the system, or to make important arrangements.

That’s where Mailbird comes in: Read through any messages from all your Gmail accounts, even when offline with Mailbird’s auto-sync function. This allows you to see your emails as quickly as possible so you can manage, respond, delete, etc… all without a connection. Then, when you do connect to the internet at a later time, Mailbird auto-syncs your accounts again so you consistently stay up-to-date with changes in your mailbox.

In many fields, email is a primary mode of communication along with chat functions and web calling. With Mailbird, you can easily:

  • Check & respond to all your emails while travelling
  • Cut down on data usage
  • Get crucial information from emails while at a conference
  • Use integrated web calling and task apps to synchronize important information into various channels

Never again find yourself left in the dark just because you can’t open your emails.

One Inbox for All Your Gmail Accounts

No more logging in and out of Google accounts just to check your messages! Mailbird does all the work for you. You can also easily respond or compose new messages as any account with our quick functions like quick compose. Other useful functions include: Search by attachment, search by profile picture and LinkedIn Lookup which easily lets you retrieve information and connect with professionals.

Here’s a scenario: imagine you’re in a meeting and you need to open up an important document last minute or you even need to share it in live time with a client. Instead of scrambling to retrieve the information coming off as distracted and unorganized to your colleagues and clients, simply use one of these search functions and you’ll have the information readably available in seconds ready to send to the client through the integrated communication app you’re using.

Did someone send you an email to the wrong address? Simply click the “from” dropdown in the “compose” window when responding and send it from any other account you manage. Best of all, your previous conversation will be forwarded along with it.

Sent the wrong details in a mass email? Don’t worry. With the unsend email function, you can delay the email for up to two minutes to catch your mistake and fix it. You no longer have to worry about awkwardly, sending another email back to every single contact apologizing for the mistake. This handy feature will certainly save you any future embarrassment and keep you on your A-game!

Introducing Unified Inbox!

Did we mention you could view all your emails in the order they were received, across all your accounts, with Mailbird’s built-in Unified Inbox? It even allows you to group emails together as conversations. Seriously, if you need one reason to move your Gmail to Mailbird, this is it. Answering emails across multiple accounts has never been easier.


So, Why Wait?

We could cover all the reasons why Mailbird is the perfect Gmail for Windows app out there, but why not just give it a try. It’s free to download, and you don’t even need your credit card! Connecting all your Gmail accounts is a breeze, and you can get started in as little as 3 minutes. Trust us, you’ll love this smart, easy and intuitive interface. Email will become a breeze!
