It’s been ten years since Google announced the launch of a service that had been in testing for a long time. In a press release, the now-American giant announced that it was testing a preliminary version of what would later become the most popular email service, even surpassing Hotmail in 2012 in terms of the number of registered users.
At the beginning of the service, obtaining accounts was restricted by an invitation system, and the only ones who could freely use the service were Google’s own employees, who were dedicated to testing the correct operation. After the launch, users of Google services had some invitations to distribute among their friends and thus, little by little, the user base grew, generating a lot of expectation. On February 13, 2007, the invitation system was eliminated and anyone could register freely.
