What makes Google email the best email service in the world?  There are three reasons that every Internet user should be using Google email.  These are three of the most powerful tools and why many are now changing to gmail.  

1. First is Google Voice

A Deaf, Hard-Of-Hearing or Speech-Impaired per...When you setup a gmail account, make sure you setup a Google voice account at the same time. This allows people to contact you via your custom phone and voice mail number which gets transcribed and then converted to text and sent to you via Gmail email. The transcription is not always the best but the ability to play the message withing the email message makes it very convenient to receive and manage your email along with all your voice mail messages.

2. Second is Attachments

Using video in communication now days is a powerful tool not only for business, but for personal use as well.  Youtube is owned by Google and it the largest video hosting site in the world. When you attach a video link to a gmail email, the video is displayed at the bottom of your email as an attachment and can be played and reviewed without ever having to leave the email message.  This is a convenience for both the sender and the receiver.

3. Third is Video and Chat Messaging

Once you build up a suitable database of contacts in your gmail contact database, the ease of instant communication makes Google Gmail a great resource for accessing all your clients, friends, associates etc from your inbox.  If any of your contacts are online at any given time, you can click on their name, send them a chat message, and if video is available on both computers, have instant video chat with a single click.

Google email keeps expanding with new and exciting features and benefits like "Google Buzz" and others, and there are many more great features and useful tools with gmail, but these are the three we use most often and find the most beneficial at this time in our online business and busy social media lives.
