  • theKashey
    Anton Korzunov (@theKashey) reported from Sydney, State of New South Wales

    @ryanflorence @gmail (and @Twitter btw) consumes 1 Gb RAM each, and consumes my CPU even when not in use. So yes - their load time does not mean anything for me. I load them one a month. So no - the reason why some applications are slow affects your system as a whole.

    @THEREALRTU There seems to also be a problem with gmail lately. Some emails get incredibly delayed and sometimes full days later.

    @madebygoogle Thanks! My Chromecast problem was fixed by doing factory reset. Problem is I posted issue to Chromecast help community and received post with phone number for Chromecast support, which I (naively) called and gave her name,phone,gmail address. Told me to (1)

    @ArtemR @gmail Okay.. But I've seen it happen with different apps, that has worked without any issues on my OnePlus 5T

    But Gmail could do better. I hate how slow it is now. Sometimes it just loads first seven emails on the first page and there's no way to get the rest. Like none. Except another long reload

    Axel Napolitano (@axel_napolitano) reported

    @HerraBRE It's funny if someone tells you that you can improve privacy at gmail by configuring a mail client to download mails and delete them from the server. They already have been received and processed. BTW: You can do this with almost all POP clients if server supports POP (most do).

    Rip my Pokémon go account I guess, trying to transfer Pokémon to the new game and apparently the gmail account I use to login was disabled so I can't login. There's not customer support number for @NianticHelp either.

  • jay_zeke
    Zeke Polaris (@jay_zeke) reported

    @gmail I did that yesterday, the cache. If I clear cookies then that will log me out of everything. And don't lie to me and say it will not, because I already tried it because of Microsoft asked me to and it didn't do anything. No fix.

  • fashy
    AF (@fashy) reported

    @ryanflorence If Gmail took an extra 10 whole seconds to startup in order to load some code that was going to keep my memory usage and CPU down on the tab for 100 hours, I would make that trade.

  • jay_zeke
    Zeke Polaris (@jay_zeke) reported

    @gmail Your service is still broken!!!!!!!!!! The new updated version to Gmail doesn't work. Keeps failing to save draft and doesn't even let me SEND!!!! It's like old broken Gmail again.

    David Bermingham (@daveberm) reported from Medford Lakes, New Jersey

    @bryancostanich Add Pinning, Sweeping, Snoozing and the ability to schedule a meeting from an email while also using the preview pane then @Gmail would be acceptable. Please fix those problems before retiring #googleinbox . Or fix Mac Outlook G-Suite Sync so it doesn’t download whole inbox.

    @gmail I just found out YouTube is launching the exact same service as VUDU and SonyCrackle and started blocking my emails right about the same time I started promoting them. That is the sole reason why Google has suppressed my emails and shut down my company silently.

  • rivasdiaz
    Ramon Rivas (@rivasdiaz) reported

    @ArtemR @gmail Although the problem may be shown due to the memory manager in the Pixel 3, that would actually be a bug on Gmail. The app should reload the email even if the view is destroyed or the process killed. Android API was designed for that since day 1.

  • sebmck
    Sebastian McKenzie (@sebmck) reported

    @addyosmani @ryanflorence I definitely don’t use gmail as a long lived tab. In fact, realtime updates are so slow, when I’m expecting an email I just refresh the page.

  • craigbuckler
    Craig Buckler (@craigbuckler) reported

    @AdamRackis Perhaps, but: 1. Gmail has become more unstable - especially after the new UI. I have to refresh several times a day. 2. Poor performance hurts those using slower devices. 3. There's absolutely no reason Gmail needs to be slow!

  • craigbuckler
    Craig Buckler (@craigbuckler) reported

    @jiyinyiyong Unfortunately, that's not possible. I did think Inbox would become the default Gmail UI but was too scared to switch! Glad I didn't now. I have a horrible feeling Google will shut down Gmail once the whole world depends on it!

  • craigbuckler
    Craig Buckler (@craigbuckler) reported

    @simevidas @MajorDamo That's one of the problems with Gmail. When issues occur, they can be really obscure and difficult to reproduce. I often see unread counts fail to update or the "drop files here" element staying permantently on-screen.

    @gmail Hi. I have a real problem. I have had my email address since 2004. And now I am getting the emails of someone with the same name (mine is with a period, the others isn't) & I am concerned they may be getting private communications intended for me. Please help!

    Gmail got huge over the years. Then I start a company who relies on email. Then Google just one day starts blocking my emails. Pretty much shutting down my company. I'm not a spammer, there is no reason for this they just do it. There is nothing you can either man.

    @DwellerYsul @HappyManor @Videoscare @trogdor8768 @the_waginator @hboulware The server was illegal under records laws. Using it to send classified info was illegal. If there were no server and she had sent the classified info on a gmail account, she would have still been breaking the law.
