For nearly as long as Gmail has existed, Google has scanned your mails to gather information about you and display you relevant ads.
Well, today Google has announced that this email scanning will be retired from the free consumer Gmail service "later this year".
The new Gmail data scanning policies just bring the consumer version of Gmail more in line with the rest of Google's products and services.
Google's practice of scanning Gmail messages has always been controversial, with the company defending multiple lawsuits and even facing wiretapping charges in the US.
Google says it's changing course so its free Gmail service operates more like the subscription version that it has sold to more than 3 million companies.
But Google has finally made a decision to end the practice of scanning emails for advertising, according to a blog post published Friday by Google Cloud senior vice president Diane Greene. "Ads shown are based on users' settings". You can also opt to disable personalized ads altogether.
Deciding to make Gmail a little more private could help Google convince people to stick with its service instead of turning to others.
So while this is a change which affects consumer Gmail accounts, it does also seem as though it is one created to further reassure G Suite Gmail customers that whichever Gmail services they use (G Suite or consumer), the same experience, and security, can be expected.
The Mountain View, California, company said it would stop the ad-driven scanning of Gmail later this year. Gmail add-ons will enable features like payments and invoicing directly within Gmail, further revolutionizing what can be accomplished in email.
