Elon Musk Set to Launch ‘XMail’ Amid Gmail Shutdown Rumours

Elon Musk, the owner of Tesla, SpaceX, and the social media platform X has announced the launch of ‘XMail’. This announcement has sparked competition with Google’s flagship Gmail service. Musk made this announcement in response to a post by a former engineer, Net Mekgredi, who asked, “When are we going to create XML?” To which Musk replied, “(it’s coming) ‘It’s coming.'” However, Musk has not provided any details regarding the launch date or any related information about XMail so far.

Elon Musk announced the launch of ‘XMail’ amid rumors circulating about the closure of Google’s email platform, Gmail. The fake news about Gmail shutting down had been spreading virally, which Gmail promptly debunked. Gmail’s official social media account posted on X, stating, ‘Gmail is here to stay.’

This rumor originated from a fake image that resembled an email from Gmail. It falsely claimed that the company was preparing to shut down Gmail by the end of the year. This image, along with similar content, went viral on various social media platforms, including X.

The fake viral post about Gmail shutting down claims, “After years of connecting millions of people worldwide and enabling seamless communication, and after encouraging countless connections, Gmail’s journey is coming to an end. From August 1, 2024, Gmail will shut down permanently, meaning it will no longer support sending, receiving, or storing emails.”

This information is false and there is no truth to the claim that Gmail will cease its services on August 1, 2024.
