Exclusive: Gmail will soon allow you to have a personalized email address for $ 2 per month
It looks like Google is ready to roll out a new custom Gmail address feature for standard Gmail users. While it has been possible for business Gmail users to have a [email protected] address, if you are a standard Gmail user, you would be pretty much stuck with the standard [email protected] address forever.
With this new feature, however, you’ll be able to switch to a [email protected] email address for your standard Gmail account for a small fee of $ 2 per month. For that all you get is the address with nothing more, but if that’s all you wanted it might be a small price to pay for it compared to the more expensive Gmail for worktops.
The option you see above in the screenshot has appeared randomly next to the email on the Gmail website. By clicking the “Get Started” button on the $ 2 plan, another pop-up was opened that asked for details like whether you have an existing domain or not (unfortunately we don’t have a screenshot of that). The pop-up also informs that the service is not yet available and will be in the future. Unfortunately, the option has since disappeared from the Gmail website.
We don’t yet know when the service will start rolling out to everyone. It seems for now that Google is still gauging user interest by selectively showing it to users.
