Gmail is one of the most used email services used in the world today, but nothing is perfect; Gmail too to has its problems. Despite making regular upgrades and improvements to the service, there are some major Gmail problems that are still there. Today, we will tell you what the common Gmail problems are, and some tools to solve these problems.
Most of these tools come as Gmail extensions, but some tools are used on the desktop as well as on the Gmail Android app. So let’s get to know what are the Gmail problems are also their solutions. For using these tools and extensions you should have basic knowledge about using the internet browsers and Gmail. So we assume you already have that required knowledge.
Audio Alerts for Email
Google Chrome does have audio and visual alerts but Gmail missed an audio alert for a new incoming email. Imagine waiting for a very important email while you are working offline. What if the email comes and you don’t notice it? Not being able to reply on time can cost you a lot. Thankfully, a Gmail extension has solved this problem.
Gmail Audio Alerts is the extension that does the job for you. It not only attaches with the Chrome but also other internet browsers as well such as opera and Safari. It comes with different audio tones so that you could choose one of your linking and never miss a Gmail alert.
Managing Bulk emails in Gmail
There is a tool called email studio for Gmail that not only helps you manage bulk emails, but also has a set of other useful features as well. Here are some of the features you can get from this suite.
- Instantly send bulk emails to as many recipients as you like. These emails will be personalized; carrying the recipient name.
- Unsubscribe from unwanted subscriptions

Getting Distracting by Emails
Emails are important, but what is more important is the pending office work. Some of us are distracted so much by the incoming emails that we leave the work to check our inbox all the time. This becomes a habit and we cannot focus on our work. There is a great tool to address this problem.
Email when ready is a tool that allows us to hide our inbox so that we could not get easily distracted by every new email. If you really can’t control your urge to open the email, it has a feature to lock the inbox for a set time. Moreover, the tool also gives us stats on how many times we clicked on the inbox and how long we used the Gmail in a day so that we could analyze our time management.
