Know how many conversations are there in your Gmail account right now

Depending upon what access you have given to Google, it keeps recording the activities you do through Google services to give you the best possible services. All the information regarding your activity is stored and accessed through your Google account. Usually, the information which Google collects is your location, search history, file count in your google drive and many more.

In addition to this, Google also keeps the record of your Gmail account. So, you can check how many Gmail conversations are stored in your account, how many emails you have received last month, how many emails are there in your inbox, spam or trash folders, who is accessing your Gmail account, how many chats are currently open in your Gmail account etc. In this tutorial, we will brief you how can you check all these data regarding your Gmail account in the most effortless way.

You can find the statistics of your Gmail account from now to the time when you just get started with Gmail. It is not rocket science to know the Gmail statistics, it is just a few clicks away. All you need to do is follow the steps given below:

Google now shows Limited Statistics Only

After recent updates, Google only collects and shows limited statistics of a Gmail account due to the privacy concerns. However, this is not how it has always been.

Earlier, Google used to keep and show many other useful statistics like:

  • Number of Emails sent by you in a certain period of time.
  • Your most contacted person or Email Address.
  • Whom you send the most Emails in the prior month etc.

But Unfortunately, Google no longer collect all these data or if they do they no longer provide us options to check them.  As of now, you can only access the handful of data by following the steps mentioned earlier in this article.
