Unsurprisingly Gmail has made it onto our list, and rightly so. Gmail is a hugely popular webmail service with a minimalist design and a user-friendly interface, complete with an admin console for business users.
April 2018 saw Google launch its "biggest update yet", delivering added security controls and smart features for reducing clutter.
One of the headline features is a new right hand panel which includes various popular add-ons for Gmail, such as Calendar and Tasks. This allows users to view their calendar within Gmail, making it easier to see availability and schedule meetings without switching tabs. Other new features include email nudging, snoozing, one click unsubscribe and full offline functionality.

When it comes to security, Google has been working hard to cut down on phishing attacks using its machine learning algorithms and a new colour coded warning system. If a message is deemed by Google's algorithms as potentially malicious it is marked red, while lesser risks are marked yellow.
There is now a 'confidential mode', designed to protect sensitive data in case of an attack. This means users can now send an email in confidential mode and set a threshold for how long the content remains, as well as the power to manually revoke an email.
Currently, G Suite Basic costs £3.30 per user/month and its business addition is £6.60 per user/month.
On 2 April 2019 a new pricing structure will be implemented for G Suite Basic and Business Additions, marking this first change in price in 10 years.
In the US, G Suite Basic will increase by $1, and G Suite Business by $2. Price increases for other regions like the UK will be adjusted to recognise the increase in April.
The price change will not effect G Suite Enterprise users who still pay £20 a month.
