Elon Musk teases Xmail service

It could be the next big thing or it could be another one of his jokes.

Elon Musk is known for his ambitious projects. Now, he might be planning to take on Gmail with his own email service, Xmail.

Musk hinted at the possibility of Xmail in a post on X, formerly Twitter. He responded to a tweet from Nate McGrady, an engineer at X, who asked him “When we making Xmail?”. Musk simply replied with “It’s coming”.

Given Musk’s reputation for disruption, Xmail could potentially challenge the dominance of Gmail, which has over 1.8 billion users worldwide.

Google’s Gmail is the most popular email service in the world. It offers 15GB of free storage that’s shared and integrated with other Google products and adds various security and customization options. Recently, Google also added its AI, Gemini, to the platform as well.

No further details about Xmail were revealed, so it’s unclear how it would differ from existing email services or what features it would offer. The service could also leverage the user base and technology of X and integrate with the social media platform. Of course, a quick search on Google also revealed one issue Musk’s team will face — the name Xmail is already taken.

Knowing Musk, Xmail could be the next big thing in the email industry, or it could be another one of his jokes. Either way, it is generating a lot of buzz and curiosity, which is probably what he wanted.
