  • (2023-08-26) Владимир К.: Открываешь браузер - расширение не активно, серого цвета, пока не нажмешь на него и не откроешь почту. После прочтения писем они так и остаются отображаться непрочитанными в расширении, пока опять же не откроешь почту. Отвратительное расширение!
  • (2023-07-30) Nice Google: 卸载了。。没用的东西。老是会把账户弄到退出。一个月改了1次密码,用这个插件一进去看了个邮件马上把我账户退掉了。说我电脑有恶意软件要改密码才能登陆 服了 自家的东西都报这个低级错误
  • (2023-07-11) Dorian Prosenitsch: Its a little bit buggy, sometimes the number keep stuck at unread mails, sometimes its not showing new mails, but newer for longer than a day. And thats better than missing emails all together
  • (2023-07-07) Jakub Kotrs: The checked gets stuck every now and then, showing a badge with number, but clicking it doesn't do anything. I have to unpin it from the bar and pin it again to refresh it, then clicking opens gmail again and badge disappears. Mildly annoying.
  • (2023-06-15) Piet Konings: Werkt niet meer, bevriest steeds en reageert niet op de muisklik. Jammer!
  • (2023-06-15) Estrague Shadowdancer: Good idea. Poor execution. I find it really sad that of the plugins I regularly use the one actually from Google and is fairly simplistic compared to the others is the buggiest.
  • (2023-06-13) Fernando Savi: O melhor!!
  • (2023-06-12) Jim Fath: Does what it says but, several times a month, it will simply stop working. Nothing will happen when you click the icon. In those instances, you have to RIGHT CLICK, select MANAGE EXTENSION and turn off the ext then turn it back on. It SHOULD start working again. This started happening a few year back and has never been addressed.
  • (2023-06-02) Fernando Ribeiro: Uso a extensão há tempos, gosto muito, mas agora ela está atualizando erroneamente o número de e-mails. Mostra cerca de 50 e-mais não lidos a mais do que realmente tem. Já reinstalei mas continua bugado, não sei como solucionar.
  • (2023-05-31) José Miguel Valverde: Si no os funciona, haced clic en los tres puntitos de la esquina superior derecha del navegador, vais a "Más herramientas" y después hacéis clic en "Extensiones". Buscáis la extensión Google Mail Checker y en su caja, hacéis clic en el botón de la esquina inferior derecha para que se deslice a la derecha y se desactive. Volvéis a hacer clic en este botón para que se active de nuevo, y ya os tiene que funcionar otra vez.
  • (2023-05-25) Chris Knife: Seit einigen Monaten gibt es das Problem, dass die Erweiterung plötzlich nicht mehr funktioniert. Das Symbol rechts oben zeigt keine neue Email an, wenn man drauf klickt passiert nichts. Wenn man die Erweiterung in den Optionen aus und wieder anmacht geht es wieder. Das war früher nicht so. Ansonsten super Erweiterung ohne die ich nicht mehr Leben will.
  • (2023-05-25) Aleksandr_v3: 2023 год проблема так и осталась, нужно удалять и снова устанавливать.
  • (2023-05-10) Nick Schürmann: Stopped working
  • (2023-05-09) DarckObelix: top
  • (2023-05-03) Jonatan Melo: Últimamente no funciona. Ni actualiza ni direcciona.
  • (2023-04-14) Roman Procházka: Dřív fungoval perfektně, ale poslední dobou se zasekává a ukazuje špatné informace, například teď mi ukazuje už dva dny 4 emaily, i když jsem jich měl víc a momentálně nemám žádné.
  • (2023-03-30) Tor Ivan Boine: Stopped working with the last chrome update
  • (2023-03-17) Christopher H: This extension hasn't updated the unread amount for the last five to sixth months without disabling and reenabling the extension. Another product killed by Google?
  • (2023-03-12) Randy W: I love this extension! The newest Chrome update has broken it though. I hope there is a fix on the way.
  • (2023-02-26) Aaron Scholl: Used to be a great extension. Then it stopped working.
  • (2023-02-22) Pepper Warren: Used this for many years without a problem. Periodically stops working lately. I suspect Google Chrome is the culprit, not the extension.
  • (2023-02-21) Victoria Pena: This extension worked really well for years! Within the last year, it has randomly stopped working when clicking the extension icon. I have had to uninstall & reinstall many times for it to work. Sometimes it'll work for weeks and other times only for a few hours.
  • (2023-02-17) Rozenn Roger: Depuis peu le bouton ne marche plus, il faut le désinstaller et le réinstaller à chaque fois, fatiguant.
  • (2023-02-16) Adler Marques: No geral a extensão é boa e eu gosto dela, mas às vezes ela não atualiza sozinha e temos que abrir o e-mail para ela atualizar as notificações.
  • (2023-02-13) Marco Chow: Seems not working at all, showing "403" or "?" instead...
  • (2023-02-07) Rickard B: I've used this extension for I don't even know how many years and it was working greate for me until about a year or so ago. The email counter seems to be a little slow now but it does update, but pressing the button and my email being opened entirely depends on which computer I am using at the time. It didn't work when I had windows 10 installed on my desktop PC but it does with Windows 11, it doesn't work on my Windows 10 personal laptop, it does work on my Windows 10 work laptop, on my mac it works about 5/10 times but requires me to restart chrome when it doesn't which isn't very productive... Quickly close the program, restore session and the press the button Vs. typing "mail.g" in the address bar. (I'd say the latter is prefereable right now) I hope this extension gets some TLC soon or I may need to look at alternatives.
  • (2023-02-02) Piotr Świtalski (Świstak): Google, you introduced a new icon for the flagship mail service, also change the logo in this application
  • (2023-01-29) Jack F: Used to be excellent, but it seems to have recently stopped working. Clicking on the button doesn't open gmail, and it doesn't refresh the number of unread emails.
  • (2023-01-26) Orange First: I really liked the Gmail checker extension. However, just at the start of the month, when I had no email, it said that I have two emails. I've been trying to fix that problem by reinstalling the extension, but it didn't work.
  • (2023-01-17) Evgeniy Aleshin: переодически перестают открывать почту, жмёшь на кнопку и ноль реакции, как минимум столкнулся с этим в середине 22 года и до сих пор проблема есть...
  • (2023-01-17) Drew Cozzens: Great when it works, but its broken
  • (2023-01-06) Joshua Poodry: doesnt work
  • (2023-01-06) T C: Very unstable.
  • (2023-01-02) Asher Langton: Used to be great, but now this extension stops working several times a day. Restarting the browser or disabling/reenabling the extension fixes the problem temporarily. It's a bad look for Google that their own extension for their own email service on their own browser doesn't work correctly.
  • (2022-03-04) Rada Maty: Vůbec neoznamuje příchozí maily, je to k ničemu odpad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • (2022-02-03) Joe Gilberto: Used it for years (probably a decade by now). Favorite Google Chrome extension. Never failed me.
  • (2022-01-14) Ira Jacobs: Does not (successfully) force email checking from POP3 accounts.
  • (2022-01-07) Graciela Cc: I love it so much

  • (2021-11-15) Adept Chaos: После установки расширения ящик gmail перестал принимать входящую почту!
  • (2021-11-11) Miguel Armas - Int: 1167: es lo suficiente sencilla u util en ese sentido: mantenerme al tanto si tengo un nuevo email. solo tienes que tener bien limpia tu bandeja de entrada, mantenerla en cero para poder notar que hay "un nuevo email".
  • (2021-11-05) Christopher Burdett: It's so simple that it has no choice but to 'just work' ... and it does. It shows the number of unread emails. You click it and it takes you there. So far so good. It's not perfect though. Sticklers for detail will soon notice that sometimes you do have to reset the notifications manually though, by clicking it again after you've checked your mail to make the badge notifications go away. Things I would like to see: Given that it is apparently published by Google itself, you'd think that the logo would be updated by now. The ability to switch Gmail accounts straight from the extension icon itself would also be a good addition.
  • (2021-10-15) Mark Perez: The email no longer opens in html view. Garbage now. The page always give me a popup when I try to close it and doesn't clear the notification when I delete emails
  • (2021-10-10) Михаил Гынин: у кого серый значок, перейдите в управление этим расширением и включите ему доступ в режиме Инкогнито, видимо с очередными обновлениями что-то с режимами защиты мудрит.
  • (2021-10-06) Dane Trbovic: Useful, the only thing I would love is a pause option... For when I am focusing, that I can pause the notifications for a set period of time, for example 30 min, 1 hour, 2 hours,... That would be great!
  • (2021-08-03) 平井伸治: 通知はされるけど、他の拡張機能とは異なり、 オプション設定ができない、 アイコン上でプレビューが見れないのは、使いづらい。 何をしているのかわからない。
  • (2021-08-01) Arsen Drako: Зависают письма. Прочел, отметил прочитанным или даже удалил... все равно висит будто новое...

  • (2023-06-13, v:4.4.0) Jeffrey: Periodically Quits Working -> Disable/Re-Enable
    As many have noted, the button quits working. It will no longer launch Gmail when you click on it and the number doesn't change to reflect new/read emails. It has done this for quite a while. I came here looking for a fix. I fix it by right-clicking the icon and choosing "Manage Extension." In the very first option I toggle "On" to disable it and then immediately re-enable it. And it then works again. I have been doing this periodically for a long time now (once a week? more?), but lately it's every other day. Bummer because I've been using this extension for years.

    I just upgraded to Windows 11. My Google Mail Checker is showing the count of new messages in only one of my gmail accounts. I have several gmail accounts all accessable via the dropdown menu when I am in any of the Gmail accounts. Is there a setting in Managing my Google Account or in each individual gmail account that will allow me to show the count total for all the accounts at once? I had this before and when I hovered over the Google Mail Checker it showed a total and then listed each account. I believe I had Google Mail Checker before the upgrade. I think I had to reinstall it. Michael Bankoff [email protected] (the one that shows total in counter) [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]
