  • (2022-08-09) Viacheslav B: периодически стал не работает кнопка проверки почты в меню, нужно перезапускать расширение.
  • (2022-08-08) Joakim Wahlberg: Sedan några månader så uppdateras den ibland inte utan att starta om webbläsaren. Går inte att klicka på eller nåt, fastnar liksom i något läge och sitter fast där tills webbläsaren startas om.
  • (2022-07-17) とらぼま: 良いところは拡張機能アイコンで受信を確認できてgoogle公式リリースである点。 たった、それだけ。 受信音も無いし、常時簡易html表示を選択していても標準バージョンにアクセスするし、 拡張機能上で開いたり既読付けたりもできない。 非公式拡張に比べて不便さが際立っている。
  • (2022-07-14) Salvatore Paci: Per farla funzionare nuovamente l'ho rimossa e reinstallata
  • (2022-07-10) Pedro Afonso: Não está a funcionar
  • (2022-06-30) Patrick Dailey Christoffersen: Stopped working randomly. Fix: restart chrome or deactivate > activate plugin. Repeat at least once a day :(
  • (2022-06-29) Mike Mike: Non funziona più, perchè???
  • (2022-06-26) B. D.: Won't open new gmail tab when clicking on the icon.

  • (2022-06-13) Michal Hošek: Stávkuje.Nefunguje jako tomu bylo před cca dvěmi lety.Ale co je to platné,že tu někdo napíše nějakou recenzi,když se páni vývojáři nechytnou za rypák a nesnaží se s tím něco udělat.A to není jenom tady.
  • (2022-06-09) ayl010: It's very helpful, however on rare occasions it doesn't work (by having the same number of mail even when new emails come/not leading to gmail when you click on it), and I have to reinstall it.
  • (2022-06-09) Sachin Philip: Starting to give issues for the first time. When I click the icon, Gmail doesn't open anymore unless I Restart my Chromebook, this issue persists
  • (2022-06-02) Phaedra De Backer: Used to work perfectly and loved it, but now it doesn't work anymore and hasnt been updated in 10 years so i dont have much hope of it being fixed Better to just move to another version of this
  • (2022-06-02) Amber Joy: I've used it for years and it's generally nice and useful, but the recent update changing the badge to black text on a red background is very poor contrast and hard to read. Google, please change it back or make it something more accessible!
  • (2022-06-02) Kosta: Прошу, верните нормальный цвет уведомлений! Что это за багровая полоса с незаметным чёрным цветом шрифта? Выглядит чудовищно, это цвета ошибок...
  • (2022-06-01) Kenneth Hung: I don't know who decided it was a good idea to make the notification number color as black. It's literally impossible to read since it's red on black. There's a reason why stop signs are red/white and not red/black. If you're a developer reading this, your extension is great but please change your color back.
  • (2022-05-31) clark sangster: Stopped working in chrome! Use it every day as a shortcut. Annoying.
  • (2022-05-31) Steven Lanier: Latest update changed the notification badge on the bottom right to a red/black color scheme, it is much harder to read. It would be nice to have the option of switching back to the old badge color.
  • (2022-05-28) Periklis Konstantellos: very good and very useful, but why you change the color? i can't see the numbers now. please change it back.
  • (2022-05-28) Jessy Lemieux: It was a great app for years but now it doesn't work at all most of the time. Needs a fix.
  • (2022-05-25) Default Cube: pretty slow timer, however yeah its pretty useful
  • (2022-05-25) Michael Greiner: Does not work in current chrome.
  • (2022-05-19) Fausto Turco: Purtroppo, dopo gli ultimi aggiornamenti di Chrome, l'estensione non funziona più
  • (2022-05-12) Anton Rodionov: А что случилось с расширением? Совершенно никак не реагирует на нажатие.
  • (2022-05-03) kefyras: Used to work great, but now breaks very often. 1. Clicking the extension doesn't do anything. 2. The number of unread emails stays the same. The only fix is to restart chrome, but then very soon it breaks again.
  • (2022-05-01) Kent Larsen: fungerer perfekt, men med samme gamle prob med indbakke,notifikationer på g,mail tæller ikonet
  • (2022-04-29) Jarosław P: Działa tylko dla jednego konta google.
  • (2022-04-29) H B: I've used this extension for years, but recently it doesn't work despite uninstalling/reinstalling/closing chrome/etc.
  • (2022-04-29) giuseppeREIKI Boccia: il pulsante non funziona, uso l estensione da anni, ma a partire da una settimane fa ogni volta che faccio clic sul pulsante per aprire normalmente la mia casella di posta non dà alcuna risposta. questo sta accadendo su tutti i miei dispositivi. qualcun altro ha riscontrato questo?
  • (2022-04-26) Иван Вашека: For some reason stopped working
  • (2022-04-21) Rune Hansen Duus: Too bad clicking the icon does nothing most of the time now. Extension was good while it lasted.

  • (2022-04-12) Maleny Trn: Ya no funciona ultimamente. No redirecciona al correo.
  • (2022-04-09) ryan coleman: breaks a lot in chrome recent update and only way to fix is to close chrome and reopen.
  • (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...
  • (2021-07-26) Joshua: xD the moment i added it it said 548

  • (2022-08-05, v:4.4.0) Andrew Lather: This has stopped working this past week
    I am noticing that this no longer accurately reflects my gmail unread message count. I dont want to continue to uninstall and reinstall it!
  • (2022-07-01, v:4.4.0) J Yen: Stopped working more frequently nowadays.
    The extension worked wonders for years but recently it occasionally stops working without any error message or notice. And it breaks more and more frequently nowadays. Any chance you will fix and update this lovely tiny extension?
  • (2022-06-29, v:4.4.0) Mike Mike: Gmail extension problem
    Why hasn't the gmail extension been working for some time? I tried to reinstall it but it doesn't work
  • (2022-06-29, v:4.4.0) Ronald Wee: When can we get an UPDATED ICON???
    Hi Google. Been using your extension for close to a decade already I believe. It just works and is really useful. Just a minor concern: the icon is SO OUTDATED (let alone the app)! If I'm not mistaken, it's been about 5 years since your brand's overall icon/UI (material) design was implemented and it'd be nice that this extension's icon can reflect that. Thanks.
  • (2022-06-16, v:4.4.0) Kate Downs: doesn't open
    when i click on the icon it doesn't open my mail. slightly annoying.

  • (2022-06-09, v:4.4.0) Youming Yang: badge counter color
    Hello, I have this checker installed on two different W10 PCs with chrome. On one of them, it is very aesthetically pleasing, with the standard gmail envelope, smaller red square with white text. On my other computer, it has the envelope, but a red box with black text in it, and it is much less visually pleasant for some reason. I have verified they are both the same version number, is there a way to change the font color?
  • (2022-06-09, v:4.4.0) Kelly DeYoe: Used to work perfectly... until recently
    Seems like this extension could use an update, since it apparently hasn't been touched in nearly 10 years. It used to work perfectly, but recently it works for awhile and then seems to stop working. The unread mail count is wrong / never updates, and clicking on the extension icon no longer brings up a tab with Gmail. Turning the extension off and back on again fixes it for awhile, but then it inevitably stops after some indeterminate period of time.
  • (2022-06-08, v:4.4.0) Ryan B: doesn't always work
    sometimes when clicking icon it doesn't bring up gmail. Shows new email count but doesn't clear it out when new email is read.
  • (2022-06-08, v:4.4.0) marty tholath: My Google Mail Checker has a unread bug issue

  • (2022-06-04, v:4.4.0) Ricky Poole: Number display
    The latest update has turned the number in the notification from white to black and now I have to strain to see it. It's annoying; please fix it.
  • (2022-06-03, v:4.4.0) Wendy Desnoyers: Black text and always showing one
    Since an update the text is black on the red so you can't see it now. And it always shows 1 is there when there isn't any in my email. This used to work beautifully :)
  • (2022-06-03, v:4.4.0) Patrick Doering: GMail checker not working
    nothing happens when I click on the extension.
  • (2022-06-02, v:4.4.0) Patrick Ewalt: Something broke, it's blank now for me just a solid red box.
    Under the Envelope it's no longer showing any count, just an empty red box for me, no black or any white text at all.
  • (2022-06-02, v:4.4.0) Teodor Kuduschiev: Not working
    Hello, the extension just stops working - clicking on it doesn't do anything. Doesn't show any new emails, until you restart chrome - then it stops working again on daily basis.
  • (2022-06-01, v:4.4.0) Rene Schmidt: Color of email indicator
    Email indicator changed its color. Please revert to white-on-red. Thank youuuuuu!
  • (2022-06-01, v:4.4.0) Fred Gandt: Changed indicator color difficult to read
    The number of unread emails indicated on the extension icon has changed from white-on-red to black-on-red making it very hard to read. Please revert to white-on-red. Cheers.

  • (2022-05-02, v:4.4.0) ryan coleman: extension broke since update
    This extension has recently experienced a issue since the last update. It will show emails but when you click the extension it just wont work. If you close out of chrome this will fix it, but it will just do it again. I can confirm others experiencing this issue. if you look at my recent review there are many people under my review saying the same thing. Is this something you guys are working on?

    hi, ive been using your extension for years and love it, but starting a couple weeks ago whenever i click the button to normally open my mailbox it doesnt give any response at all. this is happening across all my devices. has anyone else encountered this?
  • (2022-04-22, v:4.4.0) Chris Fenger: Not working
    Stops working until you disable/enable. Keeps happening.
  • (2022-04-21, v:4.4.0) Daniel Beaver: Stops working periodically
    +1 to the other reported problems recently; the icon count freezes and the icon no longer opens gmail after some time. Disable/enabling the extension, or restarting chrome, makes it start working again, for about a day before it breaks again
  • (2022-04-20, v:4.4.0) Charlie: Issue: Extension not functioning
    Clicking the extension icon no-longer opens a mail tab. Number of unread emails badge not showing on icon. Removing from Chrome and re-installing fixes issues temporarily. Chrome is up to date: Version 100.0.4896.127 (Official Build) (64-bit) Extension version: 4.4.0
  • (2022-04-19, v:4.4.0) Gilberto A. Rivera: Stopped working
    I recently purchased a Mac M1 Mini. Installed the Chrome browser and after signing in to Google, Chrome automatically added the Mail Checker. Initially, it worked. Nowadays, clicking on the Mail Checker icon, nothing happens. Can you investigate? I'm on macOSMonterey, Version 12.3.1, for the Mac mini (M1, 2020) Apple M1 Chip, 16 GB of memory.
  • (2022-04-15, v:4.4.0) Daniel V: Can't see button

  • (2022-04-12, v:4.4.0) Cory Kent: For Those Where Chrome Stopped Working
    I was having the problem of the extension not opening the new tab with gmail. I updated Chrome and it's working again. My Chrome is version 100.0.4896.88 (Official Build) That might help some of you as well, so I thought I'd post it here.

    When I close Chrome and re-open it, the mail checker extension starts working again, but after Chrome has been open for a few hours, it no longer updates the number of e-mails in the inbox and the button does not work when clicked. Other extensions are still working and clickable as normal.

  • (2021-12-23, v:4.4.0) Michael Bankoff: counting all gmail accounts
    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]
