Whoops! Gmail wants Android users to install its iOS app
You read it right. Of late, Gmail pushed an advertisement to some of its Android and Web users flaunting the “smarter, faster and safer email service” it provides on iPhone. What a blooper.
Looks like, in desperation to attract more customers, marketing is getting on the company’s head. Interestingly, they were encouraging its existing Android and Web users to fall for the service it provides on iPhone. Guess, the company is expecting too much from its poor users.
I'm using Chrome on the desktop and iOS on the mobile. Here's a grab of the text. Thanks. pic.twitter.com/1QQmnsoKMv

Jokes apart, when the issue was pointed by some users on Twitter, the team acknowledged that it was done by mistake. Meanwhile, the gaffe was savored by many on social media.
Whoops! Looks like we accidentally showed some users a promotion about the latest iOS Gmail app. It's resolved now. Sorry for the mix up!
