How to know if an email has been read in Gmail

Here are the options available to find out if an email you have sent in Gmail has been read.

Gmail is one of the main managers that leads the ranking of email platforms. Its versatility on mobile devices and computers and its simple interface for receiving and sending emails are the key to its success. If you use this platform you may have wondered how to know if an email has been read in Gmail.

When we send an email it may happen that it has high importance or that we need a quick response to the issue we are dealing with and we need to know if the recipient has read the email.

Unfortunately, Gmail has no automatic native way of knowing whether or not an email has been read when it is sent unless the recipient replies. The only option to know if the recipient has received our message and has also read it is to install an extension in the web browser.
