Gmail API Integration

Our REST APIs let your app integrate with users' mail, calendars, contacts, and other Google Workspace data.

Flexible, RESTful access to Gmail features

The Gmail API is a RESTful API that can be used to access Gmail mailboxes and send mail. For most web applications (including mobile apps), the Gmail API is the best choice for authorized access to a user's Gmail data.

API Overview

The Gmail API gives you flexible, RESTful access to the user's inbox, with a natural interface to Threads, Messages, Labels, Drafts, History, and. Settings. From the modern language of your choice, your app can use the API to add Gmail features like:

  • Read messages from Gmail
  • Send email messages
  • Modify the labels applied to messages and threads
  • Search for specific messages and threads
  • Create filters to automatically label, forward, or archive messages
  • All you need to use the Gmail API is the client library for your choice of language and an app that can authenticate as a Gmail user.

Key resource types

The Gmail API provides several resource types:

  • Messages are immutable: they can only be created and deleted.
  • Labels serve as the primary means of categorizing and organizing messages and threads
  • Drafts represent unsent messages. The messages themselves cannot be modified once created, but the message contained within the draft may be replaced.
  • History is a collection of recently modified messages in chronological order.
  • Threads are collections of messages that represent a conversation.
  • Settings control how features of Gmail behave for a user. Settings are available for POP and IMAP access, email forwarding, filters, vacation auto-response, send-as aliases, signatures, delegates, and language.
