Gmail (Developer App) Overview

With the Gmail (Developer App) API on Pipedream, you can automate a variety of email-related tasks, directly manipulating your Gmail account to streamline workflows. From sending emails programmatically to parsing new inbound messages for data extraction, the API allows for deep interaction with your Gmail inbox. Use cases include automating follow-ups, organizing your inbox with filters and labels, and synchronizing important email events with other services to act upon new information instantly.
