When someone creates a new Gmail account, not only do they get access to email, but they also get streamlined access to the rest of Google's apps. The Google+ social media account gets connected to the Gmail account, the videos people watch on YouTube get assigned to their Gmail account, Google Maps learns peoples' locations and makes them easily available through Gmail, Google Drive allows users to easily create and share documents through their Gmail accounts, and Google Play allows users to purchase music and other media using their Gmail accounts for confirmation.
