Gmail is the most popular email service on the planet. Though it rarely happens, the sheer number of Gmail users has ensured that technical issues do arise from time to time. Getting technical support from Google for your Gmail account is relatively simple. Google has quite a comprehensive list of common topics and problems faced by users of any of their services. Most technical issues people have can be solved by visiting this list and following the instructions provided. However, if your problem goes far and above what the list covers, you can contact Google directly. There are two ways in which you can get technical support for your Gmail account:
Use Google Support
Contact Google Directly
Google does not have a phone number so the best way to contact them directly is through their online Help Desk. Reaching out to Google through this avenue should be for complex issues that are not urgent. The reason is because it takes Google an average of 51 hours to fix an issue with your Gmail account. You can find the Help Desk contact at GetHuman.
If you use a non-pixel model of Android, there is a list of support numbers that you can dial sing the following steps:

You can also get technical support for your Gmail account from online forums. However, beware of scam numbers posing as Google support agents. Only call a number listed on a Google site.
If all else fails, the last option is to send snail mail to 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043. However, Google will probably not respond to a query sent in this manner.
