Similar to that Twitter’s blue check mark, Google has also introduced a blue check mark verification feature on its Gmail(Google Workspace) platform for interested admins. The new feature is based on the BIMI (Brand Indicators for Message Identification) feature introduced back in 2021, which required senders to verify their brand logo in order to display it as the avatar.

With the new update on Gmail, users will now start to see blue check marks at the right of the sender’s name who has verified their account and brand logo with BIMI. Google has also shared an image representation of how it will look which is given below for reference.

This new feature will help Gmail users to identify genuine senders and prevent them from falling into the traps of imposters and other spam senders. On hovering over the blue check mark, Gmail or Workspace users(including legacy G Suite users) will also find the message stating that the sender’s email and the logo used in the profile picture have been verified and the sender is a legitimate or genuine sender.

Interested admins can verify their Google accounts by adopting DMARC and then getting a Verified Mark Certificate(VMC) from authorities like Entrust or DigiCert in order to get the blue check mark. Currently, there is no end-user setting for this feature.

Google will roll out the new update to its Gmail or Google Workspace platform starting from the 3rd of May, 2023, and is to complete its full rollout within 3 days.
