In this tutorial, I will explain a simple method using which you will be able to see the total number of words in Gmail emails which you have composed. Actually, there is a free Chrome extension named “TinyMails” which integrates with Gmail (web version) to help you see the number of words in an email. It can count and display the number of words of the emails while you’re composing them. In addition to that, it also displays an estimation of the reading time for each email which you compose.
Unfortunately, TinyMails can’t show the number of words in the emails which you have received. But, there is another Chrome extension called “Word Count Tool” that can be used to see the number of words in the received emails.

Now, when the compose window appears, you will see a word count section at the bottom of the window with “0 words – 0 sec to read” written on it. This is where TinyMails will show you the number of words in an email.
Step 3: To see the number of words in an email, you don’t need to configure anything manually. When you type anything in the email body, TinyMails will automatically count the words and shows the total number of words in real-time on the word count section.
Apart from showing you the total number of words in a composed email, it will also calculate and display an estimated reading time of the email. You will see the estimated reading time on the right of the word count.
