Description

Gmail is an easy to use email app that saves you time and keeps your messages safe. Get your messages instantly via push notifications, read and respond online & offline, and find any message quickly.
With the Gmail app you get:
• An organized inbox - Social and promotional messages are sorted into categories so you can read messages from friends and family first.
• Less spam - Gmail blocks spam before it hits your inbox to keep your account safe and clutter free.
• 15GB of free storage - You won’t need to delete messages to save space.
• Multiple account support - Use both Gmail and non-Gmail addresses (Outlook.com, Yahoo Mail, or any other IMAP/POP email) right from the app.

This is my new mail app for now but can't say am a big time fan. Even when I set up notifications it doesn't happen. But most importantly i wish they would categorise all unread mail into one folder, it will make life much easier. Full Review

Great way to email once you learn how to use it. After using Hotmail for years, Gmail seemed so different that I wasn't willing to learn how to use it. Once I started though, I quickly decided to make Gmail my main email. The only thing I miss from Hotmail is the amount of unread Gmails displayed on icon. Sometimes I forget to go back and look for new gmail that I moved off cell phone drop down menu. Gmail seems to be one of the few communication apps that doesn't display the number of pending messages on icon like Hotmail, Facebook, Messenger, and Text to name a few. I do recommend Gmail and encourage everyone to give it a try. Full Review

The file attachment sucks. I can only select the photos/documents from a few folders from my phone. That really cause much inconvenience when I try to attach some files in other folders. For example, some editor app saves the documents in their own File path. Those doc can never be found in the Gmail app. File attachment is the most fundamental feature of email and yet it sucks. This app really disappoint me so much. Full Review

I was really looking forward to using this app with my new Pixel 2 XL. Unfortunately it does not sync IMAP folders. I had been using the Outlook mail app with my Pixel XL which worked very well. Unfortunately I have had to go back to Outlook. I hope GMAIL fixes this issue. For 3 days I have been running simultaneously Gmail and Outlook with all of the same settings and Gmail does not sync read mail or mail which has been moved to a folder. GMAIL PLEASE fix this issue!!!! Full Review

Re-reviewing for a newer device... still the most frustrating, least functional email app I've used. Impossible to use select buttons without accidentally opening every other message. It takes 40 clicks to delete 10 spam emails. Talk about inefficient. I thought technology was supposed to increase quality of life by decreasing wasted time. Not with this app. I'm looking for somebody new, don't try to change my mind about it. Peazy. Full Review

This app seriously lacks features that could be so useful. Like a sweep option to delete emails from the same sender or a select all option because I can't go through a whole folder of 500 emails to delete them. Seriously do a revamp on the UI and it's features and maybe I'll give an additional star. Full Review

Ok so please please add a feature to where you can just "select all" to delete mail because I just spent 10 minutes clicking on 800 different emails to delete them and then the app glitched and deselected all of them. Other than that the app is great but I beg you to add that feature. Full Review

Useful is not a term I would use to describe this app. It is far removed from consideration as the best email app. POP3 and IMAP accounts fail to sync on WiFi. Notifications fail to notify. Sending gets stuck in Queued status until it gets manually pushed out but not on WiFi 'cus POP3 and IMAP doesn't work on WiFi. Play Services still demands Body Sensors, Camera, Location, Microphone, Phone, SMS, "use fingerprint hardware" and tons of "Other app capabilities" that are highly intrusive and totally over the top.

This app is a black stain on Google. Worst app. We don't receive notifications and most of the tines even after receiving the mail, when we open it all we can see is what we had sent in the past and not what we've received. It takes several days to actually be able to read say receive the mail. disgusted. Full Review

Deleted emails keep going back into the inbox as new emails. I do not receive notifications for long periods of time, and then weeks later I'm spamed with loads of late email notifications including emails I had already deleted. There is noo way to select all and delete either. Basic features that should not be missing or not working. Full Review

Sometimes I never get any notifications on new emails although I have already set the notifications to "on". Sometimes I opened the app, refresh it and then only realized that I have new email(s) pending for me since a few hours ago...pls improve on this. Full Review

12/2017: widget options are awful, ugly. Not even option to change color. 4/2017: Really wish it had the functionality of desktop. Wish I could CLICK on a label to see all mail w/ label (presently, clicking opens up Label Selections menu, not what I want! ). Full Review

Recent update has fixed the Widget issue. Back to 4 stars. Took a while but Google got there in the end. ----------------------------------------------------------- Yesterday's update didn't fix the widget issue. Still blank when phone switched on and requiring set up. Every day & it's getting annoying. Also still can't open a mail from the widget. ---------------------------------------------------- Since today's update it is not possible to open an email directly from the 3×3 widget. I tried switching phone off & on but then the widget was blank & requesting set up (as it did after update). After set up, open email issue remains. Full Review

Why the client does not update my email and do not get any notifications, I must manually update to check if there are any new mails. I've got Mac and iPad and they work perfectly but no Gmail. I did everything in settings to make it work well but nothing helps. What a peace of rubbish I'm surprised to see so high rationgs Full Review

Mike, Moto e running 6 Moto e running 5.1 Sony Tablet S running 4.0.3 This app does work for me, I'm using it to run 3 email accounts. No problems experienced. I find conversation view horrible, not a nice way to read your mail, so I've turned it off. I think the app is working faster now, in that it opens things quicker when I change mail boxes.

UPDATE 12/2017: Still exactly as terrible as nearly a year ago. I've duplicated my Gmail inbox in the native Samsung client, and it sends notifications HOURS before this awful app. [--Now completely unreliable. Sometimes don't receive emails until the next day. Unacceptable garbage until fixed.] Full Review

I don't use this mailbox much but decided to try and clean it up today. How can a big company like Google get a mail client so wrong. There is absolutely no option to select all. Therefore I have to go through 1000's of emails deleting them 1 by 1. Not likely, I'll just disable the app (can't uninstall as it's forced on me just like Google: photos, documents, now, drive etc) and never use it. Full Review

I really enjoy being able to have all my emails in the same place and being able to sort through them all. All the features work very well and provide a smooth user experience and interface. The only thing is that I wish I could mark emails as read from the notification as sometimes the snippet of the email is enough for me to understand the email. Full Review

I have never, ever had a problem with Gmail until now, I love all of Google and always have. But suddenly for a week I wasn't receiving any emails and my email was not syncing at all. So I deleted my cache and some apps, thinking it may be a storage issue, and now I can receive my emails again but I'm getting notifications of emails from 1 and 2 years ago! Just blowing up my phone and wasting my time. Please tell me how you can help!? Full Review

Worse app for mail ever, I don't use it an I find it hard to understand the email are not in a chronological order, you don't see the text, you can't multiple select and delete.. I would expect something better from Google to be honest. As well Google + is useless no one wants it and it always comes up when you register a new account, and of course if you use android you must have a Google account. Another thing is that Google login in the browser (even if not Google) stays log on after closing it, even if you you don't want to. The rest of the emails and accounts in the world they ask you first. So I find it a bit illicit as well Full Review

Great interface! But push notifications are not working at all. Therefore a good interface is useless if you keep missing the emails because the push notifications are not working. I have to go into my app every now and then to see if I got any new emails. Full Review

Stop resend information exact same email after I delete it. This thing sends email then even in forced to open app to delete, I get a notification soon as I exit with the exact same emails I just deleted 2 seconds ago. I get several emails notifications once I wake the phone & I know it's costing me money (fcc vote 12/14) just to send same mails over & over Gmail has gotten worse & worser over past updates, always saying improvements but it's always getting harder to use. Only reason I even got was cause of Android phone store & it keeps all my purchased apps locked to my phone majority of emails come from Yahoo but Android client refuses to operate with my Yahoo account and Yahoo app only does Yahoo & I couldn't figure out plus the dumb ads . Gmail is dumb (on my phone basically) & getting on my nerves for past 2 years Full Review

When you search history such as a recently deleted message, it does NOT show up in your trash folder, only older ones do. After all this time, I would have thought that Google would have made gmail blatantly obvious and easy to organize; incoming emails going to designated folders, etc. It's not nearly as user friendly as I would have imagined and I'm pretty savvy with tech. It's 2018 Google. Get with it, instead of spreading yourselves too thin and manipulating search results because they don't agree with your Leftist ideology. Full Review
