This article shows you how to set up your email account on the Gmail app for Android OS.

Pro Tip: Before you set up your email on your android device, check out our professional email and productivity plans — Google Workspace. You’ll enjoy a domain-matching email address and a robust set of tools and applications to help you run your business more efficiently. And you can access your email from any device too.



Add a New Email Account

  1. Open the Gmail app and navigate to the Settings section.
  2. Tap Add account.
  3. Tap Personal (IMAP/POP) and then Next.
  4. Enter your full email address and tap Next.
  5. Choose the type of email account you will be using.
    • POP3 will download the emails from the server and store them on your phone.
    • IMAP will store the emails on the server and show a cached copy on your phone. IMAP is best for most cases.
    • Exchange is not supported because it requires a Microsoft Exchange server.
  6. Enter the password for your email address and tap Next.

Incoming Server Settings
