8 Gmail mobile app tricks for iOS and Android

Ben Patterson | March 19, 2015
There's more to the recently revamped Gmail app than just checking your Gmail inbox. Manage threads, sync subfolders, get notifications and more.

Next, open the Gmail app, compose a new message or reply to an existing one, tap the Attach button (it looks like a paperclip), then tap Insert from Drive.

Find the file you want to send, tap it, then tap the Select button (for Android) or the curved arrow (on iOS).

Check a non-Gmail account (Android)
Nope, Gmail isn't just for Gmail any more. The latest version of the Gmail app for Android lets you add non-Gmail email accounts, such as Yahoo Mail, Outlook, or any account that supports the POP or IMAP email protocols.

Just tap the menu button in the top-left corner of your inbox, tap your email address, tap Add account, select Personal (IMAP/POP), then tap OK.

For popular email services like Yahoo and Outlook, Gmail should be able to guide you through the setup process using nothing but your email account and password. Otherwise, you may need to know some other information, such as your email provider's POP and IMAP settings. For those details, check your provider's Help pages.
