How-To: Add Google-based E-mail to your Phone


Many companies trust their e-mail backend in the hands of Google and choose to host their e-mail services with Google Apps for Work (formerly Google Apps). If you log into your company e-mail on the web and it looks exactly like Gmail with your company logo in the top left-hand corner, your company may host their e-mail service with Google too. Adding your e-mail account to your phone is easy and these instructions will help guide you through the process.



To use the native Google Apps mail, contacts, and calendar apps on your Android, you need to sign in to your Google Apps account. Instructions below are for users with a Nexus or Google Play edition device running Android 4.2 or higher. If you're using a different device, your setup instructions may vary. You only have to do this once:

  1. Touch the Settings > Add account > Google to add your Google Apps account.
  2. Select Existing and enter your full Google Apps email address as your username and enter your password.
  3. Touch OK to agree to the Terms of Service. The device will sign in to your domain. This process may take a few minutes.
  4. You may be presented with additional steps giving you the option to join Google+, opt in to Google Play communications, or set up a credit card to purchase Google Play media. You can choose to set these up or touch Not now.
  5. After completing these steps, you should see Account sign-in successful. You can choose which services you want to sync to the device. For example if you only want to sync your e-mail make sure that all other boxes are not checked.

That's it! You can now use Google Apps from your Android. Just launch Gmail, Google Calendar, or whichever app you want to use.


  1. Download Gmail for iOS for free from the Apple's Apps store.
    Gmail - email from Google
  2. When setting up the app enter your full company e-mail address and enter your password.
