One of the ways to use Gmail on a Samsung Galaxy S is by using the Gmail application. However, if you prefer to use the built-in Samsung messaging app, you can still add your Gmail account to it. Here’s how:
First, swipe down from the top of the screen and tap on the Settings icon. Scroll down and tap on Cloud and accounts, then tap on Accounts. From there, tap on Add account, and select Google.
You will be prompted to enter your account information. Fill in the account name and password, and tap on the Next button. You may receive a notification for verification, so just wait for it to arrive. Once you receive the verification, select it.
After entering the verification code, you can tap on Next and then tap on Accept. You can then scroll down and tap on Next again. The account will be added to your Google accounts.
Now, if you want to access your Gmail through the messaging app, go back to the Apps and launch the Email app. Follow the on-screen instructions to set up your account. Tap on the Settings icon, then tap on Add account. You will be taken to the account setup screen.
Tap on Add a new account and enter your email address. Then, select the account type. If you choose Gmail, it will be easier as the necessary details will already be filled in by Samsung. You can also choose to add a new account using the POP3 method.
Once you’ve selected the account type, tap on Continue. You may be asked to authorize the app or enter your account details. Follow the prompts to complete the setup.
Now, your Gmail account will be synchronized with the messaging app. You can access your emails by opening the app and checking your inbox.
