    Hi,

    I'm not getting Gmail notifications on the mail default app. It syncs when I open, but not automatically.

    Please help.

    Regards,

    Pedro.

    Edit: Thanks! It was set to "automatically". I changed it to 15 minutes. I'm editing the thread because I don't know how to mark as answered.

    I don’t push email is supported for Gmail via the native Mail app, but the official Gmail app supports it.

    Gmail doesn't push. Gmail uses Fetch on the stock Mail app. You can set it to every 15 minutes. Go to settings > Mail> Accounts > scroll down to Fetch new data > scroll down to Fetch and set as desired.


    If you want push notifications with your Gmail, you can use the Gmail app. Google took away push for the stock Mail app, but has it on their Gmail app.

    The reason you only see it when you open it, is you probably have Fetch set to manually.

    One reason why I keep the Gmail App running to get true push for call activations. Then if needed I still have access via native mail app later on.

    Yes, I agree - use the Gmail app (or the InBox app.) Both are great for instant Gmail notifications. I have my gmail account in the stock mail app, but that's just so I can do things like delete individual replies in an email thread.

    Well done figuring it out. Sometimes poking around in the settings is the best way to fix a problem

    Push works on iOS, just not for Gmail in the stock Mail app. Google did it, not Apple.

    Font size used for GMail app is too small. I use Outlook for iOS. All of my email accounts including 2 gmails push just fine.

    My experience with Outlook push notifications is not as good as yours. At times it goes hours without notifying me of new messages in my outlook.com account. In fact, I had to add that account to the stock mail app just to make sure that I received push notifications.

    And the Gmail (and InBox) font size is fine with me.
