  • Invisible message text

    By docenglish
    All of a sudden, I can no longer see the text of messages in the Gmail app on my phone. I have to open the default mail app and/or go to Chrome and open up Gmail there to see message text. Not sure what’s going on here,but the Help forums aren’t that helpful.
  • Email accounts overlapping???

    By Performing arts teacher
    I have 2 gmail accounts, one business and one personal, when I view either account through the app my messages are mixed up between my accounts. I am see my personal messages mixed in with my business account and my business messages mixed in with my personal account. It’s very confusing, please fix!!
  • Keep Up the Great Work

    By uncletimothy
    This app is easy to use and provides the options I need the most. I especially like how easy it is to switch from all inboxes for all accounts (work, personal, and family members') to individual inboxes for each account. Your swipe to delete or move setting is perfect for me. The iPhone mail app attempts to do that, but too often mixes up accounts when you move emails. Your's simplifies the process without errors. The Gmalify option has been useful as well, allowing me to connect a rarely used personal Yahoo email account to my main personal Gmail account. I read somewhere that you will be providing even greater options sometime in July. I'm looking forward to that, and hope it includes a readable dark mode. Thanks!
  • Doesn’t play well with Apple 。

  • Managing my emails is a mess!

    By Nate in MI
    Really annoying to not be able to delete multiple emails is sub folders! Now I have hundreds of unread emails unless I log in from a computer. Please bring back inbox. It was so much better.
  • Gmail

    By oplm76
    I’m on a phone nots multi screen computer worthless 2 step verification may as well delete the app
  • Unreliable Connectivity with Drive

    By Still Wild Stallion
    Previous versions would show your files on Drive and make attaching very easy. Now, Gmail app shows “No files,” making you use the Drive app to copy/paste links. Waste of time, Google. Waste of time.

    In my opinion Gmail is loads better than yahoo and others
  • ICS file support?

    By tvieso
    Gmail works well. Does what I need it to do for the most part, except for integrating ICS files with the native calendar app on iOS. Please add support for this.

  • Highlighting

    By Gazorpazorp57
    Gmail works for most of my simple needs, but dang, the whole trying to scroll and highlight something to cut and paste is a pain in the butt. I don’t know if this is an Apple iOS issue or gmail, but I figured this was the place to share it.
  • Still doesn’t support proper multitasking

    By GreySim
    Somehow STILL doesn’t support split views. Overall, the new design feels like one step forward, one step backward, and several steps missed.
  • WTH Happened?

    By Seaside Sinderella
    My 3 email addresses are all lumped together. I use one for a home based biz, one for grand baby gifts and sale items and the 3rd is for me. Now their all lumped together and I have no way to keep tell them apart unless I click the drop down arrow on each individual email. How do I make this downgrade stop???

  • Make text suggestions go away

    By WittyAspie
    Do away with the text suggestions while typing an email or at least make them optional. There are few things more annoying than an app trying to guess what I want to say. I can speak for myself thank you very much.
  • Don’t waste your time

    By 14625536456
    I try to email people and before it worked then suddenly it keeps saying that “Email sent failed” it annoys the crap outta me!! Fix your crap Gmail!!
  • Text barely readable

    By 不懂起名的人
    Font family of choose is terrible. Not suitable for reading. No customization over font family, weight, or size.
  • Thank you for finally getting rid of conversation mode

    By Gccvhhfdkkfghh
    You should fire the person who said that was a must have feature and promote the person who advocated for the option to turn off.

    By lxfxglxpyfguotdkzhuuuu
    Keep up the great work this app is really easy to use
  • I can see my emails which are not sent to that email

    By B.A Kirk
    I can an Email for my other accounts on an account which isn’t sent to.
  • Can’t attach files from my folders

    By AJ from SJ
    I don’t know if this is because of a recent update but I am unable to attach any of my PDFs and other files directly from my phones folders. I can only send them via google drive link. Plus I hate the sponsored ad I get from this. Which is why I use a third part email client now for my personal gmail. For work I think gmail is okay.
  • Gmail

    Big fan of gmail!
  • Combined inbox

    By EricyWaters
    I used to love the gmail app but I use it for multiple gmail accounts and it is no longer possible to view separate inboxes for separate accounts and this makes it very unpleasant to use
  • Limited functionality

    By Ssully9924
    I use my iPad and phone predominately for my work as I am constantly on the go. I do not understand why there is no way to use the app to edit the labels! I can only do this on my desktop and it severely hinders me since I rarely have access to that. I want to be able to nest labels, to move files around the labels, etc. Please fix this!
  • Absolutely agree

    By MusesMaker
    The previous comment sums it up entirely for me, including why I won’t use it.
  • Inbox categories

    By Petey pete 9
    Bring back the inbox categories with promotional and social. Now I see everything and it’s hard to organize my email.
  • Last month I got flooded with spam

    By dontcareever
    Seriously Gmail, what's up with all the spam recently?
  • Change email address

    By nedgmail
    I have been hacked into and want to discontinue my present email and make a new gmail account.
  • Prefer Inbox by Google

    By Samuel ace
    I prefer Inbox over Gmail. I could control what emails I would get incoming notifications about. Inbox had a cleaner more modern look. It was more organized and user friendly. Please bring back Inbox.
  • Font size

    By soundneedle
    Font size is absurdly small. Not going to change a system wide setting just for this dumb app. No issues with any other iOS app.
  • MAD

    Hot mail is BETTER 🙄🙄🙄
  • Signature placement useless

    By Shanteecan
    Please put the signature where it belongs. It does no good being at the very bottom of the thread.
  • Do they even test it?

    By Jeff3759944
    How does this update even get a pass from quality control? Do they even test it? This latest update broke the top bar. If you select multiple emails and try to delete, nothing happens. Those top buttons quit working. This bug appeared in a version a few years ago, and now its back. Who the hell do you have programming this crap? You dont even test basic features. Ridiculous.
  • New update junked up my inbox

    By MP13RB
    What happened to “primary”, “promotions”, “social”, etc?? Now it’s just “inbox” (or worse, “all inboxes”, and it’s 90% promotional junk. It’s nearly impossible to find legit emails. All of my “starred” messages disappeared. And all of my “important” (the only self generated category you still have) all show as unread. (When they are all old and HAVE been read). It’s a total cluster.
  • Randomly removes my accounts

    By ganjanessa
    Only on Gmail my email accounts get removed on my own without any warning. I have to manually check if it's still there and sometimes Gmail just signs out of them or removed them altogether. WHY!!! Why!!! Seriously why gmail
  • Horrible functionality compared to native email app

    By M_J_S
    I can’t imagine why someone would use this over the native iPhone mail app. The interface is horrible and confusing when trying to reply. Just now half the screen was cut-off so buggy too. What is the upside? I only use it for a separate business email.
  • Select All or Delete All, better management needed

    By F150georgia
    I do not have a computer, iPhone only. Please allow access to select all & trash all, empty trash, Empty Social, etc. Selecting one email at a time is archaic. Yahoo mail is easily managed.
  • All good features removed yesterday

    By r0han26
    Mark as Read from the lockscreen is removed for no good reason. Crappy app. Google is supposed to be good, but this app indicates otherwise.
  • Chinese Gmail?

    By Evan Lei
    I love this app, but why I can’t send emails or receive emails in China?
  • Please Add a Dark Mode

    By ThunderbirdGaming
    Works fine for my inbox needs. The bright UI is annoying, add a dark mode please
  • Mixes email up from different accounts

    By floss3853
    Google please fix: I have multiple accounts that I would like to view separately. The last couple of updates now combine my accounts into one screen. This happens on the web as well. This is a privacy issue because some of my accounts are shared with staff so now they are seeing my personal emails.
  • Incomprehensibly limited functionality.

    By M.J. Ocasio
    I’d think that Google was purposefully hobbling apps on iOS so as to take a jab at Apple users, but this is the same app that my partner uses on her Android phone and it works just as poorly there. I’ll highlight how frustrating this app is with one simple example. It’s been years since Apple introduced multitasking and split screen view on iOS. Google Docs, Sheets, and Drive support split screen, why doesn’t Gmail? It isn’t a difficult thing to implement, and it isn’t like Google doesn’t have the resources. For all the money they make from harvesting our data through our gmail accounts, the least they could do is allow us to share the screen. Simply unforgivable in this day and age.
  • Not Inbox

    By RafaelxRafael
    I don’t know what this crap is. Inbox was so much better.
  • Please Update

    By Lulovesu
    This needs a select all function, no email app is completed without the select all function.
  • New email

    By masretired
    I hate the new email. It didn’t transfer all my information over, and it’s more difficult to navigate!😝😝
  • Will Not Load

    By joe.kot
    I have deleted and reinstall. I have done a hard reset. Nothing works. I get a “something went wrong, try again later error”.
  • Various shortcomings.

    By squalamack
    One of the biggest problems is the lack of an Apple Watch app. Google and Apple won’t play nice over push email on the built-in app (which works fine with Fastmail and Outlook—the lack of push is something Google can easily fix, but wont.). This means that the Google-provided app should work at least as well and offer the same functionality as the Apple app. But it does not. The app is missing split-screen support for iPads, and drag and drop. I can only send email from my gmail address, not my aliases, using the share sheet. Very annoying! This has been the case for years and Google appears to be uninterested in fixing it. Notifications, also, should always have both an archive and a delete button. Not either/or. Anyway, Google more or less tries to force you to using its app because it doesn’t support standard features like push and because of its weird tagging system. But it can’t even bother to make that app minimally competent. I recommend not using Gmail at all.
