Gmail sync android settings

Posted on 03.06.2018 by Beth
The other email accounts have settings for sync frequency and are easy to manage but I cannot find any way to control the frequency of gmail syncing. Even if sync is already on, try turning it on and off a few times.

All I can figure out is that the sync is either auto on or off.

On your mobile device, open Settings. If the Peak schedule option is available just leave it default. Check your phone or tablet settings. Use Sync schedule to choose the frequency you want your app to check for new emails. Depending on your sync settings, the Gmail app might not be checking for new mail.
It is best if you check the Sync email and Notify options. On the left, tap Menu Settings. Make sure Sync Gmail is checked.
