How to customize Gmail notifications in Android and iPhone

Sometimes you may notice an important message in your email in the Gmail application without receiving a notification of its arrival, it may be because Gmail did not classify this message as a priority, and did not send you a notification when it arrived, because the default settings for Gmail notifications are for priority messages.

But you can customize the Gmail app notifications on Android and iPhone phones to receive notifications of all incoming messages to your email, and we'll explain how:


How to customize Gmail app notifications for Android and iPhone:

There's a setting in the Gmail app that allows you to configure the types of emails that notify you when they arrive, as this setting provides three options: All, (High priority only), and None.

As mentioned earlier, the default setting allows Gmail to only notify you of high-priority emails, but this setting may cause you to not receive a notification about emails that Gmail failed to classify as high priority. If it's important for you not to miss a message that has reached your email, change the notification setting to All. To do this, follow these steps:

-Open the Gmail app on your iPhone or Android phone.
-Click the three-striped menu button on the upper-right corner of the page.

-Scroll to the bottom and click on the Settings option.

-Select the name of your Gmail account where you want to change your notification settings.
-Under the Notifications tab, an option called Email notifications appears.
-Click on this option and a pop-up window will appear with three options: All, High priority only, and None. And if you're using an iPhone, you'll notice an additional option that's Primary only.
-Click on the All option.

-After you turn this option on, you'll see more notifications coming from the Gmail app.

How to help Gmail identify high priority emails:

If you want to avoid the massive influx of email notifications that can occur after changing the notification setting to All, return the setting to the default High priority only, in which case you can tick the emails The task or messages from VIP contacts to indicate that they are featured or important. This will make Gmail more likely to notify you when messages similar to those important to you arrive. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Gmail app, and start browsing your emails to identify important messages or messages from important contacts.
  2. Star this important email message by clicking the empty star outline to the right of the email title.
  3. Keep scrolling through your account inbox and place a star next to all messages from important contacts who always need to receive notifications about incoming mail messages from.
Another way you can set some incoming messages as important in the Gmail app is to increase the likelihood of receiving notifications when similar emails arrive, and to use this method, follow these steps:
  1. Open the Gmail app, then select an email of the type you want to receive notifications about by tapping and holding it.
  2. Press the three-dot menu button on the upper right corner.
  3. You will see a menu with several options, click on the (Mark important) option.
When you search for emails to star or mark as important, you can narrow your search by section. Gmail divides emails into: Primary, Promotions, and Social. Your use of these sections will vary depending on the type of emails you receive.

You often don't need to go through the promotions section and mark them as important, because most of them are ads. Depending on your priorities, you may want to get notifications for certain emails categorized as social, for example, messages from social networks like LinkedIn.

Keep browsing your inbox to mark any messages in your email that you've missed notifications about in the past. Once you've marked it as important, Gmail will likely send you notifications when you receive similar emails without having to change the default notification setting to All.
