Gmail makes it easy to not only access your emails, but also connect to other Google services, such as Google Docs, Google Drive, Google Calendar, and so on. 

What’s even better is that you can perform actions, like adding an event to your Calendar or sharing a Google Doc, using your Gmail account.

But before you can do any of that, you need to log into Gmail — here’s how.

How to log into your Gmail account on a mobile device

On your phone, you’re usually automatically signed into Gmail. However, if you’ve logged out or deleted the app, here’s how to log back in.

1. Download and open the Gmail app on your iOS or Android device.

2. Tap the “Sign in” button at the bottom of your screen. If you already have an email account linked in the app and want to add another account, simply tap your profile icon in the top-right corner and then tap “Add another account.”
