Google introduced a new feature called Gmailify. With the help of this new feature, non-Gmail users like Yahoo Mail users or Hotmail users or Outlook.com users are allowed to enjoy the top-class features of Gmail. So in short you can enjoy the best features of Gmail without having the tail of @gmail.com with your e-mail id.
How to Avail the New Feature of Gmailify
Inorder to avail the services of Gmailify, you may have to follow the below given steps.
- Open the Gmail App in your smartphone.
- Then open the Settings Menu of the application.
- There you have to choose the respective non-Gmail account that you would like to link with Gmail App and tap on Link Account
- Now you have to Sign-in to your non-Gmail Account.
- There you have to enable the option of Gmailify.
At certain times if you feel like disabling the option of Gmailify, you can do the same by disabling the option of Gmailify. This process will work both in Android application as well as on the web based application of mail.google.com also.
Google’s Gmail is famous for safety and security. With the help of Gmailify other email users can avail these features. Gmailify allows you have the option of spam protection on the incoming emails. In addition, users are also allowed to organize emails based on their nature as Primary, Social and Promotions. Also you are allowed to search on your non-Gmail accounts using advanced search operators. Gmailify also allows you to get better notifications on your smartphone. This will also display your travel and hotel reservations automatically on Google Now.
Google is not the only one providing this non-account support. There are other service providers in the line of Google. For instance Yahoo launched its mobile app where you can access and organize your Gmail Account. There you are also allowed to enjoy Yahoo’s special features like Smart Contacts and Password-Free Sign-in. It is quite coincidence that Gmailify was launched on the same day on which Microsoft is allowing Outlook.com out of its Preview.
Initially Gmailify is compatible with Yahoo and Microsoft’s Hotmail or Outlook. But Google made it clear that in due course they will launch versions which would support more email service providers in its near future.
