Before you begin, update the Gmail app to the latest version:

Step 1 Open the Gmail app.

Tap the menu icon in the upper left corner > Settings > Add account > Exchange and Office 365.

Important: Do NOT choose "Outlook, Hotmail, and Live" unless you want to sync email only and not calendar/contacts.

If you don't see this message and emails are syncing, skip this step.
