Gmail is used by more than 1.5 billion people and counting, making it by far the most popular email platform on the planet. From Gmail’s impressive AI auto-response to the platform’s seamless integration with its other products, it is easy to see why Google’s sleek email manager is such a hit. Many of us have more than one email address and Gmail offers an easy way of combining them under one account.
Partitioning private and work email accounts is a common occurrence and Gmail offers a convenient way of having them in one place.
This allows users to check their work account without the bother of signing in every time.
Adding an account to your Gmail is incredibly intuitive and simple to do.
