How To Fix Gmail Not Syncing On Android?

Gmail might not be synchronizing on your TECNO or Infinix phones. You might not have the ability to open, read, or send emails. This can be very frustrating, especially if you cannot send, receive, and open your work email. It's something you can fix quickly. This article will show you how to fix Gmail not syncing with your TECNO and Infinix devices, itel and all Android devices.

1. Gmail App Update

We recommend that you use the most current version of Gmail to ensure you are free from bugs and receive the latest bug fixes. It can be downloaded from the Play Store for free. If the app is out of date, Gmail may have problems synching your emails. You can fix this by updating your Gmail app.

  1. Start the Play Store on your TECNO/Infinix device.
  2. Use the search bar to search for Gmail.
  3. Click on it. To get the most recent version, tap the Updatebutton.

2. Restart your device

It's quite simple, right? It works in most cases. To fix Gmail not syncing, reboot your device. The problem could be caused by a bug in the system that can usually be fixed by rebooting your device. To test if the problem is resolved, restart your device.

3. Make sure to check the Gmail Sync settings

If Gmail doesn't sync across devices, check the sync settings in Gmail and make sure you have turned them on. This should be turned on by default. However, it is possible for something to happen. It could have been accidentally turned off. It could have been caused by an unidentified bug in the app. When it happens, your Gmail account will not sync and you won't be able to receive new mails. You can re-enable your Gmail account in this case by following these steps:

  • The Gmailapp is open
  • Tap the side-menu button in the upper-left corner.
  • Scroll to the bottom and tap Settings
  • Choose your account.
  • Scroll down to the bottom. Scroll to the bottom.

4. Check your device's account sync settings

Importantly, make sure you enable automatic synchronization of Gmail in your system account settings. Gmail will not synchronize if you don't enable automatic synchronization for Gmail in the system account settings. After enabling Sync Gmail in the Gmail App, you should verify this setting. Here's how:

5. Make sure you have an internet connection that works

This is something we should have said earlier. However, it's not too late. An active internet connection is required before Gmail can send, read, and even open any email from your devices. To confirm that your internet connection is active, you can perform a quick network test using your browser. To check if the website loads, open it. If it doesn’t load, you need to troubleshoot your network and not Gmail.

6. Free up storage space!

Google says that syncing will not work if your phone or tablet runs out of storage. If your phone storage is getting too low, you can free it up to make sure everything is working properly. Uninstall any apps that you don't use; delete files downloaded, installation packages and movies that you've seen.

You might also want to first check your storage before you take action.

  • Open the Settingsapp
  • Tap Storage
  • To view storage usage, click Internal shared space

7. Reset your Gmail app

If none of the above solutions worked, then we recommend that you reset your Gmail app - basically, by clearing all cache and data.

Be aware that the Gmail app reset may result in your drafts, signatures, and custom notification settings being cleared. After resolving the problem, you can set them back up again. The good news is that most Gmail apps can be reset. It's worth trying:

  • Open the Settings section of your device.
  • Tap Apps and Notifications,followed . See all apps
  • Open Gmail from the list.
  • Click on Storage and cache.
