Get Email Notifications On Gmail For Android When Email Arrives

To check for new emails they have to refresh it every time new email arrives. The gmail for android has a sync feature which is known as ‘Auto sync’ which can be found in ‘Account and sync’ settings in android 2.3 gingerbread. Under ‘Account and sync’ settings there is another option called ‘Background data’ which allows android apps to sync and run in background.

But if your phone is running android 2.3 gingerbread then you have to enable background data and auto sync feature so that you can receive email notifications whenever email arrives in gmail app.
