  • Google Sync - Now with PUSH GMAIL support.
    Today, Google has finally answered the call of pretty much everyone who has an iPhone and a Gmail account. Google Sync, a free service from Google which allows you to push Calendar and Contacts over the air now finally supports Gmail.

    Earlier this year, we launched Google Sync which allows you to synchronize your Gmail Contacts and Google Calendar with your iPhone, Windows Mobile, and S60 devices. Today, we're adding Gmail support to Google Sync for iPhone, iPod Touch and Windows Mobile devices.

    Using Google Sync, you can now get your Gmail messages pushed directly to your phone. Having an over-the-air, always-on connection means that your inbox is up to date, no matter where you are or what you're doing. Sync works with your phone's native email application so there's no additional software needed. Only interested in syncing your Gmail, but not your Calendar? Google Sync allows you to sync just your Contacts, Calendar, or Gmail, or any combination of the three.


    To try Google Sync, visit m.google.com/sync from your computer. If you're already using Google Sync, learn how to enable Gmail sync. Since push Gmail has been a popular request on our Product Ideas page and Help Forum, we look forward to hearing your feedback, so drop us a line and let us know how it's working or what you'd like to see next.

    Update at 8:20am: We jumped the gun on this post. The new feature should be rolling out in a few minutes.
    If you're already using Google Sync, then enabling Gmail support is as easy and going to you mail settings, deleting the IMAP gmail account and enabling Mail under Google Sync.

    So there you have it! Now there's no longer a need to buy a stupid app that let's you know when you have mail or setting up complicated growl services.

      Their servers caught up. I get push notification with 10-15 seconds now. I still use this in combination with PushMail so I get the pop-up notification. Since it's an app I already paid for no harm in "double" notification.

      My question is since our phones can only handle one exchange server, and I have linked 3 other gmail accounts to the exchange one, why am I not getting push for the linked accounts?
