Turn Notifications for Every Message Received On and Off in Gmail on HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Crystal, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to turn on and off the option to receive a notification for every new message in the Primary inbox in the Gmail application on an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on top of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated we will see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen up.
Once the phone has been unlocked we will see the home screen, and at the bottom we will see 5 icons. We now need to open the application folder.
We can do that by tapping the icon in the middle, at the bottom of the screen.
There is a grid of white dots. This is the icon for the applications folder.
Now that the folder has been opened, we need to find and tap the Gmail application.
There is a Gmail icon, which is an envelope with a red 'M', and underneath it says the word "Gmail". Your application may be in a different location, so look for the icon in your folder. We now need to find the settings menu.
To do that, we need to tap the icon in the top left-hand corner.
There are 3 horizontal lines. This will open up a menu.
Scroll down and tap on "Settings".
Tap on the middle option, which will be the email address set up with the application.
In this example, it's "email@example.com". This will open our account options.
We want to tap on "Inbox sound & vibrate".
This option is only for the Primary inbox. Under "Inbox categories", we can see 3 categories, "Primary", "Social" and "Promotions". We can edit the notification options for these other categories in another section. Gmail actually calls them 'labels' which can be confusing, because they call them 'categories' in this section.
At the bottom, we have this option "Notify for every message".
Underneath it says "Play sound/vibrate when each new message arrives". We can see it is currently off because the box is empty. If we do want to receive a notification for every message, we can turn it on by pressing down on the box.
The box will then be blue with a white check mark inside, indicating that this option has been turned on.
We will receive a notification for each new message that arrives in the Primary Gmail inbox. To turn it off, press down on the box again.
The box will then be empty again, indicating that the option has been turned off.
This concludes the tutorial on how to turn on or off the option to receive a notification for every new message in the Primary inbox in Gmail on the HTC One M8.
