Gmail has long supported the ability of having multiple accounts under the same app, meaning that you can check emails from various accounts using the same Gmail app.  However if you don’t like having to switch between accounts and would much prefer a unified view, you’re in luck.

Gmail for iOS has recently been updated where it will now support a unified inbox. What does this mean? For those who are unfamiliar, basically a unified inbox is where all your emails from the various accounts you’ve attached to the app can be viewed in a single space. So if you have email accounts for work, for your business, for personal, and/or school, you can view them all without having to hop between accounts.

According to Google, “You can view email from multiple accounts, be it your work or personal, G Suite or non-G Suite (even third-party IMAP accounts), in the Gmail iOS app. But you’ve traditionally needed to toggle between different inboxes to do so. To save you time, we’re now making it possible to view emails from multiple accounts in a single inbox on an iOS device—the same way you can with the Gmail Android app.”

This will come in handy if you’re trying to search for an email that you’re unsure was sent to which account. The downside to a unified inbox is that it is considerably more messy since it brings all your emails to a single location, but we guess that also depends on how well you manage your emails. Google notes that the rollout should take place over the coming weeks so keep an eye out for it.
