    Unless something has changed with gmail, in your settings, go to email-accounts, tap add an account, choose google. Then email addy and password. That is all it is usually. What are you seeing?

    What problem are you having? In which ap is your Gmail account being displayed? AFAIK if you follow the instructions in Techblogger's post you will get Gmail in the default WP8 email app. If your problem is that you have two separate in-boxes and you only want one, the just open the email app and select Link Inboxes in the settings.

    Thanks for the reply. I have found the solution here at wpc. To setup your gmail as an Outlook account just go through the sign in portion under a new Outlook account (email/password). Then try to sign in, it'll throw an error saying it can't sign in and then show the username and domain fields below the original fields. Add @gmail.com to the username it's provided (it should be your full email address) and then ignore the domain field. Sign in again. It should throw another error giving the option for "advanced" now, tap it. It should show you an option for a server, type in "m.google.com" and make sure the SSL box is checked (think mine was on by default and I didn't scroll to look for it). Let it sync up and it'll behave more like the gmail.

    Short version :)
    email: fulladdress @gmail.com
    password: password
    username: fulladdress @gmail.com
    domain: [leave blank]
    server: m.google.com
    SSL?: Yes/Check

    But I'm still not sure what you're problem was??? I use Gmail as my main email account on my 720. I simply opened the email app, went to Settings and added a new Google account. My Gmail emails appear in the default mail app on the 720. If I want a unified inbox for both Gmail and my Windows Live Mail account (which is the account I set the phone up with) I can Link the two and then get emails from both accounts in the one Inbox. So what exactly was the problem that made you hunt for the convoluted solution you posted. I'm really not sure what you're trying to achieve or have achieved.

    Dear in windows8 phone, in my case l720 settings>email+accounts>add an account>outlook. here in outlook, gmail was not configuring while in settings>email+accounts>add an account>gmail it worked perfectly. so my solution is for inbuilt outlook client in windows8 phone. both are the different things but in user experience they work same.

    ... in my case l720 settings>email+accounts>add an account>outlook.
    That's the bit I don't get. Why would you select Outlook when you are trying to add a Gmail account.

    ...settings>email+accounts>add an account>gmail it worked perfectly.
    As it should, because that's how you're supposed to add a Gmail account to the Windows Phone 8 email app.

    ... so my solution is for inbuilt outlook client in windows8 phone.
    Both solutions are for inbuilt outlook client in windows8 phone.

    both are the different things but in user experience they work same.
    So what's the advantage of adding a Gmail account by selecting add Outlook account rather than add Gmail account?

    I added gmail account today but it still shows my hotmail email in email app. I had to link inboxes to see mails from both emails but I just need my gmail account to be the default one. What should I do?

    Just click on the Gmail account in the email app to make it active. Next time you go back, it will still be active. There is no concept of a 'default' mail app, whatever account is show is the active one. If you're viewing the Gmail account, it's the one that you will be replying from.

    if you add a gmail account via Outlook, make sure you go to settings if your want all email from your outlook.com account to go out as yourname@gmail.com.

    Your gmail account becomes an alias and you can change your "from Device" to your gmail.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi ,

    for setup a Gmail account with built-in outlook in windows phone.
    Fill the details in that manner.

    User name : abc@gmail.com
    Password : xyz123
    Domain : gmail.com
    Server : m.google.com

    and check on SSL box

    That's it....

    I would also like to tell you, why gmail is needs to configure through outlook !!!!
    The answer is , if we configure gmail with "gmail account" option under add email account there will be synchronize only with the Gmail server but not with ur outlook which you also have configured with in ur laptop or office computer , for example : ms office outlook .

    Let I brief U , suppose u have configured your Gmail account with ur laptop's outlook and in mobile with add Gmail account option then whenever u send any mail through laptop's outlook it will not reflect in ur mobile's gmail accounts sent items , it will only show at outlook or sometime in gmail account on pc but not in mobile .
    If u have configured ur gmail account through outlook in windows phone then it reflect in sent item whether it is sent from mobile/laptop's outlook/gmail.com

    This is my personal experience which i have shared

    I hope it will help u

    Thanks

    Do you have two-step verification turned on in your Google account? If so, you will need to generate an app-specific password in your Google Account Settings page and use that to log in with instead of your regular password.
