    When i was getting the same "unsupported" message before, I set up my gmail through the pop/imap feature, which worked, but did not support contacts or calendar.
    This morning I was able to set up my account through the gmail option. It took several minutes to initiate and update, so don't do this if you need to use the phone immediately
    A tip: once you know you CAN set up through the gmail option, go through and cancel/delete it from any previous option you had set up/linked it to before..... do this FIRST to avoid confusion with duplicated accounts.
    You will NOT get a Gmail tile. When you want to ACCESS your gmail click the Outlook tile and hit the 3 lines in the upper left. That will allow you to select which accounts to view.

    They seem to have fixed it.
    Was having this issue last night when setting up a friends gmail on a new Lumia, now this morning it worked.

    Hopefully its fixed for everyone.
    Can you describe the whole procedure what you did in your friends phone?
    And can i know which phone(model No.) he is using.

    It was a Google iussue, they fixed it last week and made public apologizes (see articles on Central or Google)
    Now you can simply add your gMail account like any other

    On start screen swipe to the left to the app list.
    Open the Outlook mail app
    Tap on the hamburger menu in the left top corner
    Tap then on the setting wheel in the right bottom corner
    Under the setting page tap on accounts
    And then on + account
    And then on Google
    Now you can add your google account.

    But i do not know if you get a live tile.
    You can't, period.

    This isn't the answer, all this does is link your gmail account to your outlook inbox, you have the option of adding a "livetile" to the homescreen but it's not a real gmail tile it's just another outlook tile with the gmail name.

    You'll understand when you get an email to your gmail inbox and it also shows on the outlook tile as well.

    There is no true option of adding gmail as a separate client to your windows 10 phone. If you unlink your gmail from your outlook account the supposed gmail "livetile" will disappear.

    Why is it that when there are any issues with anything Microsoft it's always passed onto Indian people?

    Is all Microsoft product troubleshooting handled by people in India?
