    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.

    If you can not find it in the store then I guess you need to do a Hard Reset.
    (I by the way can not find it in the store.)

    Harrie-S is correct. If you removed it (why did you do that!?!?!) then you have to do a hard reset. No way around it.

    Well
    1) Go to the Outlook
    2) On the left top Corner press the three lines.
    3) Now on the right hand side bottom you would see setting icon
    4) click Setting icon
    5) Click Account, you should be able to see Gmail and you may click

    The other option is
    1) Go to the Outlook
    2) On the left top Corner press the three lines.
    3) Click Account
    4) You should be able to choose Gmail or Hotmail

    You could also add a new mail account here

    Regards
    Ram

    I got my two account (gmail and 365) both pinned to the start screen, but there the same Outlook icon and I cant tell them apart without going into them. Is this by design or did I screw something up?

    I like in 8.1 they were two different icons.

    Same thing here. Must be something wrong in the current build.

    I find a way:
    Create an Exchange account with domain: google and server: m.google.com
    First it doesn't work, then, go to your account via another device, you should have received a mail saying a connexion attempt had been blocked, follow the setting link and allow connexion from less secure app (or something like that, I'm french, I don't exactly know the terms used in English).
    Then it should work (I'm not sure, I had deleted my account before noticing the mail, then created it again, do that if it do not update).

    BUT, it seems pictures don't load :/
    I didn't succeed to make it work throught IMAP/POP, but someone could be better than me about that way.

    Edit:
    For POP/IMAP:
    Go to advanced configuration (the last one when creating a new account)
    Select the second one, email on internet IMAP/POP
    Enter your email adress
    for user, same email adress
    password
    Choose the name you want to give to the account
    Name used to send mail
    Incoming mail adress: imap.google.com or pop.google.com (you should activate one of them in your gmail settings on the web)
    select the type according to the one choose before
    Outgoing mail adress: smtp.google.com

    It should be working, with picture loading. But no calendar/contacts.

    Why should we create a new exchange account if I have a working Microsoft account. And even after creating new exchange account if it not working for calendar/contacts whats the use of creating it.

    Cause there is a bug for now that prevent to log to you gmail account. So for my case, until it is fixed, I use the old way to connect to mail account.

    About the use of calendar/contact, I didn't look if exchange account sync it or not, I just said IMAP/POP doesn't. Because in fact, I personally don't care since my gmail account is just for mails, important mails, but I have no use of calendar nor contacts. So I found a way to have a usefull mailbox to avoid a bug during the time it's fixed and I shared it.
    If you're not happy with this, well, please enjoys your unhappy life or roll back to another W10M build, or well, find another way to connect to your gmail account.

    Yeah, can't add a google account on my new 950XL...fast ring. Says browser not supported. Lame, Google (and Microsoft?).

    They need to fix this ASAP as lots of new customers are coming on with the $449 sale. Looks real bad.

    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.
