    So until this is fixed the only way to add a gmail account is to add it under "Other Account" in Choose an Account.
    Nope, that also isnt working for us. The one guy who said it was working for him said its only allowing him to access email but not calendar.

    Lumia 950 XL, windows phone 10.

    same issue like the screenshot above.

    This is a major problem as I can't get not my mails not my contacts not the calendars. plain disaster.

    It's something on google's end I guess?

    Hey do me a solid and try something.... login to your Gmail from a computer. Access My account by clicking your profile in the upper right corner of the screen. Click apps and sites under the box that says sign in and security. Scroll to the bottom and toggle on 'allow unsecure apps and sites to access'. Try syncing on your windows phone again.

    My roommate is at work so I can't try on her phone. Let us know if this solves it.

    Download the transfer my contacts app and sync it to an old phone that has the contacts. Or there are a bunch of third party contacts syncing apps out there that can do it. Try the fix I just suggested in my last post and let me know if it solves the overall issue though.

    Has anyone tried one of the third-party mail apps?

    My Google account is my backup (I mostly use hotmail, have had it for over 17yrs now;-0), so I rarely actually sign in, keep it running as secondary in Outlook (desktop app) to prevent it from getting terminated, for occasional use.

    If one of the third-party apps work (they get pretty good ratings actually), it would be something to "bridge", and most likely (hopefully) they integrate contacts and calendar.
    Not saying I've tried this, but I did try the Google setup and got the compatibility error everyone else is, I'm sure it's being looked at.
    To be fair, Google hasn't been making it easy, they more or less killed the ability to use Google Voice on the Edge mobile browser, where it had been working previously. I think both companies are a bit "at odds" right now, but I'm positive MS will fix this, soon.
    Years ago, things were similarly at odds with Netware/Novell, but compatibility issues were a priority 0 problem, almost without question, MS wants you to be able to have an integrated experience.
    I wonder, if this might also be broken on the Win10 desktop app...

    Ability to use Gmail on windows mobile will be a release feature on redstone 2.

    This is ridiculous, this is no bummer, is a huge bummer, completely a deal breaker ATM!!

    Can some try to go to Google options and activate the less security and give it a try? This should not work for people with 2 step auth.

    This does NOT solve the whole problem, BUT as a workaround for email it works.
    Do as described above, then on phone do the
    - Add an account
    - Advanced set-up
    - Internet email
    Add your Email address and Username is also your email address
    "Acccount name" is what you want to see as uour account on the phone
    - incoming email server: imap.gmail.com:993:1
    - Account type: IMAP4
    - Outgoing (SMTP) email server: smtp.gmail.com:465:1
    - check all options

    For me this gives gmail emails. If you go and "Manage" your account you can set sync intervall etc.
    Unfortunately this does not give you your calendar or contacts.

    I turned of my extra security, same deal.
    Works fine on desktop though, the Win10 Mail client tests out just fine.

    GMail shows the (Mobile) login, on the Google control panel-accounts, as an IE sign-in, and not really a failure either...

    Talked to Microsoft support and it sounds like they know about the issue and are working on it.

    Broken English but the point is there.

    Actually this is a known issue to us.

    One of the reasons you are experiencing the issue would be because of the new update that is about to be downloaded on your phone when it becomes available.

    Have you tried a third-party app?
    You can also use web-mail, for that week, if that's the delay-time. I know it's not an awesome solution, but it works. Maybe one of the apps works, and is a better stop-gap.

    web access with edge without the app works, my main problem is contacts, I'll transfer them probably to my outlook.com account and solve this issue for now until the patch.
