Set up a group to email related contacts in an instant.
Gmail makes it easy to send group emails to multiple addresses at once. If you find yourself needing to add more people to an existing group, it’s as simple as choosing who should be part of the group and then choosing which group to put them in.
Add recipients to a Gmail group
Adding existing contacts to a Gmail group is very easy:
Open the Gmail screen and tap the icon Menu in the top right corner next to your avatar. Select Contacts to open a list of all existing contacts.
Hover over the first letter before the name of each contact you want to add to the group to open the checkbox. Check the box next to each contact you add.
Click on icon Label at the top of your contact lists. In chapter Label management select the group you want to add all new contacts to and click Apply save changes.
If the group does not exist yet, select Create shortcut drop down menu Label management and enter a name for the new group.
Check your work by selecting the group name in the section labels on the left panel. You should see all the new contacts in the group.
Add new recipients to the contact list
If the recipients aren’t already in your contact list, the process will take a little longer because you need to add them as contacts before adding them to the group. The fastest way to add a new contact is to hover over the name in the email and select Add to contacts on the pop-up screen.
Send an email to a group
When you’re ready to contact the entire group, click To create in Gmail to open the new message screen. in field To who enter a group name. Click group name in the pop-up menu and the names of the members are entered in the field To who .
Gmail Group Tips
Gmail doesn’t allow you to directly create a new group of recipients in a message. For example, if you receive email from multiple people in the same group message, you can’t quickly add them all to the new group. Instead, you need to add each address individually as a new contact and then add them to the same group.
The same applies if you enter multiple email addresses in the fields To who , To copy or Hidden copy and then add them to the group. You can hover over any address, add them as contacts, and then add them to a group, but you can’t quickly add each address to a new group automatically.
