Are there mail, calendar, & contacts better than the built-in apps already on Android & iPhone? 

The built-in apps on Android & iPhone do not work as well as G Suite's apps. Therefore, we recommend installing & using G Suite apps directly from the Google Play store or the Apple App Store. 

Mobile overview

The following G Suite services are available on mobile devices.

Download and install G Suite

Download and install the products below (or just a select few) from Google Play (Android devices) or App Store (iOS devices). Then, to open them, just tap the G Suite service on your mobile device.

Access G Suite from your browser

If an app isn’t available on your Android or iOS device, or if you're using a different type of device, type the following locations in your mobile browser for an experience that’s similar to your desktop computer.

How do I setup mailto links to use my Gmail?

"How do I set Gmail as my browser's default email client for mailto links?"

SHORT ANSWER: Sadly, there is no short answer. Let's review how to update the settings.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR CHROME: We highly recommend the Chrome browser to enable all the superpowers of G Suite. If you use another browser, please check here for the full instructions. 

Step 1: Open Gmail in Chrome and click the Protocol Handler icon   in your browser's address bar. If you don't see this icon, skip ahead to step 3.

Step 2: When prompted to "Allow Gmail to open all email links?", select "Use Gmail," and click "Done." Then you're done! Skip steps 3-5.

Step 3: If you were unable to see the Protocol Handler icon , click the Chrome menu icon  in the top right corner of your browser, and choose "Settings."

Step 4: Click the "Show Advanced Settings" link at the bottom of the screen. Then click the "Content Settings" button under the "Privacy" header.

Step 5: In the pop-up window, scroll down to the "Handlers" section and click the "Manage Handlers" button. Then select Gmail from the mailto dropdown, click "Done," and, well, you're done!
