Do you ever get tired of seeing all those promotional emails cluttering up your Gmail inbox on your Android device? If so, you’re in luck! In this tutorial, we will show you how to stop promotions in Gmail on Android, so you can have a cleaner and more organized email experience.

Step 1: Open the Gmail App

To begin, open the Gmail app on your Android device. If you haven’t already installed it, head over to the Google Play Store and download it.

Step 2: Access the Settings

Once you have opened the Gmail app, tap on the hamburger menu icon located at the top left corner of the screen. This will open a side menu.

Scroll down and find the “Settings” option. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 3: Select Your Account

In the Settings menu, you will see a list of your email accounts if you have multiple accounts linked to your Android device. Tap on the account for which you want to stop promotions in Gmail.

Step 4: Manage Inbox Categories

After selecting your account, scroll down until you find the “Inbox categories” section. This is where you can manage different types of emails that appear in your inbox.

Step 5: Disable Promotions

In this section, you will see various categories like Primary, Social, Promotions, Updates, and Forums. These categories help organize your emails automatically. To stop promotions from appearing in your inbox, simply uncheck the box next to “Promotions”.

Note: Disabling promotions may cause some promotional emails to be filtered into other tabs or folders depending on how you have set up your Gmail inbox categories.

Step 6: Save Changes

After unchecking the box next to “Promotions”, make sure to scroll down and tap on the “Save” button to save your changes. This will ensure that the promotions category is disabled for your selected account.

Step 7: Enjoy a Clutter-Free Inbox

Congratulations! You have successfully stopped promotions in Gmail on your Android device. Now, when you open your Gmail app, you will no longer see those pesky promotional emails cluttering up your inbox.

Additional Tips:

  • If you ever want to re-enable the promotions category, simply follow the same steps and check the box next to “Promotions”.
  • You can also customize and manage other inbox categories according to your preferences by checking or unchecking their respective boxes in the “Inbox categories” section.
