Now you have signed in with your Gmail credentials on the app. Now by default whenever you open the app, you should get a notification with all the new email alerts.
If you want the app to notify you as and when you get an email, then you need to enable Auto-Sync. This service in Android, lets the applications receive and send data in the background without having to be opened by the user. This will mean MORE data charges mind you. However, the app will automatically let you know of any new messages you receive.
To enable auto-sync in android, go to settings, and scroll to the accounts section. Here you will find an option titled, “Sync”. Select it and you will be able to enable auto sync over mobile data or only over Wi-Fi whichever suits better for you.
