thanks for this couldnt find refresh anywhere. How are we suppose to know to swipe down, or did i miss something?
If you have turned off auto sync, you can manually refresh Gmail on Android phones and tablet, to check your new emails and unread messages in your inbox. To update emails in Gmail do as follows:
1. Open Gmail app
3. If you have updated Gmail app, you need to do as follows:
a. Swipe down in the Gmail app to refresh
b. Checking for email appears
c. If you have new unread messages, the number of them is shown
