There are many reasons why you should learn how to create a new Gmail account. Here’s comprehensive information on how to create a new Gmail account.

For most people, Gmail is email. It is available for less than $1.99 per month, not only in terms of its features and usability but also offers customers a very generous 15GB of free storage. It definitely helps to look more professional than your average Yahoo or Hotmail account.

If you have filled that space or just want a fresh start, creating a new Gmail account is very easy. Maybe you started a new business and need a new professional voice address, or your name has changed and you need your email address to reflect that? Newcomers to Android will find that they need a Gmail address to sign in and get started.

Whatever the reason, here’s how to create a new Gmail account.

Tap the box when you change the username. Create enough time and eventually, the warning will not appear that you already have an email address. I mean it’s available and yours.

You will need to verify your identity by providing your phone number to Google for a two-factor authentication code.
