I'm using Android 4.1 on a Droid Razr M.

Is there any way to send an email to a contact Group?

I've read several posts that show how to do this but none of them actually work.

There is also an app (GroupU) but it would be nice to be able to send to groups within Gmail.

You can't send them within gmail app. You need to create Google group for that. See… – avirk Dec 23 '12 at 3:26

I spent some time checking for a solution myself, and here are my conclusions.

  1. We will never be able to send to groups within Gmail for Android. I think it's a problem Google will never solve maybe because they want us to use Google Plus to send to groups (i.e. Circles).

  2. To send to Gmail groups outside of Gmail, I found that using Go Contacts is the best way. Gmail Group Share (Free) is also working, but it shows groups of only one Google Account at time.

Couldn't you at least provide links to the apps you're recommending? – Al E. Jul 24 '13 at 0:09

Use gmail group share, go to the settings and click to show the hidden group and system group.
