On my Android I run the Google Inbox app as my personal email client. I run the Gmail app for my company mail. Problem for me is that since I have my personal Gmail account synced with my phone it will automatically show up in Gmail, causing double notifications to show up for each new email I receive, one from Gmail and one from Inbox.

How do I remove my Google account from Gmail, and only keep it in Inbox?

AFAIK you can't configure an account only for inbox, or only for gmail.

But you can disable gmail notifications for your personnal account. In gmail, top-left menu, settings, "your-personnal-account", uncheck "notifications".

  • Hi Egoz, thanks for your answer! I just tried it out, and removing the notification for my personal email on the Gmail app does practically what I needed. Now the multiple notifications won't bug me any more. Thanks for the tip! Feb 10, 2015 at 13:53
  • You can also go into settings - > accounts -> google, then disable sync for inbox and gmail on the respective accounts, for one step further.
