Tip: How to switch between multiple accounts in the Gmail App

After the email account is added you can go back to the Gmail app to send/recieve emails. If you have multiple accounts in the Gmail app then you need to select the profile picture in the top right hand corner (highlighted by a red box in the screenshot below)

Then if you do have multiple accounts you will see those listed here. If you click on the account you want to use, it will load the Inbox and other folders for that specific account.
