    On my new S7, the Samsung email icon lets me know how many unread emails I have.

    However, the gmail icon has no such number counter on it.

    How can enable such a feature, please?

    Thanks.

    Unread counters or badges aren't natively supported by Google apps, so it's up to your launcher to do so. For this to work, you'll need a 3rd party launcher that supports badges for more apps like Nova (might have to download extra plug-ins), but bear in mind that for Google apps this might be buggy since the functionality isn't native to them.

    Thanks. I used that for the 3. I thought it may not have needed it for the 7.

    You don't for apps that natively support badges (since TouchWiz supports unread counters), but Google's apps don't have this functionality built in, so you need 3rd party plugins to make it happen... and TouchWiz doesn't support those.

    Meaning that you have your choice of TouchWiz OR some other launcher. You can't get Nova's badging in TouchWiz. (I think most of us here gave up on TouchWiz a long time ago.)

    Download this APP. Unread Badge (for Gmail).

    Make sure you don't select notifications or it goes off every minute.
