Please note that you can use an HTML signature in the Gmail web app (for more details, please check our guide Can I use my signature on Android?). However, if you are using the Gmail app on your Android phone, you can create a plain text signature and use it in your emails on the Gmail app for Android:

Step 1. Create a plain text signature

To create a plain text signature, we suggest you create a new department, such as "Plain text signatures for the Gmail app" and select the Blank template from our Templates Gallery as the Master template.

Please note that plain text signatures can only contain text and not include images or hyperlinks. We suggest you include only User Info and Contact Info in this signature. Here's an example of how a plain text signature looks:

Based on the Master template, you can mass-create new signatures for the Gmail mobile app by uploading a CSV file or importing data from the Google Workspace Directory.

Step 2. Share signatures for further installation

After creating and saving your signatures, follow these steps to share them with your colleagues:

2.1. Click on the Deploy button;

2.2. Choose the Send by Email option;

2.3. Select the email addresses of the recipients;

2.4. Hit the Send button to share the signatures for further installation. The recipients you selected will receive an email containing the signature in their inbox.

Step 3. Install a signature

To install your signature on the Gmail app for Android, follow these steps:

3.1. Open the email you received on your Android device using the Gmail app.

3.2. Tap the Get your signature button to view it on a browser installed on your device, preferably Chrome.

3.3. Tap on the iPhone/iPad icon in the list of email clients.

3.4. Use the Copy signature button to copy your signature.

3.5. Open the Gmail app on your Android phone.

3.6. Select your mail account.

3.7. Then go to the Main Menu.

3.8. Open Settings.

3.9. Choose the mail account you want to add your signature to.

3.10. Scroll down to the Mobile signature settings.

3.11. Paste your signature into the settings, edit its design, and click OK.

Note: You should remove transparent images in your signature in your signature before saving changes. Next, click OK to save all changes.

Step 4: Finalize and Test.

Close the signature settings window. Compose a new email in the Mail app to see your branded and professional email signature in action.
