Emails don’t have to be exclusive. Sometimes three (or 50) is not a crowd. Adding more people to an email group can make planning events, working together, sharing documents, or chatting away much simpler. Lucky for you, creating a group email in Gmail isn’t complicated, and there are a couple of ways to do it. Let’s show you how it’s done.

There’s a very neat way to create group emails in Gmail using contact labels. This is convenient for group emails including specific groups of people you will contact often. You could have a label for “Co-workers,” for example. Or one for “Weekend parties,” “Family,” or any other groups of people you can think of.

  1. Go to the Google Contacts website.
  2. Select the contacts you want to add to a label.
  3. Click on the Manage Labels button up top. It looks like a sticky note separator.
  4. Select the labels you want to add your contacts to. Or you can create a new one.
  5. Hit Save.
  6. Go to Gmail.
  7. Select Compose.
  8. In the To section, start typing the label name you want to send an email to.
  9. The label should appear as a suggestion. Select the label, complete the email, and hit Send.
  10. If the label isn’t suggested, click on the To section.
  11. A window with your contact list will appear.
  12. In the Manage labels section, there is a drop-down menu. Click on it and select the label you want to send the email to.
  13. Press Select All or pick the contacts from the list. Then hit Insert.
  14. Complete the email and hit Send.
