The ability to add a signature to emails is one of the commonly used Gmail features among users around the world. The only flaw is that it lets you have only one signature at a time which is not ideal for all situations. It is the reason Google has now announced multiple signatures support on Gmail.
This new functionality will allow users to set personalized email signatures for different situations and recipients. It is currently available only on the web but should arrive on smartphone apps soon enough. With multiple signatures, one of them can be set as default and changes can be made right from the mail composure window.
As for how to create and use multiple email signatures in Gmail, all the steps are simple and straight forward. The first thing you need to do is to click on the Settings icon on the top right corner of the web client. It will take you to Gmail settings where you need to visit the General section. Look for the Signature section and click on Add New to add a new signature. This is the procedure that you need to follow for creating every new email signature.
When you will be writing a new email or reply to an existing conversation, you will see a new signature icon next to existing options like gallery and attachment. Clicking the icon will show a list of all available signatures and you simply need to choose the one that you want to use.
Google has announced that Gmail multiple signatures support has started to roll out globally. However, it may take up to a couple of weeks before it becomes available for your particular Gmail account.
