Mein Auto: x1
android galaxy s5 5.0 and gmail syncing

Hello, Can someone inform me if my 2014 x1 now has the ability to receive my Gmail and show it on the message screen. when i first got the car , I was told only if i was using an I phone. Last night, i observed that my college outlook email showed on the message screen along with text messages but not Gmail. I called BMW genius and was told that I needed to make my Gmail the default app on my phone and link it up to email. He would not help me with this as he was an I phone user and being tech challenged a bit, I do not know what to do on my phone. I searched though the phone settings and could not find this.
as always, Thanks to this forum for any help

Awaiting the answer. The fact that I can't use most of my X1's capabilities with my Galaxy is the only things that upsets me about buying this car. BMW should make it more clear that their tech is designed for Apple customers only.
