How To Add iCloud Email to Gmail 

iCloud email addresses cannot be fully integrated into Gmail because they do not support Google’s Gmailify feature.

To add your iCloud email to the Gmail web app, use the Gmail “Import mail and contacts” feature to import incoming emails from your iCloud account to your Gmail account. Then use Gmail’s “Send mail as” feature to reply, forward, or send new emails from within Gmail using your iCloud email address.

To add your iCloud email to the Gmail mobile app, use the “add new account” feature to log into your iCloud email account from within the Gmail mobile app.
