How to Set Auto Reply "Out of Office" in Gmail App

Unless you manually end it earlier, Gmail will begin sending the auto-reply when you set up the vacation responder at 12 a.m. on the start date and stop sending it at 11:59 p.m. on the end date.   Gmail typically only sends your automated reply message once in response to an email sent to you while the vacation responder is enabled. If they write you again after four days or if you modify your vacation response and they email you again, they might see your vacation response more than once. Let's see how to set out of the office in Gmail App.
