Which apps affected

The sync settings shown above reveal that adding an additional Google account affects several apps, depending on which data you choose to sync. Your Google account connects to the following apps and features:

  • Calendar
  • Chrome
  • Contacts
  • Docs
  • Drive
  • Gmail
  • Google Fit data
  • Google Play
  • Google+
  • Keep

In addition, you’ll see a change on any other apps that support Google login. Let’s see how this affects some of the standard apps.

Gmail

If you chose to sync your Gmail account, you’ll now see two or more accounts listed in the Gmail app.

You can customize inbox and notification settings via the account settings menu. With Gmail open, tap the hamburger icon in the top-left, then scroll down to the very bottom of the list of labels and tap Settings. Select the account for which you’d like to adjust settings, and make your changes.

Google Chrome

With Google Chrome, you’ll find a list of all Google accounts, but you can’t conveniently switch between them or make individual settings.

What you can choose, however, is which account to sync Chrome with. Go to Settings and tap the current Google account (Syncing to). Under the list of associated accounts tap Sync, then Sync to, and select the desired account. You can keep data from two accounts separate or delete data from your previous account, though it will still be available when you log back in. Finally, log into the new account to start syncing Chrome profile data with it.

Allo and Duo

Allo and Duo have replaced Hangouts. While Hangouts supports multiple accounts (see below), Allo and Duo are tied to your phone number and you can only associate them with one Google account at a time. However, you can switch accounts.

To switch accounts in Duo, open the app and tap the three-dot menu in the top-right. Select Settings and choose to Remove Google Account From Duo. Next, you might have to verify your phone number. Now go back to Settings and tap Add Account. If you have more than one account, you’ll see a dropdown list with all the accounts you can add. Choose one, Agree, and you’re done.

To do this in Allo, open the app, tap the hamburger icon in the top-left and select Settings. From here, tap Account > Disconnect, then select Google Account and pick your desired account to add.

Google Hangouts

Much like Gmail, the Hangouts app will show you a list of your accounts, so you can manage multiple identities.

Via Settings, you can make individual choices for each account. For example, you could choose to receive vibration and sound notifications for one account but only vibration for another.

Google Calendar

Your calendar can display events from multiple sources. Not only can you manage multiple calendars under one account, but you can also manage them from multiple accounts.

Open the app, tap the hamburger icon, and browse through the list of calendars under each of your Google accounts. While you can’t disable entire accounts here (you’d have to do this under Android’s Google account settings, as described above), you can deselect all calendars listed under a specific profile.

Google Play Store

Your calendar can display events from multiple sources. Not only can you manage multiple calendars under one account, but you can also manage them from multiple accounts.

Open the app, tap the hamburger icon, and browse through the list of calendars under each of your Google accounts. While you can’t disable entire accounts here (you’d have to do this under Android’s Google account settings, as described above), you can deselect all calendars listed under a specific profile.

Thus, this is where you can find apps you’ve used in the past, possibly on another device, and install them. Unfortunately, you can no longer bulk-install apps from this screen.

When you scroll down all the way and tap Settings, you can select each calendar and edit its individual settings, such as color or default notifications.

Other Google Apps

Managing multiple accounts in Google Drive, Keep, and other Google apps is very similar to what we described above. Contacts from all your Google accounts and other non-Google accounts like Facebook and WhatsApp should automatically sync with your Contacts app.

And if you’re interested, learn how to set one Google account as the default for signing into apps.

However, you can run multiple copies of the same app on Android using a third-party app called Parallel Space. You can then associate each app with a different user account.
