A lot of people who use Google services usually have more than one account. This means that they always have to pay attention and use certain apps with particular accounts.
One example is using Gmail for work. You may work at a company that gives you a Gmail-based email account and this means that you will probably switch between your personal account and the work one.
All the other Google services that are associated with each account will work the same.
An easier way to switch between accounts
BGR reveals that Google came up with a solution to move between accounts and it’s available on both iPhone and Android.
Most users move between account by tapping in the avatar image and choosing the correct account from the drop-down menu.
Now that we have gestures, this doesn’t make much sense anymore. You can swipe up or down in various apps in order to seamlessly switch between your accounts.
According to the online publication mentioned above, “The feature is available in various Google apps, including Gmail, Maps, Search, Drive, and Google Maps.”
BGR continues and says that “The feature is far more useful in Gmail than it is in Maps, and any other Google app where you want to keep things separate between your accounts — this includes Calendar, Search, Contacts, and Drive, to name just a few.”
We recently reported another Google-related piece of news.
