If, like me, you’ve not been particularly clever or organised when creating and using accounts on Google, or have personal/professional accounts to switch between, then a feature I’d not seen before from Google will be a godsend for you – sign in to multiple Google accounts at once! Excellent, Google just got a whole lot quicker (and less complicated)!
Taken from the Google Support post:
“If you use multiple sign-in, the first account you use to sign in during that browser session will be your default account for the rest of that session. If you visit other Google products that don’t support multiple accounts after you’ve signed in, you will automatically sign in to your default account for that product. If you sign out of any Google product while signed in to any account, you will be signed out of all your Google Accounts at once.”
The Google products this works with are:
You can use multiple sign-in with the following desktop versions of these Google products:
- Docs (Google Apps accounts only)
- Google Moderator
- Web Search
However, this doesn’t solve one problem – I want to merge accounts to reduce the number of accounts I have, not keep them separate but have easier access. Any ideas?
