Some Google mobile apps include a new gesture-based account switcher that lets you switch between your various Google accounts. Learn how to use it in Gmail, Google Maps, Drive, and other applications for Android, iPhone, and iPad.
The new account switch was announced at the Google I / O 201
To use Google's new account toggle, you must first sign up for at least two Google accounts on your phone or tablet. Android users can do this through the device's Settings menu, and iPhone and iPad owners can add additional accounts using the Google app.
Next, open the Gmail app (or one of Google's other newly updated apps). Then find the avatar of your account on the right side of the search bar. To quickly switch between accounts, swipe down the avatar's image.
As you can see from the above GIF, swiping the avatar from your account to the next one changes Google Account. Unfortunately, there seems to be no way to manually adjust the order of the accounts. You must continue to swipe down until you switch to the desired account.
If you'd like to more closely control the account switch function, you can tap your avatar to see all available accounts. This opens a new menu for switching accounts and adding and managing existing accounts on the device.
At the time of writing, Google already had this feature on its mobile Gmail, Google Maps, and Drive apps on Android, iPhone, and iPad introduced. Android users can also find the new account switch in the contact app.
Google has announced that it will be transferring the new account switching feature to more apps over the coming months. Although we expect this change to affect most of the company's apps, the technology firm confirmed that YouTube, Chrome, Google News, and a few others should see the feature by the end of summer 2019.
