We all know that managing multiple Google accounts is certainly quite a hassle. To make life easier, Google is working to bring Multiple Account Sign-in option, noted Google Operating System Blog. So, if you have like two or more Google accounts for personal and work related reasons, you’ll need to log-in just once. This means you can manage both your accounts simultaneously from single login.
Google will soon be rolling out the capability to sign in to multiple accounts via the same browser. This is undeniably good news for those of us with partners who share our laptop, who have work and personal email accounts, and, of course, those of us who got fed up of Google alerts clogging up our inboxes and built a separate email address for them.
Multiple user account logins in Gmail and a few other Google services are available to Google account users and will enable each user to activate a multiple user account sign-in feature by checking a box in their personal settings. The user must then add each account manually to the default account. Swapping between accounts will then be a matter of clicking a drop-down box at the top of, say, your Gmail account screen, says Google.
This feature would be available at the Google Accounts page wherein Personal Settings menu option will list multiple sign-in option just below the email addresses setting. You’ll be reminded of a similar feature on Google Analytics if you have ever used it. Also, it will serve as an account switcher that will allow checking out different Google Accounts from top right corner without signing out from any of them.
Currently it will only work for Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Sites, Google Reader, Google Voice, App Engine and Google Code. Google Docs capability will soon follow. When the multiple sign in is enabled the accounts are accessed through a drop down menu in the top right of the page.
