Chrome OS will soon support multiple Google Accounts
The operating system that powers Chromebooks is finally getting support for multiple Google Accounts.
- Chrome OS’s Canary Channel supports multiple Google Accounts.
- The feature should appear on all Chromebooks soon
- New accounts can be added using the Account Manager.
You may have read reports of support for multiple Google Accounts for Chrome OS in September last year. Well, according to a recent report from Chrome Story, it is finally on the updated Canary Channel of Chrome OS. This means support for multiple Google Accounts will soon roll out, even to a stable version of Chrome OS. When this is done, you’ll be able to add multiple Google Accounts to your Chromebook using the newly added Account Manager.
According to a report by Chrome Story, Account Manager is already available on Chrome OS’s Canary Channel. For the uninitiated, Chrome and Chrome OS are available on four release channels: Stable (recommended for most regular users), Beta (for those who want to try out features still in development), Dave (for those who want to check out more), and Canary ( For those who want to make at night). The Canary Channel is updated overnight and is the most volatile of the four channels because all the new features of development are tested in it.
If you have a Chromebook and you’re on the Canary Channel, you can access the Account Manager by opening Settings, then Selecting People, and then Google Account. You should then be greeted by a window with the headline: “Manage your Google Accounts in one place”. Once you’ve added multiple Google Accounts, you’ll be asked which account you want to use as the default when you first open an app (like Gmail).
