Some third-party services, like social media, music streaming, and online shopping, let you link your Google Account to improve your experience. When you link your Google Account with a third-party site or app, that service may send information to Google. Third-party services may tell you what kind of information they share with Google.
Note: Third-party services are created by companies or developers that aren’t Google.
How Google uses data from linked third-party services
Google may access your account on the third-party service to:
- Improve features and do more for you on Google services. For example, you can link your favorite music app to play music with your Google Nest or Google Home speakers.
- Let you use third-party features from within Google services. For example, you can link apps to Google Assistant to help you get things done, like add items to your to-do list on a productivity app.

- Go to the third-party service where you linked your Google Account.
- Select a section like Apps, Connected accounts, or Linked accounts. This may be in the service’s Settings section.
