Use multiple accounts at once on your Google Assistant devices

When you set up multiple accounts on a device, you can get calendar updates from all your accounts while you stay signed in to one. On some Smart Displays, you can also join a video call with Meet, even if your primary Google Account isn’t through work or school.

Important: This feature is only available in English.

Add another account to a device

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, say "Hey Google, open Assistant settings." 
  2. Make sure you’re signed in to the additional account you want to use:
    1. Next to your email address, tap the Down arrow .
    2. If the account isn’t listed, tap Add another account.
  3. Make sure your primary @gmail.com account is selected and shows at the top of Assistant settings. To switch accounts:
    1. Next to your email address, tap the Down arrow .
    2. Tap your primary @gmail.com account.
  4. Tap You and then Accounts.
  5. Below the account you want to use, tap Enable and then Continue.

    • If you want to use a Google Workspace account on your device but can’t select it, you might need to turn on Voice Match for the device. If you still can't select the device or can’t turn on Voice Match, please contact your admin for more details.

Tip: You can also say, “Hey Google, enable my account” to enable multiple accounts on a device.

If you only want to get personal results for your primary account:

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, say "Hey Google, open Assistant settings." 
  2. Tap You and then Accounts and then select an account.
  3. Under "Devices," next to the device you want to turn off proactive results for, tap Edit Edit and then Don’t show proactively and then Save.

How Google Assistant settings work with multiple accounts

Personal results

When you turn on personal results for your primary account, personal results also turn on for any additional accounts you add to the device. You can turn off personal results for additional accounts. For example, if you have an upcoming Meet meeting for your work account, you’ll get a notification to join the meeting.

If you turn off personal results from your primary account, personal results also turn off for any additional accounts you add to the device.

Voice Match or Face Match

To access personal results, you may need to turn on Voice Match or Face Match for your primary account.

Get updates about your calendar

You can ask Google Assistant to cancel or reschedule meetings or tell you what’s on your calendars. Learn how to edit calendar events and schedules.

Tip: When you use multiple accounts, your Assistant device shows events from the primary calendar of all your accounts. Learn how to change your calendar settings.

Join a Meet meeting

On some devices, when you set up multiple accounts, you can join Meet meetings. To join a meeting, say something like:

  • “Hey Google, join my meeting.”
  • “Hey Google, start a new meeting.”

How Assistant activity works with multiple accounts

If you have Web & App Activity turned on, your Assistant activity is saved to your account. When you use the Assistant with more than one account, your activity only saves on your main account.

If one of your accounts is through school or work, your admin always has access to any data that is saved with this account, like if you create or modify a calendar event. The Web & App Activity of your main account is always private.
