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.

Choose which device to use multiple accounts on

  1. On your Android phone or tablet, say "Hey Google, open Assistant settings."
  2. Tap You and then Accounts
  3. Tap the account you want to use for your device.
  4. Under “Devices,” next to the device you want to use, check the box.
    • You can choose multiple devices.
    • The phone you are using is enabled automatically.

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

Turn off proactive personal results for an additional account

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," tap a deviceand then Don’t show proactively.

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.

VoiceMatch or FaceMatch

To access personal results, you may need to turn on VoiceMatch or FaceMatch 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.
