Sign in to a different account

On your Android mobile device
  1. Open the Google Play Movies & TV app Google Play Movies.
  2. Tap the Menu icon Movies Menu.
  3. At the top of the main menu, you'll see which account you're using.
  4. Next to your account, tap the down arrow and then select a different account.
    • To add a different account, go your device's Settings app Settings and then tap Accounts and then Add account and then Google.
On Android TV

To sign in to a different Google Play Movies & TV account on Android TV, you'll need to remove the account you're using on your device and add the new one. After doing this, you'll need to go through the setup process again. For more information, go to the Android TV Help Center.

You can also cast to your Android TV from another Google Account using your phone or tablet. For more information, go to the Google Cast Help Center.

On iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch
  1. Open the Google Play Movies app Google Play Movies.
  2. Tap the Menu icon Movies Menu and then Settings and then Sign out.
  3. Select the account you used to rent or buy the movie or TV show.
    • If you don't see the account you used, tap Add account.

If you use 2-step verification on an account, you'll need to create an application-specific password before adding an account.
