How to use two Gmail accounts at once

Google account snow let's you sign in to multiple accounts. This is good news for people who have multiple Gmail accounts. You can now sign-in to two Gmail accounts at the same time in the same browser. You do not need to sign out of one to use the other. Both accounts can be accessed at once.

How to Access two Gmail accounts at once in the same browser

1. Visit google.com/accounts
2. Click edit beside multiple sign-in found right at the top

3. Click "On" and then click each of the check boxes below to confirm you understand what your doing and than click save.

4. Once you do this you can go back to your Inbox and at the top right hand corner you will find After you sign into your first account, you can sign in with up to two additional accounts from the new accounts menu in the upper right hand corner of Gmail, then easily toggle back and forth between them. You can even open multiple Gmail tabs — one for each of your accounts.

5. You can turn this feature off at any time. By going through the same procedure and click "Off - use one Google Account at a time".

Note from Google

Please keep in mind that this is a feature for advanced users, and there are a couple things to watch out for:

1) Not all Google services 
support multiple account sign-in yet. For the services that don't support it (like Blogger and Picasa Web Albums), you'll be defaulted to the first account you signed in with during that browser session. So if you click a link from Gmail to Blogger, for example, you'll be logged into Blogger with the first account you signed in with, even if you clicked the link to Blogger from your second Gmail account.

2) We’re still working on making Gmail and Calendar work offline with multiple sign-in. If you rely on offline access, you probably don't want to enable this feature quite yet.

3) Multiple account sign-in only works on desktop browsers for now, so if you use Gmail on your phone's browser you won't see this option yet.

Since Google Apps customers can already sign in to their accounts at the same time as their personal Google Accounts, we won’t be adding this new feature to Google Apps until the 
new infrastructure is in place.

If you use more than one Google Account, we hope this makes you more efficient. If you have any questions, check out our 
help center.
