Gmail: Sign-in with multiple accounts using Google Account Chooser

Gmail already had the ability to use multiple accounts. Meaning that is you had different accounts maybe one for work and one for home. You could switch between these accounts once you log-in to Gmail. Google Account Chooser however is different - with this new feature you can now use your Gmail with multiple accounts. These accounts could either be Gmail accounts or any other accounts. Using Google Account Chooser means you do not have to log in and log-out of each account. You can sign-up and add all you accounts and switch between them whenever you want. You can set it to remember your login ID and password and when you access Gmail all you need to do is to choose the account you want to use at the current time.

This is an opt-in feature that has been quietly released by Google and you can choose to enable or disable Account Chooser at any time. This is good for people who use multiple Gmail and mail accounts and takes away the headache of signing out and singing in with other accounts. You can now combine all your mail accounts be it work or home and use a single Gmail page to get all your work done. Remember to opt for the stay signed-in option, so the next time you want to log-in with a different account all you need is to click on the account you want to use.
