  • Sorry I've already tried this but changing the account setting on the web doesn't change the user name in gmail even if I close the gmail app and open it back up. Is it a cache problem? Will this get fixed as time goes by our something? Thanks. – Jack Maddington Jun 19 '16 at 21:49

    Try to synchronize this account or remove it and add again. – Άνδρας Jun 20 '16 at 7:42
  • Ok, it got updated after a few minutes, no need to remove and couldn't see an option to synchronize. – Jack Maddington Jun 20 '16 at 10:35
