I don't use gmail for my e-mail. However I want to use the gmail app for my work e-mail. So how do I keep only my work e-mail in the gmail app, removing the gmail account from it completely?

I still want to have play store and google Fi to be associated with my account. To my understanding when I try to remove gmail account from the gmail app it suggests to completely remove my google account from the phone.

I'm on android 9.

  • Using a Google app without using the Google service it belongs to is not an intended use case by Google. – Robert May 3 '19 at 17:03
  • If you do Clear data on Gmail app from Settings app, and restart the Gmail app it asks you to select account. Ignore the Google account and add your non-Google account there. Might work. – Firelord May 3 '19 at 17:20
  • I think you can add it as a secondary email, why is it specifically important to remove the other email ? – Gadget Guru May 10 '19 at 3:57
