Say that your main Android account is account1@gmail.com. Can you set up Android Chrome to use account2@gmail.com?

(Ideally Chrome would allow multiple users, which will no doubt happen in Android too eventually.)

    "Use" in what way? For synchronization?

  • Yes, in terms of synchronization. I have read in the meantime that under Jelly Bean Chrome has become the default browser for Android, so I very much doubt it now. Oct 5 '12 at 17:59

Launch Chrome

  • In the overflow menu, choose Settings
  • Under basics, tap the entry for your account
  • Disconnect the account; you'll be warned that the data will remain but you'll lose your synchronization
  • Tap Sign in to Chrome at the bottom of the screen
  • Choose the account you want to use for synchronizing

Obviously for this to work you will need to have already added the account to your phone.

  • Thanks Al! I don't yet have a 4.x Android device, but this possibility is a must for me. Thanks again. Oct 7 '12 at 20:26
