Google Docs Rolls Out Account Awareness With New Account Switcher / Google


It is pretty common for people to have multiple Google accounts. For example, you could potentially have an account that is meant for personal use, one account to stay in touch with family members and a separate account for work related purposes.

It’s fair to say that you would probably want these accounts to remain more or less separate. At the very least you are going to want to keep your work account separate, because making edits to work documents on Google Docs, Sheets or Slides using a personal account could be rather embarrassing since it would reveal details about your personal life that you might not want your work colleagues knowing about.

includes a new account switcher, and part of the package is a new “account awareness” tool that is going to tell you what account you are currently using when you have opened up a document to edit it. This will help you quickly switch accounts if you happen to be using the wrong one in a particular instance, something that could save you from a lot of potential embarrassment in the long run.

This is part of Google’s effort to streamline its various properties, similar to the that you are soon going to see on Android phones. Google is making its properties smoother, cleaner and overall more cognizant of the average user’s experience which is a heartening sign that may prove to be game changing in the near future.
