    For two Google accounts on Android, first one through Settings, next one through Gmail app?

    Would it be necessary if putting TWO Google accounts onto android device, the first one is added through Settings, but the second/third/next one must be added through the Gmail app? This should be an unnecessary question, but I tried doing a search on it anyway. I found a small number of YouTube videos, and also two webpage articles.

    I found these to be interesting:

    https://android.stackexchange.com/qu...google-account


    My best thought is that just one single Google account would be enough (at least for now). Beyond just one account, the first account would be for ME and the next account may be for a user who may share the device with me, so as to have an email account dedicated to that user.

    Just as you say, as like "Method 1" described here:

    I just was not sure, because of so many discussing the use of GMail app to add the next accounts.

    On a given Android device, any Google app can be used to select between existing Google accounts already appearing in Settings>Accounts, or can be used to add a Google account you've already got (usually by accessing the aforementioned Settings>Accounts>Add Account area).

    This looks like it would be the most complete answer:
