Create, Add, or Remove a Google Account on an Android Device
Edited by Jay
As an Android user, you need a working Google account to do pretty much anything. In fact, all Google's services (the Play Store, Gmail, etc. )require an active account. There are times when you may wish to create a new account, perhaps for work, school, or to use with specific services only. Whatever the reason, being able to create a new Google account quickly can prove handy in numerous instances.
In addition to creating a new Google account, there may come times when you want to add or remove an existing account from your Android-powered device. The good news is, Android makes adding and removing accounts pretty painless.
In the following VisiHow tutorial, we're going to walk through the steps for creating, adding, and removing a Google account with an Android device. For this guide, we used a Google Pixel running Android 8.1.0.
