Google account is integrated with all Android devices and you can sign in with as many accounts as you want. However, the default account decides how you log in to most of the apps, especially Google apps. We’ll show you how to change your default Google Account on Android.
It’s quite easy to add multiple Google accounts to your device, but the default account is the one that you used when you set up the device. So if you are also using more than one account on your phone, you’ll need to sign out and remove the previous account to change the default one.

Once you remove the previous account, it will set the second account as the default. After that, you can again sign back into the first account. Let’s see how to do it.

The default account will now be removed from your device.
6] Tap the back arrow in the top-left corner to go back to the Google settings.
