changing google/email account for music

Community Member

Hi -

I have several speakers/display in Home which were all set up using my gmail account. My wife's account all has manager access to this Home. 

I would like to use my wife's account to play music because she has YouTube premium. However, it continues to use the free YouTube Music (presumably from my account). Is there a way to force Google Assistant to use her account when I ask to play music?

Thanks in advance for your help.


Step 1: Check if you can change it
On your Android phone or tablet, open your device's Settings app and then Google and then Manage your Google Account.
At the top, tap Personal info.
Under "Contact info," tap Email.
Tap Google Account email. If you can't open this setting, it might not be possible to change your email or username.
If your account's email address ends in Gmail. com, you usually can't change it.
If you're using a Google Account through your work, school, or other group, ask your administrator for help.
Important: If you use Sign in with Google for non-Google sites or Chrome Remote Desktop to connect remotely, view this info before you change your email address.

Step 2: Change it
Next to your email address, select Edit Edit.
Enter the new email address for your account. Choose one that isn't already used by another Google Account.
If you're having trouble, get help changing your email address.
Follow the steps on the screen.
We'll send an email with a verification link to your new email address. You'll need to open the email and click the link. If you don't get the email, try fixing the problem.

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately this wasn't an option for me. I had to unlink/reset all the speakers & displays and rejoined the home with my wife's email address. We can now all play music on them without ads.
