How do I use a different Google email account?


I signed up by error with an older email address. I need the Mac app to let me log in with a different Gmail email address, the one with which I purchased a premium account today. But every time I log out and attempt to sign in again, the Mac app uses the erroneous Gmail account (the one which doesn't have the premium). Obviously I want to use my premium Gmail address, but the Mac app doesn't give me that option.

I tried deleting the bad account in Safari and Firefox, but I keep getting Bad Request.

So you have logged out of the Mac App, but then it automatically signs back in? That should not be. There are two options to sign in, with Google, or pass/email combination. Please tell me if that is the case, that it's automatically just signing in, which should not be possible.

As for the accounts, as you are signed into a Free account right now, which I assume is the Gmail account. Though, if you sign out, you should be able to sign in with the one you want.

I went to the webpage and managed to sign out of the free account and sign back in with the premium. When I pulled the Mac app up, it was signed in with premium. Not sure exactly what I did today or missed yesterday, but in any case, I'm good. Thanks for the very prompt reply!
