The Chrome OS feature that allows users to log into multiple Google accounts at the same time was first spotted in September last year. This feature has been in development over the past few months and it has now gone live in the Canary channel. This suggests that the feature may soon be rolled out to the public.
The latest Canary version of Chrome OS brings the multiple account support feature that was first spotted last year. It didn’t quite work at that point in time but now it does.
The setting to add new accounts can be found under the People menu of the Settings app. Once authenticated, users will be able to take advantage of this feature in Android apps as well as for authentication on websites that allow logins with Google credentials. The feature doesn’t seem to bring support for multiple Chrome profiles, though, but it remains to be seen if Google will eventually add that as well.
It’s unclear at this point in time when this feature will be rolled out to all Chrome OS users. However, given that it’s now in the Canary channel, it may not be long before this feature arrives for all Chrome OS users.
