Having browsed the web for possibilities to access multiple Google Drive accounts from my MacBook, iPad and/or iPhone I have concluded that it seems to be an impossibility to install Google Drive more than once for different accounts. For your Mac, there are paid solutions for this but the most simple and inexpensive one (free) is this one and works for all devices. I’m assuming you’ve got one main Google Drive account, for which you’ve installed the app on your device(s), and another one which you’d like to access from the your main account.
- Make a folder in your main drive called ‘My other Google Drive’ (or whatever you’d like to call it)
- On your other Google Drive, share your folder(s) with yourself (your main account) and adjust it so you ‘Can edit’
- On your main account, go to ‘Shared with me’ and drag this folder (or these folders) to the folder you just made (‘My other Google Drive’)
- That’s it! Enjoy working in your other Google Drives from one app!
