Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I don't see an option anywhere though, perhaps some hack.

If not, can this be a feature request?

Why? I don't think you're really supposed to have multiple Google accounts in the first place. In what kind of scenario would this make sense? – Pëkka Nov 2 '11 at 9:51

Users could have two Google accounts, one from Google Apps, and one as individual account. Maybe the user want to log in with the Google Apps account from work, and with the individual account when at home. I cannot say how much users are in the same condition, though. – kiamlaluno Nov 2 '11 at 10:10
    
There may be the case where a user has two accounts and now wants to merge both accounts that both use google openid to log in. – ikwyl6 Oct 3 '12 at 1:45

It's possible. Head over to your profile -> Click on Edit Profile & Settings -> Click on My Logins -> Add More Logins. Now select Google, and proceed to login to Google with the preferred Google profile. This will be added to Stack Exchange as one of the available logins.


As Rebecca mentions in a comment below: Be sure you log out of your Google Accounts first!

Make sure that before you do this, you log out of any Google accounts, otherwise it'll skip prompting you for credentials and pick up the logged in account automatically. – Rebecca Chernoff Nov 2 '11 at 13:32
    
Make sure to log out off chrome, too! – Joseph K. Strauss Apr 5 at 18:21

@JosephK.Strauss Care to clarify that statement? When logging in to anything with Google, using a different account than the one I'm logged into Chrome with, I've never had to log out of Chrome. (And this is a near daily occurrence for me.) – Kendra Apr 5 at 20:30
    
@JosephK.Strauss you can't log out of Chrome. It's just a browser. – Shadow Wizard Apr 5 at 20:30
    
@ShadowWizard I assume, as someone constantly logged in to Chrome myself, they mean logging in to or out of a profile on Chrome. Of course, this still shouldn't have any effect on logging in to Stack Exchange with a different Google account. – Kendra Apr 5 at 20:32
    
@Kendra maybe this? – Shadow Wizard Apr 5 at 20:35
    
@ShadowWizard That's actually exactly what I meant myself, and what I assumed they meant. – Kendra Apr 5 at 20:36
    
Just to say why I approved it... I thought that logging out of Chrome *could * help because being logged in might cause Chrome to think you are logged in to your account.... – ᔕᖺᘎᕊ Apr 5 at 20:51
    
@ᔕᖺᘎᕊ well, back when this answer was posted I don't think Chrome had Profiles, so a new answer explaining it's possible to have multiple profiles, each with different SE account attached to it, might be better than changing this existing answer, which is about a single Chrome "instance" as far as I can tell. – Shadow Wizard Apr 5 at 20:54

@ᔕᖺᘎᕊ I can confirm that's not the case, so the rollback was justified, but that's a reasonable assumption to make. I can be completely logged out of the Google account that I'm logged in to Chrome with and not be considered by anything relevant to be logged in to Chrome. – Kendra Apr 5 at 20:57
