To change your email address, follow these steps:

Step 1: Check if you can change it
First, you need to check whether you have the option to change your email address. On your Android phone or tablet, go to your device’s Settings app and find the Google section. From there, select “Manage your Google Account.” This will take you to your account settings.

Step 2: Navigate to Personal info
Once you are in your Google Account settings, tap on “Personal info.” This section allows you to view and modify various personal details associated with your account, including your email address.

Step 3: Edit your email address
In the “Personal info” section, you will see your current email address listed. To change it, tap on the “Edit” option next to your email address. This will open a dialog box or a new page where you can enter the new email address you want to use.

Step 4: Enter the new email address
In the provided field, enter the new email address you wish to change to. Make sure to double-check the spelling and ensure that the new email address is available and not already associated with another account.

Step 5: Save the changes
After entering the new email address, review the information and make any necessary adjustments. Once you are satisfied, tap on the “Save” or “Update” button to save the changes. Your email address should now be successfully changed.

It’s important to note that changing your email address may have various implications, such as affecting your access to certain services or requiring you to update your email information with other accounts or platforms. It’s advisable to update your email address on any other accounts or services associated with your previous email to ensure a smooth transition.

Please keep in mind that the specific steps may vary slightly depending on the version of Android and the device you are using. However, the overall process should be similar.
