Google Account Switcher - Alfred Workflow

An Alfred workflow to switch between Google/GSuite accounts on Google websites (Gmail, Drive, Calendar) with keyboard shortcuts.



  • Supports switching between upto 3 Google accounts with keyboard shortcuts (configurable)
  • Supports Gmail, Drive & Calendar but may support other google apps as well, try it!


P.S.: You need to buy the Powerpack to use this workflow.

🛠 Setup:

Setup the accounts: Setup the google accounts in environment variables like :

Then, setup the keyboard shortcuts for each of the accounts, say

..and that's it. Use these shortcuts to switch between google accounts on gmail/google-drive/google-calendar websites in the browser's active tab.

🌐 Supported Browsers

  • Safari
  • Google Chrome
  • Google Chrome Canary
  • Opera
  • Vivaldi
  • Brave Browser

🗒 Note

  • You must be logged in with the aforementioned accounts already. Which of the 3 accounts you log into first has no effect on the way the workflow functions.
  • The 'active' tab in the browser must have the gmail/drive/calendar website opened for the keyboard shortcuts to work.
  • Firefox not supported, for now, sorry! This is why.
  • Please reach out if you need other Chrome/Safari based browsers supported.
