How to Change Email id in Google Business?

Changing the ownership of the google business account is a simple and authentic process. You can add/delete an owner/manager using their Gmail ids. Let me explain how you can change user settings to have complete control over your Google business profile. 

    What are Google My Business User Roles?

    Google business listing has four types of user roles as follows:

    1. Primary Owner - Having one primary owner per google business account is a mandatory requirement. The user must transfer the role to another user before leaving this particular position. 
    2. Owners - You can assign multiple owners to a google business listing. The owners have capabilities over all the functionalities of the business. 
    3. Managers - The capabilities of managers are up to managing the business. They can neither change the users nor remove the business listing. 
    4. Site managers - They are similar to branch managers who can handle the business of only a particular branch. 

    The users can use their email ids as their unique identity for handling google business profile. 

    You can find the comprehensive details of user-roles on the 'Google My Business Help' page.
