    Has anyone worked out best way to handle multiple google accounts?

    For example, when the Youtube app loads, it shows my subscriptions but my daughters would like to access their accounts and favourites? Only way we have found so far is to use Youtube on mobile, and then Cast to the Aura.

    Any suggestions?

    On my 4000t, if I open YouTube and scroll left (to the sidebar) at the top of the page is an icon with my username next to it. If I scroll up and highlight that the accounts list appears, with options to sign in as guest or to add account.
    It's here that you will choose who logs in.

    I would think that the app on the Aura will have the same.

    On the Aura, the only option is to sign out of one account and sign into another account. Doesn't seem to be able to connect to multiple accounts.

    I think that the casting method is by far the best way anyway. Much easier to control things on the phone or tablet touchscreen than faffing about with a remote control.

    Not a big fan of the TV and PVR trying to be smarter than it is capable of when there is already a much better alternative.

    (don't have an Aura but do have a Chromecast dongle)
