Hello everyone,

My job uses G-Suite and it's been a pain in the ***.

If I wanna add Hangouts Chat to my phone, Google/Android forces me to add my entire G-Suite Admin account to my phone. Then my emails are now in Gmail (which I loathe) and my contacts are now syncing, etc.

Is there a way I can prevent this.

Hell even going to Gmail.com to check my work mail via Chrome makes me attach my entire account to my Android phone.

I do not want my work account in my personal phone, I just want parts of it on my personal phone.

Even when turning off "Sync" in account settings the mail in my inbox and calendar appointments etc show up and the option of using Gmails "All Inbox" becomes useless.

Anyway to not do this?

Go to the Gmail app and remove all the accounts.

"I do not want my work account in my personal phone, I just want parts of it on my personal phone. " It doesn't work that way, you either add an account or you don't. You can remove some accounts from some apps, but if the account is added to the phone, it's added to the phone..

So I can't use Hangouts Chat or check my work email from gmail.com without having to add my work account to my personal phone?

That's so stupid
