Looking for tools to keep your child organized and connected? Google apps can help! With Gmail, Google Drive, and Google Calendar, your child can chat with friends and teachers, take notes, and stay on top of their schedule. And with Pinwheel phones, accessing these apps is a breeze once you sign in to a Google account.
Before being able to use any Google app, you must first set it up on your Pinwheel device.
Swipe up from the home screen and access apps list, locate the Pinwheel Settings app, and open it.
Unlock Parental Controls: Tap the lock icon at the upper right of the screen and enter your Caregiver login credentials.
Open Google Login.
Sign in to your child’s Google account.
You’ll be redirected back to the Pinwheel Settings page once you’re done. Just exit out of the app and you should be able to access Google apps on your Pinwheel phone with ease!
You can only sign in to your Pinwheel phone using a regular Google account. However, child accounts that are under your Family Link account, including for individuals under 13 years old, can’t be added.
Similarly, school-issued Google accounts may require additional permissions in order to add them to your Pinwheel phone. Please contact your school email administrator for help.
