android – Google Play App publishing with two different developer names-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

I have published several Android applications for the Google Play Store through my Google account, but all under my company’s developer name.

Now I want to publish an App under my name with the same user account, but this does not seem to be possible without changing the developer name for all previously published apps? Is it possible to publish Apps under more than one developer name with the same Google account?

The only solution I am seeing at the moment is generating another Google Account to use for my personal Apps, which seems quite silly, and I am hoping there is a better way.

How to solve:

If someone else is wondering I can indeed confirm that this does not seem possible (to have more than one developer name with the same account). If you are in my position you have two possibilities:

  1. Make a new Google account and register as an Android developer then use that account for your new Apps.
  2. Make a new Google account and transfer existing Apps to it via this link.
