I need to give my Nexus 7 a unique name
« on: February 24, 2013, 12:58:23 PM »
Since I've got 2 Nexus 7's in my household, every time I go to download an app, both of them show up in the drop down menu, and I end up having to download every item twice and then delete it from the Nexus I don't want it on, because in the drop down menu my phone comes up and Nexus 7 comes up twice.

How can I give my 2 Nexus 7's unique names so that I don't have to do this anymore?After I've given them unique names, will the play store and computers and even my Cerberus automatically note the name change? Or will they simply not recognize the devices anymore?

Ok, after a lot of searching, I figured it out, I did it through the google store page on my computer.

I would think using a different email address.

Robinfinity, could you post a how-to so other users can do this if they need too.

Thanks.

In Google Play store click on the cog icon on the top right corner and open your My Order & Settings.
Once there just go to Settings chose the device and click Edit.
