+I've just renamed my 11 year old GSuite (formerly Google Apps) account so that I
10
+can recreate the account as a standard Google account. Here's how it's gone so
11
+far.
12
+
13
+## The Basics
14
+
15
+I was able to rename the GSuite account (which is the only admin account), which
16
+creates an alias for the old email address. Deleting the alias freed up the
17
+email for a new Google account, which I created through the Google home page.
18
+
19
+My Android phone immediately complained about backups stopping and a few other
20
+things.
21
+
22
+## Google Voice
23
+
24
+I was able to transfer my Google Voice number over to the new account. For some
25
+reason it wouldn't work until I opened the Google Voice site on the new account.
26
+(I didn't set up a new number on the new account, as I believe that makes the
27
+new account ineligible for transfer.)
28
+
29
+The phone number (my carrier number) wouldn't verify as a text message. I had to
30
+use the "call my phone" verification process.
31
+
32
+## YouTube
33
+
34
+I lost all my Liked videos (which you can't export) and subscriptions. Annoying.
35
+
36
+## Google Play Store
37
+
38
+I don't yet understand the full extent of this. Presumably any apps I purchased
39
+under the GSuite account will continue to be associated with that account, and
40
+I'll have to sign into GSuite to download those apps in the future.
