How to I turn on the Party Mode in a Google+ Event?

Can’t turn on the Party Mode on a Google+ Event? No checkbox?

If you have a checkbox, the answer is supplied by Google here:

If that doesn’t work, come back here and read the following.

If you have more than one Google account on your device, that may be the problem.

I had my own account, syncing everything on my Android device. But I also had my wife’s Google account on the device — to let her get email when she wanted to. Somehow, when I tried to go into party mode, Google thought I was her. My phone was set to AutoUpload my pictures via my Google account.  Not hers.

That’s why there was no checkbox evident. Solving this required I switch from being her to being me.

To switch users on Google+:

  1. Select the Menu icon
  2. Select the small down-arrow (down carrot) next to the name of the active user
  3. Select the new user

Google+ should then allow you to enter the Party Mode on your Google+ Event.
