I'm using Gmail, Google Reader, calendar, Picasaweb and other services.

I've decide to change my Google ID. And I am moving Gmail data first (via POP3), but it is a very hard job. I'm afraid to move other services' data. Does Google supports migrating from one account to another?

It is not currently possible to merge Google accounts, but it can be done on a per product basis. Otherwise, you will need to find workarounds that are not official Google protocol.

I don't believe it's currently possible to transfer Picasa-web contents: your only option would be to use Takeout to download the contents, and then re-upload them. This would, of course, change the URLs of all your photos.

Updating this one year later: I believe it is now possible to transfer album ownership. However I have yet to investigate the impacts of Google's shift toward using Photos+ instead of PWA whenever possible. – MaryC.fromNZ Mar 7 '13 at 15:53
