Android 5.0 "Lollipop" - how to change Google Account password?

Hi Experts,

My Samsung Galaxy S4 phone is running Android 5.0 "Lollipop".

I have changed my Google Account password, but cannot figure out how to enter the new password in my phone settings.

I don't have a lollipop phone near me now, but can't you change it in settings -> accounts -> google account?
Otherwise, try to install an app from the play store, it should check your password there and most likely give an opportunity to enter your password again. You could also try to reboot your phone and wait for a password error on your google account.

In order to change password you need to change it from PC and then resync your phone.
