Using the Google Play Store is pretty straightforward: you pop it open, search to the app you need to download and install this on your device. That’s about all there is to it.
But what results if you move to a different country? You’ll need access to the proper account of the Play Store for billing information. And Google Play features many apps for various regions, which can sometimes provide or block access to specific apps.
Whether you’ve newly moved or want to try entering another country’s Play Store (which comes with a big alert), here’s how to change your country setting in Google Play
How To change Your country in The Google Play Store
- Open the Play Store app at your Android device.
- Slide-out the left menu and picked Account.
- If you have entrance to the country-switching choice, you’ll see a Country and profiles listing on this menu.
- Tap this Country category also select your new country. Continue through the prompts to add an original payment method as your current state, if needed.
- Review the warning prompt and allow the change. Once you’ve switched countries, you’re immediately able to browse the Play Store for that country. The difference may take up to 24 hours to go in effect.
This option won’t look for everyone. It only shows up if you were before in a different country than you are now (based on IP address). This proposes you can’t just switch your Play Store to any country that you think like.
If you do the Google Play Family Library feature, you also won’t see the opportunity to change your Play Store region. Note that you don’t want to use this process to update Google Play services—you can do this using other methods.
