How to Change Location in Play Store

Are you an Android user who wants to access region-specific apps or explore content from a different country on Play Store? Look no further! Whether you prefer using a VPN or updating your Google account settings, we have you covered.

Using a VPN to Change Location

Changing your location in Play Store can be achieved by using a Virtual Private Network (VPN). Follow these simple steps:

  1. Install a reputable VPN app from Play Store onto your Android device.
  2. Launch the VPN app and follow the on-screen instructions to set it up.
  3. Connect to a server located in the country who has Play Store you wish to access.
  4. Once the connection is established, open Play Store app.

When you connect to a VPN server, your device’s IP address is masked, giving the impression that you’re accessing Play Store from the country where the server is located. This enables you to browse and download region-specific apps.

Changing Location via Google Account Settings

Another way to change your location in Play Store involves updating your Google account settings.

  1. Open your favorite Web browser and navigate to
  2. Sign in using the Google account linked to your Android device.
  3. Find the “Data & personalization” tab and tap “Location history“.
  4. Enable “Location history” by toggling the switch to the “On” position.
  5. Scroll down to this tab “Manage activity” and click it.
  6. In the top-right corner, click on the three vertical dots and select “Settings and privacy.”
  7. Under the “General” tab, click on “Location” and update your location to the desired country.
  8. Save the changes.

Clearing Play Store Data

You can change your Play Store location or reset the app by following these steps:

  1. Open the “Settings” tab using your Android mobile device.
  2. Scroll down the screen and choose “Applications.”
  3. Locate and tap on “Google Play Store” from the list of installed apps.
  4. Tap on the “Storage” tab.
  5. Select “Clear storage” or “Clear data.”
  6. Confirm your action when prompted.

Clearing Play Store data will essentially reset the app and allow it to detect your location based on your current IP address.

It’s important to note that changing your location in Play Store may have limitations. Some apps and content may still be restricted based on licensing agreements and regional availability.

Additionally, using VPNs or changing your location in Google account settings may have implications on other services that rely on location information.
