How to Change Country in Play Store

If you are looking to change the country in Play Store, you are in luck because you have at least three options to do it. Here are the options that will aid you in your endeavor.

Changing Country via Play Store Settings

The most common way to change your country in Play Store is by updating your account settings.

How to Change Country in Play Store

  1. Open Play Store app on your Android mobile phone or tablet.
  2. Tap the 3 horizontal lines in the top-left corner of your screen in order to open the side menu.
  3. Scroll down and select “Account” or “Account Settings.”
  4. Tap the “Country and profiles” or an option similar to this.
  5. Select the country you want to change to from the list provided.
  6. Follow instructions presented on screen to complete the process.

Note: The availability of the “Country and profiles” option may vary depending on your device and Play Store version. If you don’t see this option, proceed to Method 2.

Changing Country via Google Account Settings

If the previous method doesn’t work or you want to change the country associated with your entire Google account, you can do so through your account settings. Here’s how:

  • Open a Web browser and go to the link
  • Sign in using Google account being linked to your Android mobile devices.
  • Search “Personal info & privacy” and click the “Your personal info.” tab
  • Find the “Contact info” section by scrolling down and clicking on “Home address” or “Current location.”
  • Update your address to reflect the new country you want to associate with your account.
  • Save the changes and wait for them to propagate across your Google account.

Once you’ve updated your address in your Google account settings, Play Store will automatically reflect the new country. However, keep in mind that some content may still be restricted based on licensing agreements and regional availability.

If you want to access apps and content specific to another country temporarily, you can use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to change your device’s IP address. Here’s how:

  1. Install a reliable VPN app you can download from Play Store.
  2. Open the VPN app and follow the on-screen instructions to set it up.
  3. Connect to a server located in the country you want to switch to.
  4. Once connected, go to Play Store app and check if the country has been updated.
  5. If necessary, clear the cache and data of Play Store app, or force stop the app, then reopen it.

Using a VPN allows you to bypass geographical restrictions and access content from different regions. Please be aware though that violating terms of service or licensing agreements may result in restrictions or account suspension.
