There are many situations that may make you think to change country in the Google Play Store. For example, move to another country, some of your favorite apps are not available in your current play store, you want to use another local payment method.


Things to consider before changing country in the Google Play Store

To change country in Android Google Play Store, you must be in the country or use an IP address of the country you want to be in (a VPN connection is a secure method that you can use if you plan to change your IP address to another country).

Your Google Play Store credit will disappear and you will need to add new payment information.

You will not be able to access your apps that are subject to country restrictions.

In Google Play Store, you can make this change once a year.

Not all apps are available in all countries. In other words, some applications will not be available in the new Google Play Store country you are switching to.

The warranties on apps, games, and others will not be valid in all countries.
