How to Update and Change Currency Settings in Google Play Store App

  1. Open the Google Play Store app on your Android device
  2. Tap on the profile icon (3 horizontal lines icon) in the top right corner
  3. Select “Settings”
  4. Choose “General” -> “Account and device preferences”
  5. Tap on “Country and profiles”
  6. Select the country where you want to add an account
  • If you do not already have a payment method for the new country, you will need to add it first
  1. Follow the on-screen instructions to add a payment method for that country

It can take up to 48 hours for your profile to update with the new country and currency.

When you travel, your country and currency don’t automatically change. You have to manually change your Google Play country as described above.

Some key points:

  • You can only change your Google Play country once per year
  • When you change countries, you won’t be able to access some books, apps, movies, TV shows, or other content that were available in your previous country
  • You won’t be able to use any existing Google Play balance from your previous country in the new country

I hope this summary helps explain the key steps and considerations around updating your currency settings in the Google Play Store app. Let me know if you have any other questions!
