The Google Play Store is full of mysteries, and we are here to give you some tips and tricks to keep in mind when using the Store next time.
You can swipe to open the Play Store menu
You can get the Play Store menu in two ways. The first one is by tapping on the 3 bars icon, that’s placed on the top left. But did you know that you can do that even more faster? All you need to do is just swipe from the left side of the display. This one will get you to various sections of the Store, and to your own account settings.
You can manage your apps
The service has a section called My apps & games. You can see which apps you’ve downloaded, which apps are pre-loaded, and the one that you need to update.
First of all, you need to open up the Google Play Store and open the menu from those three horizontal lines placed at the top left of your screen. Then, under the Apps & Games sections, there is the My apps and & games section. By tapping there, you’ll get a list of your installed apps.
There, you’ll also find a button with Update All, placed at the top right-hand corner of your screen. From the All section, you can do whatever you want with your apps.
You can install an app that is not available in your country
If you really want to get an app, but that specific app is not available in your country, then you can still get it, but you will need to use a VPN. VPN stands for “virtual private network,” and it offers you a secure internet connection through private networks. It makes it look like you’re accessing the Internet from a different location. Always make sure you’re choosing one that’s reliable.
After you have downloaded a VPN, select the country’s Play Store that you want to access, make the VPN run, and open the app. It should show you the homepage of the app from the country that you selected.
