How to change the Country Region of App Store and Google Play Store

Sometimes, we visit App Store and CH Play to download applications or games but cannot find applications to download. This is because the app is not in a region or a supported Country where you registered your account. Therefore, it would be that best for users to transfer App Store and Android addresses from your country to other countries for downloading the application or game you want.

Changing the Country area will be done right on your device without creating a new account, or installing any other supporting applications. If you do not know how to do it, please follow the instructions of GAMEFLASH.VN below:


• Open Play Store on Android devices.

• Slide the menu to the left and select Account.

• If you have the right to access the country conversion option, you will see the Country and profiles in this menu.

• Click on this Country category and select a new country; continue to follow the prompts to add a new payment method for your current country if it is needed.

• Review the warning reminder and accept the changes. Once you have changed the country, you can now browse Play Store for that area. Changes may take up to 24 hours to take effect.

• Not everyone has the option to change this country. This option is only displayed if you were previously in a country (based on IP address). This means you cannot simply transfer Play Store to any country you want.

• If you use the Family Library feature on Google Play, you also won’t see Play Store area change option.


Note: When changing the location in your Play Store, you must be aware of a few important points, including:

• First, you can no longer use the old payment method. Instead, you must use a new method in the country where you live. After the conversion, you also cannot spend the remaining balance in Google Play from the old country, including any gift cards you have not used, as well as the credits earned from the Google Opinion Awards.

• The second, gamers can only change the country in their Play Store once a year. You can access the same menu again to change it back to the old country after this time. Because of all this, you should only change the country in Play Store if you actually move to a new country and plan to stay at least one year. Although you can do this by using a VPN, it is not worth doing just to access a few other applications. You will be “locked” into Play Store outside your resident for a while. This will be an unpleasant experience.

Instead, you should try to use the best Google Play alternatives to find apps that are not available on Play Store. We will try to update you as much as possible, so you can confidently fix when an issue comes to your account.
