Why Does the Play Store Say an App Isn't Available in My Country When I Try to Update or Install It?

Environment

  • Google Play Store

Answer

This happens when information on file in the Google Play Store is associated with a location not in the United States.

Additional Notes

You can resolve this by updating the address and country with Google. Reference the Google Help article, Change your home, business, or billing address and country for steps. In some cases, you may need to simply use a new Google account created with a United States location.
