For iPhone users, please follow this guide instead —

This guide will come in handy for those of you moving to a different country, trying to redeem a Google Play Rewards Card from a different region or downloading an app only available in a specific area.

If you get a warning such as:

Create a new google account within Israel, then add it to your android phone. Now you can have one account for within Israel… and keep your existing account.

  • On your Android phone or tablet, open the Google Play Store app Google Play.
  • Tap Menu and then Account.
  • Under “Country and profiles,” find your name and country.
    If you don’t have a payment method from the new country, follow the onscreen instructions to add a payment method. This creates a new Google Payments profile linked to the new country.
  • The first payment method must be from the country you’re adding a profile for.
  • Once you create the profile, you can add payment methods from other countries.
  • The Google Play Store automatically changes to the new country. It can take up to 24 hours to change.
