How to change the country in the Play Store to Thailand
May 7, 2022
How is changing the country in the Play Store different from changing the country on the site or in GPS
You can change the country in the phone in different ways, depending on the specific task. For example, to change the country for websites, it is enough to use a proxy or VPN.
To change the country for applications using GPS, you can use one of the applications that fake GPS data:
- Mock GPS With Joystick
- Mock Locations
- Fake GPS – ByteRev
- Fake GPS Go Location Spoofer
- GPS Emulator – RosTeam
- Fake GPS Location – Hola
- Fake GPS Location – Lexa
But neither GPS spoofing nor using a VPN will change the country in the Play Store, Google's mobile app repository for Android phones.
Why you need to change the country in the Play Store to Thailand
Some applications are available only in certain countries, or, on the contrary, are available in all countries with the exception of some. That is, by changing your country in the Play Store, a slightly different set of applications becomes available for you to install. However, most apps are equally available in all countries and you may not notice any difference when you change the country in the Play Store.
Also, depending on the country in the Play Store, the available payment methods for purchasing applications in the Play Store may vary.
For me, before changing the country in the Play Store to Thailand, some applications for online banking, as well as applications for communication (LINE, WeChat), were not available.
Restrictions on changing the country of the Play Store
You can change the country no more than once a year. If you just created an account (payment profile), then you also need to wait 12 months before you can change your country.
After changing the country, you cannot undo the changes made, since you can return to the previous country in a year.
To change the country you must be in the new country and have a payment method in it.
If you change your country to Thailand in order to access LINE, WeChat, and other apps only available in Thailand, you may lose access to apps that are only available in your country (government services apps, online banking, local stores, etc.) ).

Why is the country change not available in the Play Store?
The option to change country may not be available in the Play Store. This may be for the following reasons:
1. Over the past year, you have already changed the country
2. You are not currently in a new country, this is based on your IP address.
3. You are part of the Google Play Family Library.
