Reinstall apps & games

When you download a paid or free app on Google Play, the app is connected to your Google Account. This means you can reinstall downloaded apps to new or reset devices without purchasing them again.

Find and download your apps

Using your mobile device
  1. Open the Google Play Store app Google Play.
  2. Touch the Menu icon Google Play Store Menu Icon > My Apps > All.
  3. Select an app you'd like to install, then touch Install or Enable.
Using your computer
  1. Visit your My Apps page on Google Play.
  2. Select an app to view its detail page.
  3. Click the button that says Install or Installed.
  4. Select the device where you'd like to install the app.
    • When an app shows an "Installed" button on its detail page, the app is installed on one of the devices associated with your Google Account.
  5. Click Install.

If your device drop-down says "No eligible devices for app install," the app has already been installed on all devices associated with your account.

Can't find previously purchased or downloaded apps

If you can't find an app you previously purchased or you're being asked to purchase an app that you already bought on Google Play, make sure you're signed in to the same account as when you made your purchase.

  1. Open the Google Play Store app Google Play.
