Reinstall and re-enable apps

You can use apps that you bought on Google Play on any Android device without paying again. However, each device must have the same Google Account on it. You can:

  • Install an app on more than one Android device
  • Install an app on a new Android device
  • Reinstall an app that you bought but deleted

Also, if you turned off an app that came with your device, you can turn it back on.

  2. Tap Menu Menu and then My apps & games and then Library.
  3. Tap the app that you want to install or turn on.
  4. Tap Install or Enable.
