The Google Play Store comes pre-installed on all Samsung Android devices. On most devices, the Google Play Store will be visible on the home screen or within the Apps. However, it is good to know that some smartphones locked in some networks will have the Google Play Store app stores somewhere in a folder called Google (this folder comes with other pre-installed Google apps, such as Google Maps).
In order to move the Google Play Store out of the Google folder, you will just need to touch the folder to open it and after that tap and hold on the Google Play Store to drag it out from the folder to your home screen. You can do the same thing for all other useful applications that are inside that folder that you want to access faster and easier in the future.
Enabling Google Play Store
If, for some reason, you can’t find the Google Play Store, then you should know that since the application comes pre-installed, it doesn’t have an option to be deleted, so it’s probably hidden somewhere. However, the official Android store can be disabled and this is the reason why you will need to enable it in order to be able to see it.
To enable the Google Play Store you will need to do the followings:
- Select Apps
- Select Settings
- Select Application Manager (scroll down if you can’t find it)
- Select Disabled
- Search for Google Play Store, tap on it and finally select “Enable”.
Once you do this, you should be able to find the Google Play Store in your Home Screen or Apps. Now, click on the icon and start looking for apps or games.
What are your thoughts about the Google Play Store? Are you using the official Android store to install/update the apps and games?
