How to remove devices from Google Play

When we register devices in Google Play, they are automatically saved in a list. This feature is very useful when we install apps directly from the website. However, over time, devices that we no longer use accumulate and that can be uncomfortable. Can these devices be removed from the Google Play list? The answer is no, oddly enough. The only way to remove them from the list is to not use those devices, as phones and tablets that you haven’t used for more than a year will automatically disappear from the list. However, you can hide them.

Here’s how to do it from a phone or tablet, but you’ll have to go to the website as there’s no option for that in the app. Once on the page, tap the three stripes icon in the top left corner.

A list of all your devices connected to Google Play will appear. Go to the column Visibility (visibility) and uncheck the Show in menus option for each device you don’t want to appear in the install list.

Installing Google Play applications on your devices directly from the Google Play website is very convenient. From this page we can install apps on each of our terminals. However, over time we can accumulate some that no longer work or that we don’t even have. You’ll notice that we can’t delete devices from the list, either from the drop-down menu that appears when we install an app from PC, nor from the list we mentioned in the previous steps. To improve the speed and visibility of the web version of Google Play, the only immediate option is to hide it.
