How to sign in to Google Play

When you turn on a device for the first time or factory reset it, it’s common to set up a Google account associated with the device from scratch. You are then automatically signed in to Google Play with this account. So you just have to follow the first steps of configuring your device, in one of them you will be asked for your credentials and you will be automatically logged in to the store.

However, you may skipped this step or that you want to change your account. If that’s the case, you’ll need a Google account to get started. If you don’t already have one, you can create one during this process.

Open your device’s settings menu. You can find it in the Apps section or via the gear icon at the top of the screen that appears when you slide it down.
