This way you can delete your search history from the Google Play Store

26 mayo, 2021

We have all done a search that we are not proud of in the Google application store for Android. And although this is not the case, many of you will have made enough normal searches to have such a full record making it impossible for us to locate an important search that we no longer remember.

That is why many of you may want to put a little order occasionally clearing the search history from Google Play Store, and thinking of users who being less experienced may have problems doing it, we have decided to briefly explain two simple ways in which you can do it.

With the Google Play Store app

The least complicated way to do it is through the app store itself from Google on Android. As you will see now, the steps to follow without a few, and the option to delete the history is quite visible.

  • In the Google Play Store app, access the menu sliding from the left edge of the screen to the right, or by clicking on the icon with the three horizontal stripes.
  • Once there, enter the option of Settings.
  • In the section general of the settings, the third option will be the one you are looking for: Clear local search history. Click on it and you’re done.

As putting only one method, the post is a bit short, if you want to complicate your life you can also delete the history from the settings application of your Android.

  • Open the application drawer and enter the Settings.
  • Browse the menu until you find the Applications option.
  • In general, this section lists the apps in the sections Downloaded, On SD card, In action Y All.
  • Make sure you are in the All option, search the list for the Google Play Store app and click on it.
  • In Android 5.1.1 and lower versions you will only have to give the option to Delete Data. From Android 6.0 you will have to first access the option to Storage to be able to erase the data from there.
  • This will reset the application data, so when you go back in you will have to configure some things again.

And that’s all. Simple, right? Evidently the process that we recommend that you follow is the first, but if you are lovers of gadgets, you might like to navigate between the Android options. It is in your hand.
