Google just quietly snuck a new feature into its Play Store app, a new spending limit tool. So, here’s how to set a Google Play Store budget on mobile…
It’s easy to spend money on the Google Play Store. Since users have their payment information stored and ready-to-go, impulse purchases can really add-up to a lot.
How to Set a Google Play Store Budget on Mobile
Google understands the frustration parents and spontaneous people feel when recounting their past purchases. So, the company has quietly added a new tool to help out.
Whether it’s games, movies, apps, books, music, or in-app buys, those purchases add-up quickly. To keep spending under control, it’s now possible to set a Google Play Store budget by following these steps:
- Open the Google Play Store app on a phone or tablet.
- On the upper left side, tap “Menu” (the three horizontal line hamburger icon).
- Select “Account.”
- Choose “Purchase History.”
- Tap on “Set Budget.”
It’s also possible to adjust the Google Play Store spending limit. Or, remove the Google Play Store budget, if desired.
(It’s important to note, setting a Google Play Store budget does not limit purchases, it only tracks the total amount spent to-date during a given month.)
