How to Cancel Subscription on the Google Play Store

Subscriptions to digital apps and services have become an essential part of our digital lives. However, there may come a time when you want to cancel one of these services. Fortunately, if you subscribed through the Google Play Store, the cancellation process is simple and straightforward. 

Step-by-step guide to cancel subscription on the Play Store

Step 1: Open Google Play Store

The first step is to open the Google Play Store app on your Android device or PC. Make sure you are signed in to the correct Google account, the same one you used to sign up.

Step 2: Access the “Subscriptions Menu”

In the top right corner of the app, click on your profile photo to access the menu. Then tap “Payments and subscriptions” and then “Subscriptions”.

Step 3: Select the subscription you want to cancel

On the subscriptions screen, you will see a list of all active subscriptions linked to your Google account. Select the subscription you want to cancel.

Step 4: Cancel the Subscription

After selecting your subscription, click “Cancel subscription” at the bottom of the page. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the cancellation process.

Uninstalling an app does not cancel your subscription

It is important to remember that uninstalling an app does not automatically cancel the subscription linked to it. In other words, you will still be charged if it is active.

And what happens when you cancel a subscription? You can still access the content for the remainder of the period you have already paid for. For example, if you purchased an annual subscription and canceled it six months later, you will still have access to the subscription content for the next six months.

Canceling a Google Play Store subscription is a simple process that can be done in just a few minutes. However, it’s important to remember to cancel any subscriptions you no longer want, rather than simply uninstalling the app. This way, you can avoid unwanted charges and keep your finances under control.
