It is a notable fact that Google stores information about all the apps that the user has installed on any device till date. The indicated apps are also seen presentable for an Android device user. Thus, it acts as a complete mess if you are a user who likes installing a plethora of applications on the handset. Otherwise, there may be another situation where sometimes an individual would want to revert back to the list to look back into question that which application was added into that list when or which are the applications that a person had installed once on the particular device.



Nevertheless, deleting these apps from the list would be of better orientation when the list keeps on accumulating new additions as a result of an individual’s downloads. At that moment, deleting these specific ones take a circumstance than simply keeping them in the list. Previously, this feasibility could not have been undertaken to fulfil our interests, but this has been manifested now on after the latest build version of Play Store.

This can be done in the following steps as reported down in sequential fashion:

STEP 1: Initially, an individual needs to ensure that the Play Store build version is 3.9.16 or higher is functioning on the individual’s handset. This is the requirement of this particular process.

  • Open Play Store.
  • Press Menu button and tap on Settings.
