From time to time you are probably going to want to clear out the search history from your Google Play. You want it as this cluttering up of data can also slow down the response time for the Play Store.
It is very simple to clear your search history and does not take a very long time to do. Here’s how to do it on your Android device.
WAYS TO CLEAR HISTORY:
CLEAR GOOGLE PLAY STORE SEARCH HISTORY:
- Go to Google Play store
- Open play menu
- clear your search History
DELETE APPS FROM LIBRARY:
- Open Play Store
- Go to Play Store Settings Menu
- Access My Apps & Games

STEPS TO GET YOUR GOOGLE PLAY STORE GET BACK ITS SMOOTH PERFORMANCE:
Sometimes the previous searches pop up every time you search the Play Store. That is annoying and you need to clear your history. Though Google accounts are often linked together, the search history clearance only works for the device you are on.
- Tap on the Play icon from your Home screen to access the Google Play Store app.
- Next, open the menu for the Play app. The menu icon looks like three stacked horizontal lines and you’ll find it in the upper left-hand corner of your screen. Or you can also swipe left from the Play Store main page to open up the menu.
- Tap on Settings.
- From the Settings menu, scroll down to the General section and click on “Clear local search history”.
DELETE APPS FROM LIBRARY:
The record of your downloaded apps is kept in your Play Library. No one would want to keep the apps that are downloaded once and uninstalled in his history that keeps popping up.
Follow the steps to clear you Library of since-deleted Play Store downloads:
- Access the Play Store from your device by tapping on its icon from your Home screen or app drawer.
- Go to your settings menu. Tap on the Menu icon in the upper part of your screen or swipe right to open the Settings menu.
- From your Play Settings menu, tap on My Apps & Games.
- Tap on the Library tab. You will see a record of all the apps you’ve downloaded across all devices.
WAYS TO REMOVE THE APPS THAT YOU DON’T WANT TO DOWNLOAD AGAIN
- Scroll down to the app you want to remove and tap on the “x” next to the app name.
- You can sort by recently used and/or alphabetically to make the process faster. Change the sorting style by tapping on the icon with three horizontal lines of varying lengths above the first app entry.
- The Play Store helps streamline this process by letting you know which apps are not installed on the device you are currently on. To see this, sort by Recent.
If you do it regularly, it may save you time and frustration in the future.
