You have finally taken the plunge and bought yourself an Android device, so the next logical step is to get an account at the Google Play store to allow you to check out the huge range of apps that are on offer there. The thing you should be aware of is that registering and activating your account there is very easy to do and indeed there are just a few steps to take before this particular job is complete.
Using Your Device.
The quickest way of setting up your account is by using your Android device as you must link a Google account to your phone or tablet. Go to your device settings section, and look for the section that deals with accounts. Click on the option for adding an account and then tap the option for Google, which is easy to find thanks to that famous G logo.
Next, you then have two options available to you. The first is to add an existing account and this is an easy enough process as you simply log in and everything is done for you. However, if you do not have an account, then there is another option available whereby you simply create a brand new one and this is done in exactly the same way as you would register every other Google account.
At this point, you simply need to follow the instructions that Google will provide on your device in order to register that account and then link it up to your device. This will also include the actual activation part of the process as this is all done in conjunction with this very same Google account, even if it is your original Gmail.
Linking Up Google Wallet.
The next step that you need to take is to link up Google Wallet to your account in order to make life easier for you when it comes to making those purchases. Doing this is also very easy as you simply need to navigate to the Google Wallet website and create an account there by following the simple instructions and you will be well on your way to simplifying the entire app purchasing process.
So, you need to do the following in order to register at Google Play:
- Go to your Android device and navigate to the settings.
- Click on the account section followed by the add account option.
- Select the Google icon.
- Either link up an existing Google account or create a brand new one and follow the instructions.
- Add Google wallet to your account by going to their website.
It really is that simple to create an account on Google Play and to activate it as it simply needs you to use your Gmail account in order to gain full access. It takes just a matter of minutes to finish it and you will then be able to download any app that you want and when you consider that there are hundreds of thousands of them in their store, then it will take some time to work through all of the various options.
