How do I view download history on Android?

Answered by Jarrod Smith

To view your download history on Android, you can follow these steps:

1. Open the Google Play store app: Look for the Play Store icon on your home screen or app drawer and tap on it to open the app.

2. Access the menu: Once you’re in the Play Store, tap on the menu button, which is usually represented by three horizontal lines in the top left corner of the screen. This will open a side menu with different options.

3. Go to “My apps & games”: In the side menu, scroll down until you find the “My apps & games” option. Tap on it to proceed.

4. View installed apps: By default, you will see the “Installed” tab, which displays a list of all the apps currently installed on your device. If you’re specifically looking for your download history, you need to switch to the “Library” tab.

5. Switch to “Library” tab: Tap on the “Library” tab at the top of the screen to access the complete list of apps you have downloaded using your Google account. This will show you all the apps you’ve ever downloaded, even if they are no longer installed on your device.

6. Scroll through the list: You can now scroll through the list of apps to view your download history. The apps are arranged in chronological order, with the most recent downloads appearing at the top. You might need to scroll down to see older downloads.

7. Filter by All: By default, the apps in your library are filtered by those that are not currently installed on your device. If you want to see all the apps you’ve ever downloaded, including those currently installed, tap on the drop-down menu labeled “Not on this device” and select “All” instead.

That’s it! You should now be able to see your complete download history on Android. You can tap on any app in the list to view more details, update or uninstall it if needed. Remember that this method only shows the apps you’ve downloaded from the Google Play store using your Google account, and it does not include apps installed from other sources.
