[Quick Tip] How to Uninstall Android Apps From the Browser

Ads by Google

One thing I like about the online Android Play Store is that we open it on our computer using a browser and directly install an app as we browse through them. As long as you are signed in on both — the browser and the device, you can install an app by clicking the install button on the browser. Quick and easy!

However, if you didn’t like the app you installed, you cannot uninstall it straight away. We have already seen how you can batch uninstall bulk of applications  on your droid and its still preferable if you have a rooted device. However, if you don’t have a rooted device, you can directly uninstall the apps from the browser itself.

Just log in to the Play Store and click on the My Android Apps link  to see all the apps that are currently installed on your device. If you have multiple devices linked to a single account you might have to choose the device from the list.

You will see all the apps that require update in the beginning along with all the other apps listed in an alphabetical order. If you want to update an app simply click on the Update button. To uninstall an app click on the small recycle button next to the app.

Confirm your action by clicking the Uninstall button on the popup. That’s all, the request will be processed instantly and the app will be uninstalled silently from your device.



As long as you are in front of a computer it’s always easy to uninstall apps using the Play Store itself. Nevertheless, if you are away, you can do it the old fashioned way or use a third party app.

    This used to be a great feature but now seems to be completely gone. You can only install new apps, not recycle old ones. Maybe there’s a setting that controls this ability?
