    I have to travel in UK for summer, and I tried to install some UK apps. Innocent apps, just for some fast-food locations (yes, I like junk food). But I'm italian and play store oddly locks the installation of these apps.
    Is there any easy way to install these apps on not rooted Nougat?

    Alternatively: Can I install these apps when I will be physically in the UK, or Play Store ignores your position and only consider account?

    I would assume you're running into either a region or language block, assuming you have an Italian issued phone. Is the phone an international version, are you sure it will work in the UK?

    The Play Store uses the location of your registered credit card to determine your "Home" country and, therefore, what apps you can and cannot download.

    The only way around this that I am aware of is to register a new payment method based in the country of choice and then make at least one small purchase (buy a $1.00 game and then refund it if you like).

    @PJRed2008 I can't even find these apps if I search on Play Store of the phone. I have to see them via direct links or Play Store via PC

    Would that be done once in-country?

    That would seem logical based on @N4Newbie's post above.

    That won't work.

    The problem is, his account is a Italy account (based on his billing information) and many apps will be denied to him regardless of where he is physically located.
