    Minecraft App and tablet replacement 19th May 17 at 8:14 AM
    Hi All

    My daughter loves Minecraft on her Hudl2 but the tablet is having issues which means I am having to regularly factory reset it (well, twice so far in the last 2 weeks) and frequently drops wifi so I am concerned it is on its way out.

    Hence, I have bought her another Android device which is due to arrive shortly.

    Question is - do I need to pay for installation of Minecraft on this new device or is it possible to uninstall on the Hudl2 and install on the new device without additional payment?

    At the end of the day, Minecraft isn't expensive but it would satisfy my curiosity at least to know the answer!

    Was the Minecraft downloaded via the Google play store ?

    If it was then no as its linked to the play store account.

    For any app on the Play Store - buy an app and you can run it on any Android device signed into that Google account you're using, phone or tablet.

    If you have downloaded it from the play store, then as long as you sign your new device into the same google account, you can re-download ALL (or some, if you prefer) your apps without paying again.


    Because it is linked to the play-store account
