Nowadays, it’s not hard to find people with multiple subscription services. In fact, with all the gaming, music, TV, and film streaming content out there — not to mention health and food apps — it’s almost impossible not to be signed up for some form of monthly paid service.

Of course, keeping track of all of those subscriptions can be difficult, but Android’s Google Play Store makes it easier by giving you access to all of your subscriptions in one place within the app.

If you want to cancel a subscription, you can do it directly from the Google Play Store app, with no need to log in to the app itself.

When you cancel a subscription, you will still be able to use the service until the month you’ve already paid for runs out. After that, your access will end, and you will either no longer be able to use the service or revert to the app’s non-premium version.
