While the Google Play Store started off as a rival to the Apple App Store, it has evolved into so much more. You can not only find all kinds of apps and games there but download eBooks, movies, TV shows and even buy Google branded products.
However, for a regular paid user of the Google Play Store with multiple users of a single account, things can get out of hand. Fortunately, there is a great way to view Google Play Store spending history with an app.

Step 1: Download My Paid Apps
Developed by the talented Jens Kristian Geyti, the My Paid Apps is an excellent solution to keeping track of all your Google Play Store expenses. While the ad-enabled version of the app is completely free for use, you can get rid of them with a one-time purchase of $1.52.
Step 2: Grant Access to the App
Before you can begin using My Paid Apps to view Google Play Store spending history, you need to grant it additional permissions. Once you have the app installed on your device, go ahead and press the “Refresh” icon on the top of the screen.
This action will bring up a pop-up window on your screen for “Full account access”, so press “Allow” at the bottom of the page to continue.
Step 3: View Google Play Store Spending History
With the app installed and permissions granted, you will now be able to see the “All Purchases” screen in the app. The page shows you details of the total amount of money you have spent on the Google Play Store with that account, along with the devices linked to that particular Google account.
The top portion of the screen has a drop-down menu, which allows you to refine your purchases to a single category. Here you can find specific expenses related to apps, music, movies, devices, in-app purchases and more.
