How to set default currency in Google

When we create an account in Google, different parameters are established linked to the user's profile. One of the most important is the language and location since, based on these values, many other Google and Gmail settings will or will not be available. Now, in the Google account we not only have Gmail, we also have applications such as spreadsheets, presentations, forms and more elements that will make Google a unique experience..

 

A problem that some users have is related to the default currency of their Google account, remember that Google assumes the currency format based on location and language, for example:

 

Google currency formats

 

  • In European countries the euro will be available
  • In the US it will be the dollar
  • In the UK it will be the pound sterling
  • If we select Japan, it will be the Japanese Yen, etc.

 

 

 

 

If you have an error with the default currency in your Google account, TechnoWikis will explain how to solve it.
