Trouble changing the country of Google account

So a couple of years ago I moved back to Lithuania, but my Google account was still bound to UK. The guides I used to change the country did not work and I did not have an option to change the country as described in the Google documentation. I had to do a few extra steps:

  • Delete the Google Family group
  • Change my phone number associated with the account to a Lithuanian one

As soon as I did the last step, the option to switch to Lithuania appeared on my phone’s Settings and then General and then Account and device preferences and then Country and profiles section.

Now I just need to wait and see what content will no longer be available for me as it takes 48 hours for the change to happen. I have a few games I bought for my kids to share with, but the most important one is obviously Minecraft! Fingers crossed it’s still available to install 😅
