I tried installing an app on my phone from the Play Store website, but the install button is greyed out. What could be the problem?

The phone is a Samsung Epic 4G running 4.0

  • I assume you're talking about the website? Doesn't it say anything? Like that it's incompatible? – R R May 8 '12 at 15:08

  • Actually one of my friends tried to do this. Will ask him to give me a screenshot.Thanks for the concern. – Raghav May 8 '12 at 15:16

    Just tested. The install button is only greyed out if your device is incompatible. To test this from the device dropdown hover over the phone. It should say that This item is not compatible with your device. – R R May 8 '12 at 15:24

The install button is greyed out if you have no compatible device linked to your Google account.
