If that's the case, then do you know that there's a way through which you can replace "Unnamed Device" with the actual name of your phone? If that's what you were looking for, then you'll be glad to know that in this tutorial, we'll be discussing all the steps involved.

If you are fed up of seeing the "Unnamed Device" moniker every time, the first step you need to do is to head to the Settings page.

Needless to say, you'll have to click the Edit button, and you'll observe that the NICKNAME field becomes editable. That's what we want, right? Just enter the name of your device here.

That's it. Now, whenever you'll try installing an app from the Play Store's Web version, you'll see your device listed as whatever name you gave it, instead of that boring "Unnamed Device."
