The Google Play Store is one of the apps we take for granted, mostly because it simply acts as a mediator between the user and his or her valuable apps. Hell freezes and the sky falls when it happens to stop working. How will you download the new app you've been waiting for so desperately?
There is no definite guide to fixing the Google Play Store, but we have compiled a set of tips and tricks that will likely get your valuable app store up and running again. Let's jump straight into the nitty gritty before you get crazy without the Play Store access!
Make sure it is a problem for the end of the user
Before Going through a lot of steps trying to solve a problem, make sure the problem is not with Google itself. The best way to do this is to go somewhere like the Down Detector to see if others are reporting problems. If enough people claim similar problems, it may be a temporary server problem that will fix itself with some patience.
The problem can be Google!
Forcing close Google Play store
Sometimes a simple force is near everything you need! You can do that by simply removing the Google Play Store from your multitasking app switch. Or you can go to Settings> Apps> All and then access the Google Play Store and click "Stop Stop".
Turn on the flight mode
Not sure how much this works, but I've heard a lot of people say changing airplane mode and then off will help Google Play Store come back on track. Hi, it's not a complicated process and it's safe. Why not try, right?
Toggle Wi-Fi on and off
Just as with flight mode, Wi-Fi can be the problem. Not to mention, your network may well have simple connection problems! Switch Wi-Fi on and off and play with the Google Play Store for some. It can only help.
Restart your router
I'm not an expert, but I've fixed a Wi-Fi problem or two by just restarting my router. It may not always make sense, but try, and you can only influence the Wi-Fi magic enough to make things work again.
Restart your phone!
As in the good oil "Times, the modern electronics sometimes just need a smack to work properly.
Likewise, modern electronics sometimes just need a smack to work properly. a real smack, but you have to put everything back in place, and sometimes a simple restart will do.It takes a minute or two and often fixes problems.
Wipe the cache for the Google Play store
The cache is a great tool By storing data locally, the phone can reduce the data usage and increase the upload time, which are data that would otherwise have to be downloaded every time you access a page, which is unnecessary if there are no changes! The bad part is that sometimes older data can stack up, and it can also beat.This is why it is good to clear the cache memory from time to time.
If you want to dry the cache in the Google Play store, just go to the settings and select the "Apps" option. From there, you just search for the Google Play Store and tap it. You will be presented with many options, including a "Clear cache" button.
Delete data from Google Play Store
Does caching not close enough? It's time to take out some big weapons and really clean up things. To delete related data, go to your settings and go into the App Manager as you did to clear the cache. Instead of hitting "Clear Cache", select "Clear Data."
Just remember that this will clear the program. It will need to log in and retrieve all data again the next time you access the Google Play Store.
Have a look at your disabled apps
Keep in mind that some apps need each other to work properly. Especially when it comes to system programs like the Google Play Store. Have you recently disabled any apps? It may be the cause of your Play Store woes.
Just go to Settings> Apps> All and scroll all the way down. This is where disabled apps go when they are shut down. If you see any disabled services, just activate them and see if it helps.
Checking Date and Time Settings
It may seem like a stupid suggestion, but it can often be the cause of many issues on the Google Play store. This may be because Google's servers are having trouble synchronizing with date and time. Go back and put them automatically, if they are not. If it doesn't help, try setting your time and date as accurately as possible. Just play around with the time and date settings a bit.
It may seem like a stupid suggestion, but date / time settings are often the cause of problems with the Google Play store.
Remove Proxy or VPN Settings
Lots of VPN / proxy users say they have encountered issues across the board. Have you tried to disable them (if you use them)? Proxy settings are under WiFi, and you can access it by long pressing your router name and clicking "Advanced." At the same time, the VPN settings under "More" are in the Wireless & Networks section.
Uninstall it !
If everything fails, your best bet would probably be to uninstall the Google Play Store. The only trick is that this is a system app and you really can't just get rid of it. What you can do is uninstall the updates, take the program to an older version. You can update it again afterwards, so don't worry – this is a safe procedure.
Just go to Settings> Apps> Google Play Store and click "Uninstall Updates."
The problem is Google Play Services?
We can say that Google's apps are the engine that drives Android devices. Yes, we are talking about the weird app that needs updating from time to time when you try to get another application. And many have no idea what it is, but it happens to be the backbone of the phone. Google's program offers some of the most exciting features, and all are powered by Google Play Services.
Like all other apps, Google Play Services can sometimes fail, so if you have any kind of Google related problem, it's worth playing with it. Try to clear both the cache and the data by following the same step from above. The only difference is that instead of accessing the Google Play Store, go to Google Play Services on the App Manager.
Delete and enter new Google account
I don't have much faith in this, but some suggest you can restore your Google Account to fix some issues. I guess it's worth a try before you jump on the last (and most extreme) tip. Just go to Settings> Accounts and select your Google Account. Click on the menu with three points and press "Delete". Then add your account again and try to access the Google Play Store.
I don't have much faith in this but some suggest that you be able to restore your Google Account to fix some issues.
