Most Android users have probably experienced unexpected crashing and burning of the Google Play.
Whether your Google Play Store has just stopped working for you or Google Play Store error message presents when trying to download apps, it is really bothering, so here are some advices on what to do when your Google Play crashes for you.
Empty the Cache
In most cases, when Google Play crashes, you simply need to empty the Google Play Store’s cache, which is a place for storage, temporarily holding the data which can afterwards be quickly retrieved again without reloading it, meaning faster page loading. In order to empty the Play Store cache, just go to the settings on your Android device and find the Apps section. You’ll here have to choose “All” and discover the Google Play Store. Then tap on it and select the “Empty Cache” icon. Your Play Store should be working properly once you empty the cache.
Delete Play Store’s Data
If you delete data from the Play Store you will actually set the app back to the beginning and offload the users’ information that will hopefully engage the cause of the issue. To find this option, just follow the instructions for emptying the cache; instead of “Empty Cache” icon you will tap on “Delete Data” icon.
Activate Download Manager
By deactivating the Download Manager your Google Play Store will crash and stop working. If you want to get it back, you’ll have to go to Settings, then to App Manager and after that to the All Apps tab. You will find Download Manager here and press the activate icon.
Uninstall Play Store Updates
This can help as well, believe it or not. In order to uninstall Play Store updates, you simply go to the settings, find Google Play Store and finally select the icon called “Uninstall Updates”. This move will return your Google Play Store back to its original version, so it would be good to search for and update it to its second newest version.
Remove Google Account and Restore
If you decide to do this, you’ll have to go back to the settings of your phone; but this time you are required to head to the “Accounts” and choose Google and the Google account that you utilize for the Play Store. After this, you need to tap on the action overflow icon located in the top corner on the right side and shown as three vertical dots or the soft button on a Samsung device menu and choose “Remove Account”. Then you’re required to confirm your choice, and once it has fully loaded, you’ll reinstate your Google account by navigating to Settings, then to Accounts; after this, you’ll choose Add Account icon and finally choose Google.
It can happen that your Google Play Store crashes and stops working for you, but that is mostly caused by some minor issues that can be fixed easily. We hope some of these advices should do the trick if your Google Play suddenly crashes for you.
