Well there are a few ways you can go about it

Method one: Clear app data and cache for Google Play Store

  • Open Settings
  • Tap on “Apps”
  • Find and tap “Google Play Store”
  • Then tap “Storage”
  • Now tap “Clear Data” and then “Clear Cache”

Now you should proceed to do the same for “Google Play Services” and hopefully your problem will be solved.



Method two: Uninstall Updates

It’s simple if the method mentioned above didn’t work for you should try and uninstall all the Google Play store updates you have installed on your phone. To do so,

  • Open Settings
  • Tap on “Apps”
  • Find and tap “Google Play Store”
  • Then tap “Uninstall Updates”

What this will do is revert your Google Play Store to the base version your phone shipped it with. When you open it up again Google Play Store will automatically proceed to update itself and be functional again.

Method three: Sign out and back into your Google account

Another method to solve this pesky little problem is by signing out of your Google account.

How do I do that?

Well, it’s rather simple. Follow the steps below:

  • Open the Settings menu on your device.
  • Under “Accounts,” touch the name of the account you want to remove.
  • If you’re using a Google account, touch Google and then the account. Important: When you remove your Google Account, all the email, contacts, Calendar events, and other data associated with that account will no longer automatically sync with your device.
  • Touch the Menu icon in the top-right corner of the screen.
  • Touch Remove account. If this is the only Google account on the device, you may need to enter your device’s pattern, PIN, or password as a security measure. This ensures that only you or someone you trust is removing the account from your device.

And what if the problem persists even after I try all three methods?

Well, you can try one of the techniques mentioned below to try and help see you out of this precarious condition:

  • Restarting the mobile device.
  • Uninstalling recently installed applications.
  • Making sure you have enough storage space available in the internal memory of the mobile.
