When entering into the Google Play Store app, Android users get themselves involved with errors every now and then, wasting a good amount of time trying to get rid of them and understand what is happening while lacking of information needed.
Errors on Google Play Store are usually common and pretty much inevitable, these make us unable to download apps or update those we already have as mentioned before. But sometimes it is necessary to delete the Google Play Store app in order to solve some of them.
There are occasions where updates from the Google Play Store are uninstalled, so it now appears under the name of Market or Android Market. In any case, all you have to do is to connect your phone to the Internet and the update will pop up with the latest version available.
You could have accidentally disabled the app, so just re-enable it.
In order to view the disabled applications, go to the Settings menu of the Android device, tap on the Applications tab, select All and then Disabled.
Once you have done this, select the Google Play Store app and select “Activate”.
If the app is not there, many apps that require Google Play Services will not work, or will not work properly, so it will be a real headache to use the device.
To solve this problem, you will have to install the APK from the Play Store, and in case you don’t have the Google Play Store application, then you should also install the APK of that app. The easiest and safest way to do it is by downloading the APK from the apk mirror web page. Once the APK is installed, you will be able to use the Google Play Store without major problems.
In case the previous method does not work, you can always reset your phone to its factory version.
Be sure to make a backup of all the important data that you do not want to lose. Then go to the Settings menu of the Android device.
Scroll down and tap on the tab Privacy, select Factory Reset and then check the Erase Everything option.
Now it is time for you to wait while your phone boots up, this time with the Google Play Store restored.
