Google Play Currently Experiencing App Install and Update Issues (Updated)


If you are noticing issues with app updates or new app installs through Google Play, you are not alone or imagining things. Google Play is currently experiencing issues, though we do not know how severe they are. At this time, we are unable to update or install new apps without receiving an error (pictured above).

The web version of Google Play also appears to be struggling.

We’ll update this post as soon as we know more or once service is restored to normal.

Update 3:31PM:  We are now able to update and install new apps. How are things on your end?

    Complete newbie as far as Android is concerned I keep trying to install an app. I am then told to install Google play. I am then told ‘authentication is required,. You need to sign in to your google account. I think my wife signed in with her account. She forgot her password and son deleted this account. Is this why I can’t sign in?
    The phone number she indicated when she signed in has been thrown away with the old phone!
    I guess I have to delete her account somehow, how do I do that please?
