How To Deal With Common Play Store Errors  on Freepps Top Blog

When it comes to downloading apps for Android, Google Play Store is a number one destination for the majority of users because of its accessibility and security. But, just like with any other service, you can occasionally experience some problems. In this article, we offer you a list of the most common errors that you may encounter and how you can fix them.

What is Error 944?

One of the errors that people notice quite often is Error 944, which can appear when the servers of Google Play Store go offline or there is some issue with connectivity. In this case, all you are able to do is wait for the servers to get fixed, but you will know that it’s not the fault of your device.

Resolving Errors 495/ 110/ 941 / 927 / rh01 / 504 / 406 / 413 /

The Errors 495 and 110 are also some of the most common errors that you can encounter while trying to download the apps from the Play Store. The problem may appear under different numbers as stated above, but there is one solution to all of them. The steps you need to follow to delete your Play Store data are:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Choose Apps and then All.
  3. Click Google Play Store.
  4. Click Clear data and Clear cache.

Once you do that, it is likely that the problem gets fixed. If you don’t see any improvement, you should try deleting the data from the Google service framework. You can find it under the apps settings menu, but you should remember that doing this may affect the work of some of your apps as you will get a new Google ID. 

Fixing Error 919

If you happen to see Error 919 while using the Play Store, it means that you don’t have enough space on your device to either update the existing app or install a new one. To fix the issue, all you have to do is delete the files and apps you don’t need if you really want to install the new one.

Errors 491 / 923 / 101

If you see Error 491, 923, or 101 it means that you cannot download the apps or get updates. Compared to the previous ones, it is a more serious problem that you can solve by removing the Google account from your device and adding the same or a new one. To do that, you will have to:

  1. Open Settings on your device.
  2. Choose Accounts.
  3. Go to Google menu, click on the account and then tap Remove account.
  4. Restart your device.
  5. Go back to Settings.
  6. Choose Apps and swipe to All.
  7. Find Google Services by scrolling down and click Clear data.

Error 403

Just like the errors mentioned above, the Error 403 makes it impossible to download the apps and receive updates. But in this case, the problem occurs as a result of conflict caused by using several Google accounts to buy apps on a single Android device. If you want to get rid of the problem, you should open the Google account used to purchase the app, uninstall it, and then click the install or purchase button again.

If you still see the error, you can try deleting the search history. All you should do is:

  1. Open the Play Store Settings.
  2. Clear search history.
