I've seen this error a few times just now, it seems to only occur when I install an app through the Google Play web interface. Haven't seen it when installing apps directly from my mobile device. Device is quite new and has more than enough free disk space.
Couldn't find anything on here yet about this specific error. After a retry it downloads without any problems, so while it is far from blocking, I do hope to get some insight on what is happening here.
StackExchange only lists error 923 as an AndroidRuntime(923) error, but I don't see how that can be the cause here.

It seems error 923 is related to the whole process of downloading, cache, storage, installation, etc. People get it most often in Google Play, but sometimes also outside of that. Most suggestions how to fix this come down to:

  • Settings > Apps > Running > stop all (Google related) running services
  • Settings > Apps > All > Google Play Store > Clear data and Clear cache
  • Reboot phone, all should be fine now

Found quite some useful answers on the internet outside of StackExchange (it exists!), so answered my own question already. Suggestions/additions always welcomed. ;)

Didn't even have to restart the phone in my case. –  topher kanyuga Dec 22 '14 at 15:05

Worked perfectly.Thanks ! Rated. –  Sumith Harshan Feb 8 at 16:10

I found this error occurs for me when I "push" from the website of Google Play Store to the phone. I always attribute it to the fact that my wireless is not constantly ON to the phone; it restores connection after returning from sleep. When I wake the phone after the push, I'll find the error, and the relevant app page in Google Play Store live, on the phone, ready to attempt the install again. Pressing the Install button again is successful.

[UPDATE 2015/01/02] This happened again TODAY at the airport where the wifi was POOR. Another vote for wifi-related failure. Didn't even require a reboot; the update occurred normally when connected to the home wifi.

Yup, this is exactly the case as I experienced and described it. :) After some online research I saw that people seem to get it in some other cases too, although that didn't happen to me. –  Jordann Gross Dec 24 '13 at 14:03

I got this same error because my WiFi disconnects when my phone goes to "sleep" but when I brought the phone out of sleep mode and re-downloaded, everything was fine. Just don't let your phone go to sleep.

It is just lack of storage.

the only thing that makes any sense to solve this error on the accepted answer is the clear cache step.
