To be able to download apps in the Play Store you will need at least 510mb available or 10% of the internal memory. Also depends on the size of the app you download. The Android OS uses the internal memory also to RAM purposes so is very relative the available space. Try to clear cache and data from GPStore, GPServices, Reset Apps Defaults and also remove some unused apps.

  • Is that the minimum of 510MB or 10%, or the maximum of 510MB or 10%? BTW, do you happen to have a source of that info? Commented Aug 19, 2015 at 22:04
  • You need to have a minimum of 510mb available OR you need to have at least 10% free of the total amount depending on the device.

  • lol... If your device has 32GB of RAM, would you need 510MB or 3.2GB? If your device has 2GB of RAM, would you need 510MB or 200MB? IOW, is it the minimum or maximum of the two values? Do you have any source for the info? Commented Aug 21, 2015 at 15:52

I had the same problems recently and cause was app2id. Uninstalling that and any other similar app might help. Also clean cache of play store and play services.
