Android 5.1.1

Whenever I open Play Store, I recieve the message "Unfortunately, Google Play Store has stopped.". I can't seem to make it go away, I've tried restarting my tablet and clearing cache and data of Play Store.

Disabling and uninstalling Google+ doesn't solve it.

  • Have you seen our google-play-store tag-wiki – which interestingly linkes to a question titled Unfortunately Google Play Store has stopped? The solution proposed there is almost the same as in Nikhil's answer below, just differently phrased.

  • Yes, I've seen that tag. Posts around here not helped me solve my problem. Commented Nov 21, 2017 at 12:10
  • Use the Aurora Store!

We chose Download manager and cleared cache and data. Seems to be working now.


Try going to application manager and go to Google play store and select u install updates


From my personal experience, clearing the Google Play Store App cache may restore functionality. It's a very simple and quick fix that might help! :)


Download ApkPure apk from HERE.. Install it and update google play services from it..
