We know that Google Play Store is a place where we can find all kinds of latest and useful Apps for Android phone and tablets. But after installing Google Play Store, some of you are depressed because the app doesn't work. In this guide, we will list several methods that can fix issues of the app.

Google Play Store may be slowed down and even stuck because of full cache, where data is temporarily stored. Follow the steps to clear the cache: Go to Settings > Apps > All > Google Play Store > Clear cache.
