There was an error in the Google Play Services app

The Android operating system is being improved and expanded every day, but some crashes still occur. The most common message users see is: There was an error in the Google Play Services application. This error may or may not be coded. Let's look at the causes and solutions for this particular failure.

What is Google Play Services

It is worth noting that Google Play Services is one of the most important programs on your smartphone. This utility does the following:

  • It is responsible for installing and updating applications in Play Store. It is with the help of such software that the statistics are transferred from the device, and access to the account library is provided.
  • Activates synchronization between your account data. This is how passwords and profile information are transferred to Google servers.
  • Allows you to use email Gmail, Disk, Google Maps and other company services. Also, without these services, no network application will work. For example, VKontakte, YouTube, Instagram.
  • Enables notifications to be sent to the status bar. This applies to messages about updates, suspicious login to the account, lack of free memory.

Of course, there are many more functions that could be highlighted, but let's get to the solution.

What causes the error

There are many factors that affect the operation of the operating system and lead to various failures. Statistically, the most common causes of errors are as follows:

  • Uninstalling the application itself, which is responsible for the main processes of the system. Do not think that such a procedure will be able to reduce battery consumption. Perhaps there will be improvements, but all sorts of glitches will constantly appear on the screen.
  • Unstable Internet connection.
  • Problems with data caching on your smartphone.
  • Problems with the account
  • Improperly performed update.

Returning to the first point, if you try to reset Google Play Services Pay special attention to the program version. Each phone requires its own unique application. First, it has to match the resolution and size of the display. And secondly, it has to match the processor of the device.
