Reviews From google play store

For at least a month all my devices are telling me to update goggle play services or it won't run. Then I click update and I'm only given a button labeled "deactivate", which does nothing... please fix. I try it's time to fix this. Please fix. Stop the incessant nagging or I'm switching...been considering a switch, and this might push me over the edge... please fix. Please fix. Please fix.


I have been hijacked through apps/permissions. Thank you for instructions to remove unwanted or not needed permissions, and letting us know they offer a back door into becoming a victim of identity theft, as I have/am still learning the hard way. I have lost everything in Google storage since 2004, tho backed up b4 data reset, was all removed, how unfortunate, that I've all but lost my desire to even have a device with these features. It has cost me too much.


Constantly crashing in all my devices. Other apps require update, but one isn't available. Hot mess. Then there's the Play app. Attempts to edit reviews on Android cause crashes, so can't review anything (doing this on my PC). Refuses to show or allow apps that are not specifically listed as compatible with devices, even though when sideloaded they work fine because there's nothing device-specific in most apps. And no, dpi isn't a big enough deal to disallow an app's installation.


There's no option to turn off auto-update. I want to be able to update it when I feel like it and when I am willing to use the data for it. I don't like any programs that don't give me complete control of my system whenever I need or want it. Especially when it involves connecting to the internet. Let me update it manually on my schedule and I'll return to adjust my score. Even if it says it will wait untill a wi-fi network is connected. That doesn't mean it will wait until I do it.


@Google LLC, Okay I'm starting in a very straightforward manner that PLEASE FIX THIS UPDATE NOTIFICATION IT IS ONE OF THE COMPLAINTS I'M SEEING AND I'M A VICTIM OF IT TOO, I can't open any apps because it keeps saying that I need to UPDATE GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES and when I do,something in the progress messes it up! And I have to retry all over again! PLEASE I BEG YOU GOOGLE AND CO. DO NOT IGNORE THIS ISSUE/SITUATION,REPLY TO THE REVIEWS! SAY SOMETHING ABOUT THIS ISSUE! I BEG YOU PLEASE!


The stupid device health services thing keeps saying it'll stop working unless Google Play is updated, but there's no option to update google play. Either make your product compatable with non-Pixel Android products or get the hell out of the Android market, Google! Update: I'm now being told Maps won't work unless I update Google Play Services. And there is STILL no option to do so.


Getting on my nerves now Google!!!!! Stop telling ppl lies there phone won't work cos that's misleading ba if you DO NOT!! FIX THIS!! Then I will move to Apple ANY DAY!! android beat phone but this update nonsense is driving me nuts My advise of this continues it a new phone!! Just fix this plz or you will put customers off I'm 1 of them and look at your reviews everyone that has updated HATES IT!!!!!!!! USE YOUR BRAINS FGS!!! Google fix this or everyone will run to I phone I assure you!


I keep getting the alert to update but when I try to update, there is no option for it. I only have the option to "deactivate" which seems strange if i need an update. Gets annoying having the alert come up ALL THE TIME! And dismissing it only brings it right back.


I cant do nothing on my phone! Everything keeps shutting down! It says google play keeps stopping, I have tried everything and nothing working, I cant even answer the phone! I deleted the app and now I cant even download it to try again! I followed the directions and didn't work either


THIS APP DRIVES ME NUTS! There's no need for it to be running - and taking up shed loads of memory - when I have my data switched off (and therefore have no possible use for Google Play). FIX IT PLEASE. It shouldn't run unless I run a Google Play app, and should remove itself from memory when I stop using said app.
