    Don't like it because it keeps stopping. Then this message pops up across the screen goggle play srevices keep stopping. Then you have choices. 1). Open app again. 2). Close app. 3). Send feed back. I tried all three!! It still pop up while i try to make a phone call, when i try to take care of urgent bussiness, or play a game. I'm just fed up!😡

    keeps stopping So I'm having this issue where I can't use any google related app because the play store won't update. That wouldn't be such a problem if you weren't stuck with the app swirling forever like it's trying to update. Google please fix this, I've waited patiently for this to be fixed and it's still an issue. I can't even listen to music because google controls my music which takes me back to the store needing to be updated.

    apk It has been glitching non stop since past few days. My chrome starts working, basically I can't access Google servers, same goes with drive, classroom, YouTube, YouTube music and so on. I've tried everything shown on Google support even had to factory reset my phone because of an error but it's still glitchy, it works one moment and stops in another. Please do something about it.

    update A new problem, in the recent 6 months, is : sometimes not always if phone get turned off (seemingly mostly after a battery full drain) google play service starts repetitive crash stops , other apps having dependency on it such as youtube start to crash too. Cleaning the data repairs the google play but not apps. The process of cleaning data must be repeated fo all crashed apps. And some apps have valuable data or config which we lost.

    for instant apps Google play Services keeps stopping. Please get this taken care of asap. I have had 5 other people have the same problem all week with this situation. Tired of having Google play Services keeps stopping popping up on my phone every 2 seconds. If I could give this app negative 100 I would do it because this shouldn't be happening to people. Google do you read these comments from the people who are having the same issue that I am having.

    app I am being bombarded by pop ups stating google play services has stopped. They are coming every few seconds rendering my phone useless. I have reported it, I disabled google but nothing seems to work. This has been an issue for approximately 38 hours. I see other posts with the same issue dated mid to late September. What the hell is going on?

    draining battery I'm writing this on my phone as my tablet has the pop up problem. I cant even really report it as you can't type fast enough to make sense. I hope this gets resolved ASAP as I cannot use my tablet at all. For every pop up I try to send a report, that's about 50 gibberish messages a minute. I will send a report every time I get the pop up. If they get 100000 reports will they fix it? All answers are turned off for questions about this issue, you think they know about it?

I've tried each one and now the pop-up comes back every TWO SECONDS! PLEASE FIX! I CANNOT USE MY PHONE AT ALL! I am Very angry about this! ~ 09/22/20 ~ Update ~ Yea! I waited patiently for 'them' to fix the problem, and 'they' came through! I don't get frustrated about pop-ups anymore, and I don't miss them, either. 👍Thanks.

    12.6.85 Since the last update I notice my phone battery is draining fast, even when I'm sleeping. This program always shows in the battery usage. I had this problem about a year ago and now it's back again. I rebooted, cleared the cache and it has made no difference. Very frustrating when my battery drains 35% while I sleep for just 7 hours.

    I don't understand what this app is supposed to be doing for us. Does it track everything to see how it's used on our phone thru Google? I get an error message now, that I see others have posted about as well, that pops up A LOT saying Google Play Services keeps stopping. Nothing I do helps. I have sent in feedback about the error and I'm still waiting. What do I do about this error all the time? I can't even open my email b/c it crashes right away and it's very important I do! Please help!!

    Some people really don't know how this app works, it needs the permission in order for your phone to even work, getting rid of it by other means, your phone will no longer work. Permissions are required in order for you to do anything. This "app" is a framework made for android that ALL ANDROID DEVICES must have in order to function, that goes for the app store, youtube, gmail and any app related to Google or it's partners. It does not "invade" your privacy it provides you with what you want.

    Google Play Service has been crashing the past 4-5 months on my Note 9. Tried every method on google search, from clearing cache, uninstalling and reinstalling Google play and play service. booting into safe mode to isolate if it was 3rd party apps causing the crash, clearing Rom data in service mode, removing my ext sd card. Nothing works, and it's already crashed 4 times while trying to write this review. The only thing I haven't tried is factory reset, and I refuse to do that. GOOGLE FIX IT!!

    I don't know if this app is working or not. It keeps appearing a pop up message that says, "unfortunately, google play services has stopped" anytime i visit the google play store...and back my phone to the system menu. I can't use the google play store anymore, it keeps appearing the pop up and back my phone to the menu... Even that, after downloading this app, i still felt it completely useless, because my phone still behaves the same way it does before, until i uninstall the updates...

    Google changed my account to my other account so I can't make purchases on one of my games. The other games use the correct account except my Last Shelter game. If they don't sort the issue then I will have to quit that game after a lot of spending. I am not happy and you can't contact them. The game developers have stated it is a google issue, so I have been stuffed up for growth in that game. JUST FIX THE ISSUE GOOGLE without saying try this try that

    It is asking for permissions to be granted to properly work such as contacts, sms and phone. Im sorry, but unless you are calling people, texting people and whatever else there is no need for those permissions. Also why do you need to veiw and write system messages? It was turned off to see what happens. Nothing did and when i checked back recently it was on again.

  19. Sumii-avatar



    Google play services are pretty nice but however, it keeps stopping. And that isn't new I gave it 3 stars because of the bad quality.. I really REALLY hope this gets fixed I don't know what is happening. I keep updating it but it doesn't improve. I hope the team improves this problem.

    "Google play services has stopped responding". This popup makes it near impossible to use the device for anything and I had to uninstall the updates completely in order to stop it from happening. I still can't use most of my apps.

    I want to deactivate Google Play Services but it will not allow me to do so. It is like being watched constantly by Big Brother. It has access to everything. I never installed the App. but I am now cursed with it. Please, at least send a message that explains how to get rid of it. OR, just remove Google Play from my phone. I "tapped" my review but for some reason it keeps printing back to me "Edit your review". It will not even allow me to send or rather POST it.

    It's like it goes off on off on off on off signal loss sing-along. Toledo locks and then it works perfectly fine again and I've had the same exact experience between the Alfred camera and the broadcasting to the Chromecast full me Naomi in succession repetitively like a machine gun so I really wish Google with take the initiative to pull all of these different teams together and make fluid software that everybody always claims at 4 to be the leader on

    I don't have anything to compare it to. Never knew I had an option. It does what I want it to most of the time. Sometimes difficult logging in if you forget your log in info when upgrading phones. That's not their fault though. Come to think of it, I'll give 5 stars, for the privacy alerts I receive.

    If i had another app to use i would. It constanly wants to sebd push nofications to my phone. It pushes notices to my phone anyway. It took litterly 3 hours to updates. Waste of time and battery.

    What does this app even really do other than allow google to run on your phone and i guess keeps tabs on your device at all times even if your location services are off by tracking the phones i.p. address. Seems like google needs to add more infor for users so they know exactly what this apps doing or reporting to them without our knowledge

    So hard to redeem a Google play card You would think it would be easy. Its impossible. I have been trying for a hour. And i am not stupid. WHy not just a simple redeem button. Ok it has now been about 18 months since my review, I would of thought you would of done something to make redeeming a Apple Gift Card easier to redeem, like I suggested. I really thought I was giving you some valuable information for us that are not too sauvy on these computers. A very simple redeem your Apple Gift Card

I've lost hundreds of hours and characters overnight, billions in my favorite poker game, and a ton of real money in Asphalt 9. It's never the game, it's creator, Google Play services or Google. Btw.
