Play Store Not Downloading on Ethernet? Fix It.


A recent update to the Google Play Store improved the interface, but it also appeared to create a bug where some users found they could not download new applications or games while they were on an Ethernet connection. This bug has been acknowledged, and a fix is rolling out. There are a few steps that users may need to complete first.

  1. Go to Google Play’s app info screen. Clear cache and clear data
  2. Switch to Wi-Fi and wait for all downloads to complete

This should also download and install the fixed version of the Google Play Store.
