How To Fix The Google Play Store “Download Pending” Error

The Google Play Store can turn into quite a problematic service at times. While it remains our window to millions of apps, many of which we love, it’s also often a frustrating experience when it decides to stop working for no apparent reason. There’s the Play Store Error 910, or the download pending error, for example – is one that’s much more common amongst users than we’d like it to be. Apps install don’t complete, and we get either an always downloading progress bar, or simply a ‘download pending’ error. With no native alternate built into Android, we’re left with no option but to somehow troubleshoot this Play Store download pending error, and hope the Play Store back up and running again.

The download pending error occurs when you initiate a download on the Play Store, and but it does not complete. Instead, you see this error with an option to cancel the download. Of course, this is better than having the entire Play Store disappears off your phone (you can restore google play store using this guide, though). Anyway, here are the common fixes to the notorious Play Store download pending error .

Check current downloads and updates

Restarting your Phone

Restarting the phone will refresh its RAM by removing all the temporary data stored for your Google Play Store, which includes the updates or the stuck downloading files. You can restart your phone by selecting Power Off option and then turning ON phone again or just selecting the Restart option. After restarting your device, go check if you can download or update apps now.

Disable Auto Updates and Stop Pending Installations

Mostly one or more applications will be stuck if auto updates are ON for your Google Play Store and stopping that will let the others update. You can also stop all updates in the library and start updating application individually without any problem. A better option is to tick the “Don’t auto-update apps” so you never get this error in the future.

These methods should be sufficient to fix your Play Store download pending error. If they’re not, write in to and we’ll look troubleshoot it ourselves!
