Requires Much? Don't take this star too seriously. Quit enabling cookies without consent. The browsing experience is adequate, but the permissions and terms and privacy setting. Send me the money for clicks. I am not the only person caught up in ads, and it seems my android is addicted to Google. What if I want the best and most from my device without using my screen name? And the Google had in life is to send more adds. and more info. they sure don't mind me helping to improve the settings. learn from me, my connections.
The enlightener First off I would love to say that it is great and that I loved it, that is what I would love to say but I can't,I hate that it can't be moved and that it for some reason wants to share everything about me with every one for no other reason than it is in their contract with the govt to collect and archive everything about everyone that has an account ,how do you think they can do all they do for free? Govt subsidies google shills suckballs trash
It consumes a lot of memory, more then 150mb. Unfortunately I even can't switch it to use my SD card. It keeps all data in RAM :( I have 2gb of RAM, and Google apps, including Chrome, takes more then 60% of them, even when I don't use this apps. Youtube also doesn't work without latest heavy version of this, app :( It takes 30% of my battery, while screen takes 29% and android takes 16%. I'll be glad to send screenshots or provide any information which can help to make this app better. Thanks.
Not the problem. Guys, This app is not the problem for one. This isn't why you need to allow everything. It is simply your system preferences that are asking you to allow specific features. Granted most apps need this to work efficiently. This is because this service processes things like Google sign in on any app you install. It also acts as a processor for most apps, some apps have processors of there own. It doesn't drain battery because it is a factory installed service. Your apps are draining your battery
Yes.... It's useful Guys this application is such a useful system and has a good functions. Where as some apps were been awakened unwanted which actually drains the battery. Your supported battery savers also couldn't stop them from draining battery properly. So kindly consider all our complaints and work on it to develop a new app which solve the problem at least to a better level from now.
For some reason it will not work unless I use WiFi. I deleted update and restored to factory settings worked fine for few hours now back to same thing. Some apps will not work due to it not working while using data. Have deleted an redownloaded multiple times still only works on WiFi any help would be appreciated
Battery killer! Version 10.0.84 soaks my battery totally within couple of hours!!! When I roll back to older version which is not affecting my battery consumption so badly after couple of days it silently updates to last version again. So I have to uninstall every now and then to keep my phone usable! No way to stop it unless you root your device! That's simply unacceptable!!! PLEASE FIX ASAP!!!
Many Issues, Hope u guys reply 1. I added my card to account for buying premium antivirus, my card got debited twice once INR 111 which is correct and second time for INR 50.. please tell me why? 2. Why was no OTP asked fr payment?how can bank debit without OTP? Is this safe? 3. I have done factory reset in my phone and now My Play service app is not auto updating (error 495).. all other apps are updated
I like my privacy, why must I share? Too many permissions. All that claims it's a great app...REALLY don't explain why. If it drains your battery, then why would you give it 5 stars? If I disabled it, would my other apps continue to work? And why are we FORCED to keep it and/or update? I like my privacy and really not interested in sharing with a data hog.
:( Crazy... have to update or install a app to be to use another app... Not only that, here lately Google has dropped the ball. Everything dealing with Google is having problems at the moment. Am I happy with Google? Um... No ... If I could I would remove everyone of their apps from my device.
All reviews that I "thumbed up" are the perfect description of what this app did to my phone. Seems like you guys would FIX the dang issue! I use my phone to work. Need I say more as to how I feel about this app!? Geesh! Won't download. Holding gmail up because I don't have Google play services.
Permissions I think these permissions should be optional because for example, if I play some game or watch youtube videos and I don't want to tell my exact location to these services. For example if I want to use Gmail as my email I don't want to give permission for microphone because Gmail doesn't need to listen to me (there is no function for recording audio to email so this permission is for survaillance). I know NSA and PRISM. :D Dont be evil, Google (it is not nice to spy good peoples)

Fix with update please My kid watches you tube kid learning videos quite often, and now it won't function since the latest update. I am unable to use any google play apps or open google play, just goes to a white screen. I have uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times. PLEASE FIX
The Google Play Store app is not among the apps inside Google Play app itself.. making it impossible to right a review on the Google Play app itself!!!! I think the Google Play app in order to distinguish itself from the competition which is becoming better and better must include more possibilities for the user to search for apps to buy or freely install: 1) possibility to search only apps that are free 2) possibility to filter out apps that require specific permissions 3) obviously the possibility to search for apps that do not require any special permission 4) possibility to arrange results in order of proce, number of required permissions, name, and so on You must give more power to the user... the user must not feel limited in power as is the case now!!! This is very important.. if you havn't thought about it yet then it is time to do so.. if you have and not applied these changes yet..it is time to change your managers! cheers!
Awful I've tried to download this update for 3 days now. A program that I need won't work until it is downloaded. I keep getting a notification that there's not enough memory, which there is, or there is a problem with no explanation. If I could delete the original I would but I can't. Now over a month latter and having done a hard reboot it still gives me the same messages. Stupid app that can't be uninstalled.
Miserable app I agree with 1-star raters. This app sucks. It drains the battery, consumes too much memory, and don't let you uninstall the app in order to free up some space because otherwise other apps apparently become dysfunctional. Also, it requires you to give it full permisjon to all your personal info. What a shame. It SUCKS.
newest update newest update is NOT compatible with Amazon Fire phones. I have uninstalled and reinstalled alot. I have done the install older verisons and then it keeps installing update when I launch a game. the latest version keeps crashing and makes ALL GOOGLE APPS AND GAMES USELESS!!! IT EVEN MAKES MY PHONE USELESS
This applications takes up so much space on my phone, but it won't allow me to run other apps. It blocks the finctionality. Many if the apps thst it says cannot run without, can run just fine if you're willinf to have to hit the back button and deal with Google Play pop ups every few minutes. I don't appreciate the strong arming of an app for a device with limited space
Most hated built in app The screenshot showing the app size is not true. It will consume about 200+mb of your memory. But it cannot be uninstalled because it is like the heart of applications (commonly games). In the end, sucking our own thumb while letting this app eat our memory is the only option left, unless if your phone is rooted as they said.
PLEASE HELP!! My husband just purchased me a new tablet I connected my Gmail everything's connected. I download Fairway Solitaire again to continue from where I left off from my old tablet and for some reason it keeps propping up a notice saying to update Google Play Store which I already have done but it won't pass or clear that notice to proceed in order for me to play please help!
Too much memory, why? I disabled this app because it was taking up way too much memory. The cache data alone would be too much. I cleared up cache data then it would come back like a minute later. Then it said i couldnt get on yourube without it. So i had to enable it again. I couldnt even get any text messages because i didnt have any memory. Why so many permissions? Why cant i have youtube without it? What even?
Battery drain Number 1 battery drainer. Unacceptable performance. My stats will be the same regardless if they are collected every minute or every hour. Sure, collect it more often during something like maps for traffic info. But if my phone is lying around for hours, this shouldn't demolish battery. Between this and the STILL unsolved mobile radio active bug, Google should be ashamed of one of their biggest products' performances.
Bismal Negative Updated but ☎ which I just loaded huge sim card to and cleared ☎ now is asking over and over to update. I am extremely 😠 I help those in need emotionally and cannot access YouTube bc updating is going screwy. I should NOT need google play store bc I don't have time for games - only time for loving people.
Invasive of privacy (or what is left of it) and a memory hog. Why do you need to read my confidential SMS messages and why should I allow you to receive and alter which messages I get?! Talk about Orwellian applications. All you paid high raters just sound like you're advertising and selling the app. It is so obvious you're inauthentic.
I hated it Reason was I have a 5.1android device now for some reason this app is getting crashed everytime I try to login to my Google account. Every single time. I need to download it from the website to be able to use ur play store. Atleast do us the favour and let then user install this crappie app without the Google account.
Annoying Wants too much permission. Just as much snooping as chrome. Always updating. Cant use other apps unless this one has been given fresh consent to access every single thing in your phone. Forces you to update at the worst times. I used to believe that they could do better...
Annoying Always requires an update if it's available,to run apps! But it itself works very bad or the worst. I updated and found it stopped working totally and making me unable to use the phone! What Google engineers think I don't know,they are software expert,they are trying provide the best services but is it the best?
Many apps are linked to Google Play services. These apps share common code. The problem is (on small devices) it's getting to big to load. Note: This app has numerous variants. Third party app stores may install the wrong variant. Let the app update itself. To fix it yourself install the Play Services Info app from Google Play. It brings up this app's Play Store Page. If it needs an update the UPDATE button will appear.
Technology is getting worse Its 2016 and I cant use my phone without lags. What the fk? My phone from 5 years ago was able to use internet or facebook much faster than it does now. It pisses me off. All I want is everything to be smooth, I dont need bad ass apps or games I just want to read some articles, browse the internet and I cant do it without throwing my phone to the wall. Im not even talking about memory and storage usage. I bought this phone and I want to choose what I need on my phone! I didnt ask stupid google apps!
