There are many possible causes for this issue, such as having too many apps downloading or updating at the same time, having a poor internet connection, having a VPN app enabled, having corrupted data in the Play Store app, having outdated Play Store app, having insufficient storage space on your phone, having incorrect app settings, or having a software glitch on your device.


Fortunately, there are also many possible solutions for this issue, and we will show you some of them in this article. Follow these steps and hopefully you will be able to download or update your apps without any problem.


How to fix the download pending issue




Cancel the current downloads and/or updates




One of the simplest and most common ways to fix the download pending issue is to cancel the current downloads and/or updates that are running in the background. This can free up some bandwidth and allow your app to be downloaded or updated faster.


To do this, follow these steps:


  • Open the Google Play Store on your device.



  • Tap on your profile picture in the top-right corner.



  • Select Manage apps & device.



  • Tap on the Manage tab.



  • You will see which applications are in the process of being downloaded or updated. Just press the X next to their name to cancel them.



You can also swipe down from the top of your screen and tap on the X icon next to any notification related to app downloads or updates.


Download over mobile data if Wi-Fi doesn't work




Sometimes, the download pending issue can be caused by a faulty Wi-Fi connection. If you suspect that your Wi-Fi network is not working properly, you can try switching to mobile data and see if that helps. However, keep in mind that this may incur extra charges depending on your data plan and usage.

To download apps over mobile data, follow these steps:


  • Turn off your Wi-Fi connection on your device.



  • Open the Google Play Store on your device.



  • Tap on your profile picture in the top-right corner.



  • Select Settings.



  • Select Network preferences.



  • Select App download preference.



  • Select Over any network.



Now, you should be able to download apps over mobile data. However, if you want to save your data usage, you can switch back to Wi-Fi only or Ask me every time after you finish downloading or updating your apps.


Turn off the VPN app on your device




If you are using a VPN app on your device, it may interfere with the Google Play Store and cause the download pending issue. A VPN app can change your IP address and location, which may affect the availability and compatibility of some apps in the Play Store. It can also slow down your internet speed and cause connection issues.


To turn off the VPN app on your device, follow these steps:


  • Open the VPN app on your device.



  • Tap on the Disconnect or Stop button to turn off the VPN service.



  • Close the VPN app and clear it from your recent apps list.



You can also disable the VPN app from your device settings by following these steps:


  • Go to Settings on your device.



  • Select Network & internet.



  • Select VPN.



  • Select the VPN app that you are using and tap on Forget VPN or Disable VPN.



After turning off the VPN app, try downloading or updating your apps from the Play Store again and see if the issue is resolved.


Delete Play Store data




Sometimes, the download pending issue can be caused by corrupted or outdated data in the Play Store app. This can affect the performance and functionality of the app and prevent it from downloading or updating other apps. To fix this, you can try deleting the cache and data of the Play Store app and see if that helps.


To delete Play Store data, follow these steps:


  • Go to Settings on your device.



  • Select Apps & notifications.



  • Select Google Play Store.



  • Select Storage & cache.



  • Select Clear cache and Clear data.



This will delete all the temporary and permanent data of the Play Store app, such as login details, preferences, settings, etc. You may need to sign in again and adjust some settings after doing this. However, this will not affect your downloaded apps or purchases.


Uninstall Play Store updates




Another possible solution for the download pending issue is to uninstall the updates of the Play Store app. Sometimes, the updates of the app may not be compatible with your device or may have some bugs that cause problems. By uninstalling the updates, you can revert to an older version of the app that may work better for you.


To uninstall Play Store updates, follow these steps:


  • Go to Settings on your device.



  • Select Apps & notifications.



  • Select Google Play Store.



  • Select More (three dots icon) in the top-right corner.



  • Select Uninstall updates.



This will uninstall all the updates of the Play Store app and restore it to its factory version. You may need to update it again later to get the latest features and security patches. However, this may also fix the download pending issue for you.


Free up memory space on your phone


Another possible cause of the download pending issue is having insufficient memory space on your phone. If your phone is running low on storage space, it may not be able to download or update apps properly. To fix this, you can try freeing up some space on your phone by deleting unwanted files, apps, photos, videos, etc.


To free up memory space on your phone, follow these steps:


  • Go to Settings on your device.



  • Select Storage.



  • You will see how much space is used and available on your phone. You can also see which categories are taking up the most space, such as Apps, Images, Videos, etc.



  • Select the category that you want to free up space from and tap on Free up space.
