Ever since it was launched back in 2008, Google Play has been a popular place to look and download for apps and games for Android. There’s also the right place for looking for books and movies and TV shows.
Why should I clear my Google Play cache?
Each and every download counts. And with every download, there also comes some background data which gets created and then stores in your hidden cache. The Google Play cache can make the program run faster for you; for example, it can download an app again that you have previously removed. But, in time, that cache gets larger, and it will slow down your Google Play app. Sometimes it will even mess with your device, and it will be challenging to download new apps.
If you see any kind of sign that the Google Play Store has its cache overload, then it might be time to clear it and make the app normally run again. We have written this article to tell you how to do it.
So how do I clear the Google Play cache?
First of all, you will need to open the Settings of your Android device, then find Apps. From there, look for the Google Play Store app and tap on it. Then tap on Storage and then tap on Clear cache. You can also tap on Clear Data, which will do a better job of removing all the hidden data from your phone.
Keep in mind that every time you clear your Google Play Store cache and data, you will need to log into the platform again.
