1. Clear cache for the app
If you observe that the error message pops up repeatedly when you try to launch a particular app, then the cause of the problem is that app.
Go to Settings -> Apps and find that app. Tap the app and on the following page hit Clear cache. This trick might work on it.
If that still doesn’t help, you can also clear the app data, too. That means this process will completely lose any kind of game progress or chat conversations, etc., so you might want to returned for the app data first. Now, find the Clear data above Clear cache (see the picture below).
If the problem still occurs, the next step is to try uninstalling the app (which can be done from the same page as clearing the cache and data) and reinstalling it later.
2. Clear Google Play Services data
If clearing the cache and data for a particular app, doesn’t work, there is another quick solution that you should try. This involves removing all of your Google Play Services data, this sounds scarier than it actually is.
This method will delete your Google Play Services settings and preferences but they are easy to assign again afterwards, you probably won’t even notice it has ever happened. Go to Settings -> Apps -> Google Play Services. On the App info page, tap Clear cache.
3. Reset app preferences
Another option would be to go to the Settings -> Apps ->reset app preferences (the option for this is found via the three-dots or hamburger icon).Than, click on the RESET APPS.
This will bring all of your apps settings back to default, but it won’t delete any app data. In other words, you won’t lose any progress you have saved.
4. Disable automatic application updates
Sometimes this error may happens after an app has been updated, so if you turn off automatic updates from the Play Store, the problem won’t happen as often. But you should still remember to manually update your apps anyway.
To disable automatic updates, go to your Google Play Store app settings and deactivate automatic updates.
