I could not download more than 100mb of games / apps from playstore and got the bug connected, I tried all the ways guided by Google support, but it worked. To fix this I also went to the OnePlus service center and they reinstalled the standard OS 11, which works fine, but I get the same error and problem when I try again the next day.
We have highlighted a similar issue in the past when users are unable to download the Amazon app or the Gallery app on their OnePlus devices.
According to affected users, this issue affects many game titles in the Play Store Asphalt, Call of Duty, Babji, Among many others.
I can’t update my games in the Play Store. When I try to remove and reinstall them I can no longer install.
