  • This one is a bit weird but try putting your phone in airplane mode. Then switch it back to normal mode. This has helped many people get Google Play Store working again. 
  • If your play Store is not working on Wi-Fi, it very simply could be an issue with your Wi-Fi only. Check if your Wi-Fi is working! Simple!
  • If still nothing works, lets just go to doing the Indian jugaad. Switch off your router, wait for ten seconds, and switch it back on. It may just cause your Wi-Fi to get back to work again.
