    I did a factory reset on my Note 4 due to battery usage, but now my Google Play Store isn't updating. I have version 4.8.20, but before the factory reset, it was 5.0.xx (can't remember the last two digits). Forcing the update by tapping the build version only tells me that Google Play is up to date - even if it clearly isn't.

    How do I get the latest version of Google Play without downloading it from somewhere? Will it eventually update by itself when the time comes? My phone had been factory reset about 12 hours before this post.

    I suggest just waiting. It will eventually update itself.

    The reason why I didn't want to download the apk is because I wanted to make sure that the phone is capable of updating the Google Play Store by itself. I don't want to have to keep manually downloading a new apk.

    How long would it usually take? I've been waiting for about 12 hours and tried clearing data, but to no avail.

    You may try restarting the phone. Every time I swap batteries several apps update.

    How does my phone know when it's time to update the Play Store? Is there something "special" that needs to happen for it to update?

    As I figure out it seems Google pulled out that update. I just uninstalled the update from my Note 8 and from my Galaxy 5. Both remains at 4.80 version after

    I never thought about that, since all I see when I Google the version number is that it has rolled out to include material and security updates. Nothing says that Google pulled the update. Anyone else want to chime on this?

    They did not pull the update. Google rolls out an update like this over several weeks. If you reset your phone it goes back to the factory install version and you have to wait for the update again. Many people who do not have new phones and did not do resets still haven't gotten the update yet. It's simply not finished rolling out. When it is completely finished rolling out, if you do a reset then, it will typically update within a day.

    I hope you are right. But I happened this on a Note 4, in 4 Galaxy S5 and in my Galaxy Note 8 tablet.
    Also I see that the restore/backup of SHealth us not working anymore.

    The day I got the N4 my play store app worked fine but the second it acted weird. So I went into the app manager and uninstalled the updates for the google play store. I then opened the play store and it auto-updated to 5.0.31. Is the auto update for your apps off?

    So why are people getting different updated version? Does it have anything to do with wireless providers?

    For some reason, I'm still on 4.8.20. This is true on my retired Infuse 4G, Note 2, and my current Note 4, even after uninstalling updates for Play Store. It automatically updates to 4.8.20. What gives?
