  1. Go to settings (little icon on taskbar or in your main app drawer)
  2. Press on Apps
  3. Depending on what version of Android you are on either swipe right so it swaps to all apps or select it from the drop down
  4. Press wipe cache and data and then wipe cache or press on storage which will take you there.
  5. Restart your phone when it is done!

This now should be fixed but if worst comes to worst and it hasn’t, follow the steps again and wipe the cache from the Google Play Services and then the Google Services Framework. Don’t forget to restart your phone everytime you have wiped the cache off of a certain application!
