Major reasons why this occurs include:
- Google Playstore app malfunctioning on your device.
- Old version of Google Playstore and requires update.
- Not having Google Playstore installed.
- Google Playstore not compatible on device.
Due to some of this reasons above many have not been able to install Android applications and because of this might have to resort to asking someone to send the application to you via various means such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, Xender, Whatsapp and so on.
But sincerely these reasons shouldn't hinder you at all from getting that Android application you so much desire by yourself without any help or support.
Yes majorly you will argue that, if its not Playstore i will not download or receive on my device; that's how much trust many have for Playstore, but i tell you there are other stores and websites that are very trusted too like Playstore, infact some of them work alongside Playstore (immediately an android app update comes up on Playstore, they also get updated).
