Google Play store downloads pending

Hi there,


I've been using FREEDOME for a couple of years across a number of devices and have recently installed it on my Google Pixel 2 XL. I have enountered an error with this device unfortunately - whenever I want to download or update an app from the Google Play store on the device the download sits at pending and doesn't download while FREEDOME is turning on and protecting my device. After turning FREEDOME off the download will start shortly after and complete successfully. This means that my device isn't updating apps in a timely fashion and is a little annoying.


Has anyone else experienced this issue and is there a fix?

    Hello  Everyone,


    Could you please check whether the devices affected have the update setting selected for WiFi networks only? If it is, please try to turn it on for all networks and see if the problem reproduces.

  • I had mine set to auto-update apps over WiFi only, but even after changing it to auto-update over any network the apps are still sat at Download pending...
