Meanwhile, it ran well for us
However, in our tests, we did not face this server error. We tried accessing Google Play Store on Pixel 2, OnePlus 6T, and OnePlus 5T and for the three devices, we were able to download new apps and update existing ones.
Hence, the problem has not affected all Android users.
