Server sync struggles

Not a whole lot we can do here, folks. Everybody sit tight, and we'll ride this out together.

Or, you can start mashing the "Check for update" button like we know you want to. KitKat's a'comin' ... eventually.

For what it's worth, the Google+ app on iOS is out-and-out crashing on launch. Something's up.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

its not OS update... its has something to do with play service event today..

jdevenberg says:

If this has anything to do with the Play event today, people will be pissed. Knocking out your customer's phone's ability to sync back to servers is the wrong way to do an update.

sprint4lyfe says:

That was quick. Down here too as of a couple minutes ago.

It just happened to me after I read this article.

Me too! Mine was fine, then I read the article and it started acting up. THANKS AC. (Jk, I love you guys)

I think it's the FAULT OF THIS ARTICLE!!, maybe if we remove the article then all things will be fine in the infinite Universe!, not that I'm superstitious, but if we participate to get funding $ for a Voo Doo Doctor to get rid of all the evil spirits of the Internet it might help? LOL!

Yea same thing here they need to fix this issue. Asap

I am having the issue. Some of the Google apps seem to be fine, definitely having syncing issues though.... My phone is a VZW Droid RAZR MAXX HD, so doubt it has anything to do w/ getting an OS update....

I just flashed a new ROM this afternoon, so I was kinda freaking out until I saw this. Thanks for the relieving heads up.

Darn. It keeps popping up while I'm trying to use YouTube.

Ha, I was looking for the play store update 2 days ago and got a sync error. I was connected to my wifi and everything. I tried it again and it worked but I was wondering what was up with that

i think they are migrating to kitkat 'Google Play Services'

coraphise says:

Weird, I tried syncing just to see if it was still an issue (because it's been so long :p)

G+, Keep, People Details and Sound Search failed to sync. Everything else apparently syncs fine. (There are a couple things I don't have installed though; books, tv...)

Google settings is also having issues. Play store is fine though. Knock on wood!

Google Voice messages on Android aren't working I can receive but not send and of course Grooveip is out since it needs a sign-in. Unfortunately I can't switch Grooveip off to use my normal non-gv number because I can't log in. So basically I can't use my phone as a phone.

I think I have too many eggs in one basket.

Clear data for Groove IP in the app manager.

Oh! Thanks that is a good idea I hadn't thought of. I will keep that in mind for next time.

This was happening to me in Chrome. I went into the App Info sections of the Android settings and cleared the cache and data, restarted the app, and was able to sync in fine.

Okay, so now I know I'm not crazy.
Besides, my mother had me tested.

I bet it has something to do with the press release today. Apple does this with their Mac Store whenever they have a press release. I'm betting we will see updated Google Apps and maybe (hopefully) the launch of 4.4 and N5/N10.

I know it's a little late, as the issue is probably resolved by now, but I just followed the following steps, and it worked right away:

Settings>Apps>All>
Select Google Play Services, then "Uninstall updates"
Once it is done, it should prompt you to re-install updates
When the update was installed again, everything worked fine

Mine still isn't working and I'm pissed!!!!! They need to do something about this!!!!

Is there any new information on this?

On my Motorola Atrix HD, 3 out my 4 Google accounts keep saying sync error and every time I look at them, different sync items are spontaneously unchecking themselves. I am however still receiving emails.

Everything on my Google Nexus 7, however, seems fine.

Kevin Dodd1 says:

Nice having to scroll to the bottom of the page, after all the comments. Kitkat does not solve Google sync problems. I upgraded to Kitkat, and still lose internet due to Google sync. I wouldn't mind if it just happened occasionally. But, it occurs pretty often.

Don't expect KitKat to solve anything... My Jelly Bean Nexus 10 was working fine until it updated to KitKat this morning, now, nothing works.
