WiFi and Internet Connections

Does your WiFi or internet connection have any of these issues?
  • Your internet connection is sometimes interrupted when online
  • Your WiFi speed seems fast on some days (or during certain hours) and slow on other days (or at times)
  • Some websites load quickly sometimes and slowly at other times
Here are some tips that may help improve your WiFi or Internet connection:
  • Other WiFi routers (for example, if your neighbours also have WiFi) or nearby equipment (for example, a TV) can affect your WiFi connection, speed or throughput
  • Check your router's manual (or online information) for recommendations and settings on these topics: "reducing interference", "reducing collisions" and "improving reliability"
  • Most WiFi routers use the same default "channel" for communication, so you may have better results by following your router's instructions to choose a specific "non-default" channel instead

  • Enable "Automatic date & time" in your device settings

How do I add friends to my "Google Play Players" list?

Inviting someone or accepting an invitation automatically adds that person to your "Google Play Players" list

Other issues

After choosing "Invite Players" and then clicking the "add player" button, no gamers are listed?
Your "Invite Players" game stays in the "Waiting room" if you add an "Auto-Match" player?
Gamer profiles are not displaying the correct profile images?

Here are some things to try:

In the device settings, click the "Apps" icon and try the following steps for each of the "Google Play Games", "Google Play Services" and "Google Play Store" apps:
  • Scroll through the apps to find the "Google Play Games" app icon
  • Click the app icon to display a list of options for that app
  • Scroll to the "Permissions" button and click it to display the app's permissions
  • Make sure all permissions for the app are enabled
  • Click back to return to the list of app options
