Starting a couple of days ago, when I try to open Google Play on the P9 it quits after 1-2 seconds.
I've tried stopping the app, clearing the cache for Google Play Store and Google Play Service, restarting.
Play Store 8.0.73.R-all  [PR] 162689464
Play Services 11.3.02 (448-161239932)
Anyone else had similar? No idea what triggered it, there haven't been any OS updates / patches in many months.
I guess I'll follow the advice in this article, to go to www.APKMirror.com and download newer versions of both. There's point version upgrades for both Google Play Store and Services. Before I do that, can anyone verify this is typically a safe thing to do?
