Google Play issues..?

Anyone else experiencing issues with Google Play lately? I decided to do a full reset on my handset (which has worked wonders on battery life, btw!) and installed Google Play services right after the first boot. Everything seems to work fine except for in-app purchases. For some reason I’m getting “can’t contact licencing server” errors on all apps with in app purchases. Some paid apps from the play store refuse to run at all.
I have a feeling it might be the latest security patch from Google that’s causing the issue, but that’s just a guess…

Install the G apps and framework from meizu’s app store. That might work.
