Unhappy [Q] Can't download to phone from the web Play Store

No matter what I try to do, I can't seem to get my Nexus 4 to download things remotely from the install button on the Play Store website. It does it fine for the Nexus 7, but not for my phone.

I choose my phone, click install and the button changes to installed, but nothing happens on my phone. What could be causing this?

I have the latest Cyanogenmod. It has never been a problem before now with any other versions. It seems as if the Play Store knows the device exists since it is in the list when I choose to install something. The phone also receives push notifications from PushBullet and Google Voice.

Did it break with the update or randomly?

It seems that when I did the most recent update a few months back when I wiped the phone is when it started. I wiped the phone again I believe after that and re-flashed the ROM.

Still doesn't work. I noticed also, in the drop down list for my Nexus 4, it says the last date used is 'undefined.'

I also don't seem to see it in the new Android Device Manager. Only my Nexus 7.
