When it comes to powerful operating systems, Google is the best company at creating them and there is no doubt about that. We are not talking only about Android-powered smartphones, but also about smart TVs. In fact, Google has changed the way people get their daily entertainment when it launched the version of Android for smart TVs. The reason why we are saying this is because Google’s operating system has made it possible for smart TV users to access video streaming apps such as YouTube, HBO Go and Netflix for example.
Smart TVs are renowned for the premium user experience that they offer and the interesting thing about this is that most Android fans have no idea that Google Play Services is the background app which is responsible for that.
Google Play Services takes care of many core functionality features such as synchronized contacts, giving users and apps access to all the latest user privacy settings and much more. However, since Google Play Services is a background app, it fails to get the same recognition as the Google Play Store.
Google Play Services (for Android TV) 17.7.85 Update
Since we are talking about Google Play Services that helps Google’s Android TV operating system provide smart TV users with powerful features and stable software experience, then we should mention that Google Play Services has just been updated. The new update sport the 17.7.85 version number and Android fans should be pleased to find out that they can download it just by simply opening their smart TVs and then connecting them to a stable internet connection.
Google Play Services is a background app and therefore, no one should be surprised to find out that the new update which sports the 17.7.85 version number introduces a handful of software tweaks instead of new features. These software tweaks are actually more important than new features because they are making sure that the operating system doesn’t crash.
