Even though Google Play Services is one of the most important components in the Android operating system, it’s not as famous as the Google Play Store for example. The reason behind this is that Google Play Services is a background app and Android fans can’t see the features and benefits that it offers. For example, Google Play Services is responsible for automatically updating apps from the Google Play Store, providing core functionality such as account authentication for Google services and even synchronizing contacts.
Today we are talking about Google Play Services because the Android parent has just released a brand-new update. This is a high priority software release and it sports the 17.7.85 version number. Nonetheless, let’s go ahead and check out everything there is to know about this latest update.
Google Play Services 17.7.85 Update
If you enjoy the premium user experience that Android powered smartphones have to offer, then we are highly advising you to keep your smartphone connected to a stable Wi-Fi network and to download the new update as soon as possible because the Android parent is rolling it out via OTA (over the air) channels.
Since Google Play Services is a background app, then it should come as no surprise that the new update also comes with background changes. This means that even though Android fans might not be able to see what are the changes that the new update makes as they would do a new feature, for example, they are certainly going to fell these background changes because they are going to improve the overall performances of all Android powered smartphones.
The last thing that we want to note about the new Google Play Services update is that it also comes with a handful of bug fixes which are enhancing the software stability of the background app.
