There are lots of important components that are responsible for the premium user experience that the Android operating system offers. However, the most important one is Google Play Services. The interesting thing about Google Play Services is that even though it takes care of high-priority tasks, many Android fans have no idea what it does on their smartphones. The reason behind this is that Google Play Services is a background app.
For those who are unfamiliar with Google Play Services, they should know that it is used to update apps from the Google Play Store, to provide core functionality such as authentication to Google services, synchronized contacts, access to all the latest user privacy settings and much more. Since Google Play Services is such an important component in the Android operating system, then no one should be shocked to find out that it’s updated on a daily basis.
Google Play Services 18.7.19 Update
Android fans should be pleased to find out that Google Play Services has just received a new update. The update sports the 18.7.19 version number and Google is rolling out via OTA (over the air) channels. Moreover, the update can also be manually downloaded and installed in the form of APK (Android package kit). We have to mention that APK releases are exclusive to Android-powered smartphones that have the “Unknown Sources” option enabled.
Improved Software Stability
Considering the fact that Google Play Services is a background app, then Android fans should not be disappointed to find out that the new update doesn’t come with any new features and instead it introduces a bunch of “under the hood” software tweaks. These tweaks are making small changes to the performances of Google Play Services so that the software stability of the Android operating system can be enhanced.
