Android powered smartphones are renowned for the premium user experience that they offer and this is all thanks to background apps such as Google Play Services. The interesting thing about this app is that even though it is an important Android component, most Android fans have no idea what it does on their smartphones and some have even tried deleting it in order to free up storage space. Deleting Google Play Services is a bad idea because this background app provides core functionality to the Android operating system and without it, nothing would work properly anymore.
Google Play Services 19.5.68 Update
Taking into consideration the fact that Google Play Services is such an important component in the Android operating system, then no one should be shocked to find out that Google is updating it on a regular basis. In fact, a brand-new update which sports the 19.5.68 version number has started rolling out earlier this morning.
Since the new update is rolling out via OTA (over the air) channels, we are advising all Android fans to keep their smartphones connected to Wi-Fi or to mobile data so that they can be among the first ones to access all the improvements that it brings.
The new update for Google Play Services doesn’t come with any new or exciting features and instead, the update focuses on enhancing the overall performances of the Android operating system. The way that the new update does that by introducing a handful of software improvements and bug fixes.
The last thing that we want to mention about the new update is that all Android fans can also manually download and install it on their smartphones. This is possible because the new update is available to download in the form of APK.
