Google Play Services is a core Android component that provides functionality such as authentication to Google services, synchronized contacts, access to all the latest user privacy settings and much more. Simply put, Google Play Services is the app that makes sure that the Android operating system is running at peak performance levels and that there aren’t issues.
Considering how important the role that Google Play Services has in the Android operating system, then no one should be surprised to find out that the app benefits from full fledged developer support. What this means is that Google Play Services is updated on a daily basis with software improvements and bug fixes. Therefore, today we are going to present the latest update for Google Play Services and all the “goodies” that it brings.
Google Play Services 19.6.29 Update
We are advising all Android fans to keep their smartphones connected to a stable Wi-Fi network today because a new update which sports the 19.6.29 version number is now rolling out via OTA (over the air) channels. Google Play Services is a background app and therefore, the new 19.6.29 update doesn’t come with any exciting features or graphics updates and instead, it aims to improve the overall performances of the Android operating system.
The way that the new update for Google Play Services is boosting the performances of the operating system is by introducing a bunch “under the hood” software tweaks that have been specially designed to tackle various issue which sometimes caused the Android smartphones to lag. Fortunately, this is not going to happen anymore.
The APK Variant
Android fans who are eager to access the new update for Google Play Services should be pleased to know that there is a way to install it ahead of everyone else. This can be done by manually downloading the new update in the form of APK (Android Package Kit).
