One of the things that makes the Android operating system so popular is the plethora of features and apps that it has to offer. What many Android fans don’t know is that the operating system is packed with tens of background apps that are making sure everything is running at peak-performance levels. Google Play Services is the perfect example of that. Even though this background app might not be as popular as the Google Play Store, it’s actually more important because of the tasks that it takes care of.
For the unfamiliar, Google Play Services is the background app that provides core functionality such as contact synchronization, offline maps, immersive gaming experiences, and more importantly, it enables both native and third-party apps to receive automatic updates. Talking about updates, Android fans should be pleased to find out that Google Play Services has just received a new one.
Google Play Services 19.8.29 Update
Considering the fact that Google Play Services is one of the most essential Android components, then no one should be shocked or surprised to find out that the Android parent is updating its performances on a daily basis via software updates. As previously noted, Google Play Services has just received a new update and it sports the 19.8.29 version number.
All Android fans are advised to download the new update as soon as possible because instead of adding new features or visual changes, the update focuses on improving the software reliability of the operating system. The way that the new update does that is by adding a handful of bug fixes that are taking the performances of Google Play Services to the next level.
The last thing that we want to note about the new Google Play Services update is that it is rolling out via OTA (over the air) channels. Therefore, the update should pop up in the notifications panel all Android fans.
