Have you ever wondered what is the reason why hundreds of millions of smartphones are using Google’s Android operating system? The answer is simple. The operating system is equipped with tens of useful apps and it offers a premium user experience that is unparalleled. What many people don’t know about Android is that there is one app that keeps everything running at peak performance levels. The app is called Google Play Services and it has just received a new update.
Introducing: Google Play Services
Google Play Services is a background app and therefore, all the services and features that it offers are going unnoticed. This is why there are many reports of Android fans deleting Google Play Services from their smartphones in order to free up internal storage space only to find out that all other apps stopped working after Google Play Services was removed.
The reason behind this is that Google Play Services provides core functionality such as automatic updates from the Google Play Store, authentication services, synchronized contacts, access to all the latest user settings, offline maps and enhanced gaming experiences. Now, let’s find out everything there is to know about the latest update.
New 19.8.31 Update
If your smartphone is running on Android, then you are advised to keep your smartphone connected to a stable Wi-Fi network. The update is being rolled out via OTA (over the air) channels and everyone who is connected to Wi-Fi will receive it as soon as possible.
The question that all Android fans must be asking right now is what’s new? The answer to this question is bug fixes. We know that bug fixes are not as exciting as new features, but we are assuring everyone that they are more important than new features. The bug fixes introduced by the new update are tackling various issues that caused Android smartphones to lag.
