Have you ever wondered what is the most important component of the Android operating system? Some might say that the Google Play Store is the one that holds the title, but this is wrong. Despite not being as popular as the Google Play Store, Google Play Services is in fact the background app that is helping the Android operating system offer the premium user experience that it is renowned for.
The reason why Google Play Services is not as famous as other native Android apps is because it is a background app. This means that all the processes that Google Play Services takes care of such as making it possible for third-party apps to receive OTA (over the air) updates or synchronizing accounts passwords, for example, take place in the background. With that said, no one should be shocked to find out that Google Play Services is updated every single day.
Google Play Services 17.7.81 Beta Update
As previously noted, Google Play Services is updated on a regular basis and a brand-new one has been released today. The new update for Google Play Services sports the 17.7.81 version number and Google is rolling it out via OTA (over the air) channels right now. However, there is a catch. The only Android fans who can download the new update for Google Play Services are those who are enrolled in the beta program.
Since Google Play Services is a background app, then no one should be disappointed to find out that it doesn’t introduce any new features. Instead of bringing new features or visual changes, the latest update for Google Play Services focuses on bringing software tweaks and bug fixes instead which are aimed at improving the overall software stability of Google Play Services.
