Google Play Services has been with the Android operating system right from the start and despite that, there are still many Android users who have no idea what this service does. Google Play Services is one of the most important components of the Android operating system and one of its primary tasks is to automatically update third-party apps. Therefore, Google Play Services is much more important than it might seem at first.
With that said, no one should be surprised to find out that Google puts a lot of effort into releasing a constant stream of APK updates for Google Play Services. Since Google Play Services is so important to the Android operating system, Google doesn’t want any bugs to make it crash and here is where the APK updates come in.
Google Play Services 15.0.90 APK
The latest update for Google Play Services sports the 15.0.90 build number and it arrived today (February 8th). This is a major update and all Android users should make sure to get it while it is fresh. The tricky part here is that this is an APK update that we are talking about and Android users who want to get it will need to do it manually.
Unfortunately, this is the case with all APK updates since they all need to be manually downloaded from Google’s official APK website and then installed on the designated smartphone. Also, Android users need to make sure that the “Unknown Sources” option which can be found in the Settings panel is enabled.
Since the Google Play Services is not a standalone feature and it is more of a service instead, Android users shouldn’t expect to find any new features or UI changes in the new APK 15.0.90 APK update. This is a maintenance update that comes with a plethora of bug fixes and software optimization tweaks.
