Despite being a staple feature of the Android operating system, there are still lots of Android fans who have no idea what Google Play Services does. The reason behind this is simple, Google Play Services is a background app and it runs “behind the scenes”. Since the background app is such a vital component of the Android operating system, Google is always improving it through new updates. With that said, Google has released a brand-new update for Google Play Services and today we are going to present you with all there is to know about it.
Google Play Services 15.0.90 APK
The latest update for Google Play Services changes the background app’s version number to 15.0.90 and it can be downloaded right now. However, there is a catch to this newest update. Google has released it in the form of APK which means that it isn’t being rolled out over the air and that all interested Android fans are required to manually download it.
How to Install the New Google Play Services Update
Even though having to manually download and install an update might be annoying to some Android fans, on the bright side of things, the process is fairly simple. All that Android fans need to do is to enable the “Unknown Sources” option on their smartphones to make them compatible with APK updates and then simply head over to Google’s website and download the update. All that is left now is to tap on the recently downloaded APK file and wait for the installation process to be complete.
Google usually introduces new features and graphical updates with all its latest APs, but this is not the case for the new Google Play Services APK. Since this is a background app, the new 15.0.90 APK focuses on improving the overall performances of Google Play Services and it does it through bug fixes.
