What’s interesting about Google Play Services is that even though this is a vital component of the Android operating system, most Android users have no idea what it does on their smartphones. Not just that, but there are hundreds of reports that show some Android users have deleted Google Play Services from their smartphones only to be left wondering why all other native and third-party apps malfunctioning. Well, the reason why this happened is because Google Play Services is basically the feature that keeps all apps in check.
Google Play Services is used in order to store private information such as passwords, user IDs and even bank account info. However, the most important thing that Google Play Services does is that it helps both native and third-apps get automatic OTA (over the air) updates. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone to find out that Google Play Services is constantly updated via APKs.
Google Play Services 15.0.90 APK
The latest version of Google Play Services that has been made available in the form of APK (android package kit) sports the 15.0.90 version number. This is a high priority download for all Android users who want to make sure that their smartphones are running at peak performance levels. On the downside of things, there is a catch to installing APK updates.
Installing APK Updates
All Android users who want to get their hands on the latest software tweaks and bug fixes that Google’s new update brings for Google Play Services need to manually download and install the APK on their smartphones. Yes, we know. Having to manually install updates can be annoying but it’s all worth it in the end.
The only thing that Android users need to do other than to manually download the latest version of Google Play Services from Google’s official APK website is to enable the “Unknown Sources” option on their smartphones.
