Despite being one of the most vital Android components, there aren’t that many Android fans who even know what Google Play Services does. The reason why Google Play Services isn’t as renowned as the Google Play Store is because it is a background app. Although, the fact that Google Play Services is a background app doesn’t mean that it’s not important. Just take for example how many updates Google is releasing for this service every other week and you will understand that Google Play Services plays a major role in the Android operating system.
Nonetheless, today we are going to present what are the top functions of Google Play Services and also introduce the app’s latest APK update which sports the 15.1.78 beta version number. Without any further ado, let’s get into it.
Google Play Services 15.1.78 Beta APK
As we already noted, the new update for Google Play Services sports the 15.1.78 beta version number and it can be downloaded in the form of APK. For those who are not familiar with APK updates, what makes them different from normal ones is the fact that users are required to manually download them. Yes, we know that having to manually download and install updates can be quite annoying but its all worth it in the end because APK updates give everyone access to all the latest features and software tweaks ahead of everyone else.
Since Google Play Services is a background app, Android fans who download the new update will not find any new features. Instead of introducing new features, the 15.1.78 beta APK focuses on improving the overall software stability of the Android operating system and it does this by introducing a handful of bug fixes and software tweaks to Google Play Services.
Considering that Google Play Services is the feature which takes care of important matters such as storing passwords and synchronizing important data over multiple accounts, we advise all Android fans to get the new update.
