Google Play Services is one of the most essential apps in the Android ecosystem and the reason why so many people don’t know what it does is because this is a background app. Google Play Services takes care of lots of important tasks and the one stands out the most is the fact that it enables both native Android and third-party apps and games to receive automatic OTA (over the air) updates.
Since Google Play Services is vital to the Android ecosystem, it shouldn’t come as a shock to anyone that Google is always updating it. The Android parent is renowned for releasing updates on a regular basis for its most important apps and a brand-new update has been recently released for Google Play Services. With that said, today we are going to check out everything there is to know about the latest update for Google Play Services.
Google Play Services 16.0.89 Update
The new update sports the 16.0.89 version number and it has been released yesterday (March 25th). The update is available to download in the form of APK directly from Google’s official APK website. However, Android fans who have installed previous APK updates are not required to manually download the new 16.0.89 release because it will be rolled out via OTA (over the air) channels to them.
The question that all Android fans must be asking themselves right now is if they should rush and download the update or not? The answer to this question is that all Android fans who enjoy the premium user experience and performances that the Android operating system has to offer should make sure to download the new update as soon as possible. The new update focuses on improving the overall performances of Google Play Services and it does this by introducing a handful of high priority software tweaks alongside a handful of bug fixes.
