Google Play Services is an Android app that makes sure the rest of your apps are up-to-date. It does this by constantly checking that all installed apps have the latest available versions.
Google Play Services isn’t an app you shouldn’t leave uninstalled. Since Google introduced it and stuffed it with multiple added services to developers and users alike, it has become more and more core to the Android OS.
In addition to all the features it invisibly offers plus all the features-to-be, Google Play Services comes with Google Verify Apps, which might well be your first and last line of defense against malware.
With Google Play Services, you can authenticate Google services, synchronize your contacts, access the latest user privacy settings, and use higher quality location-based services that use less energy.
Besides all this, Google Play Services enhances the overall experience of using your device. It lets you search for things offline, provides you with more immersive maps, and improves the gaming experience by optimizing RAM.
Other menu options within Google Play Services let you manage all your apps (not necessarily the ones you have installed), establish location settings, and even manage your Google Fit account.
Google Play Services is an essential app for any device with an Android operating system. Without it, many other apps could start having problems.
