Android is amazing! It is one of the most popular operating systems for smartphones, next to Apple’s iOS.
Android is developed and administered by Google, one of the most prominent companies of the century. The company started its existence from a very advanced, yet user-friendly search engine. Google currently owns various services like YouTube, the Google Play Store, where you can buy music, books, games, and more, and other ranges of products like the Google Chromecast, the Pixel line of smartphones that features impressive performance for a reasonable price.
One of the most impressive aspects of Android is how it runs on billions of devices across the globe. Imagine having to develop an operating system that is so good it can run on most smartphones. It’s a lot like how Windows is for computers.
However, Android is somewhat more dynamic than Microsoft’s computer operating system because it receives updates way more frequently, especially in terms of layout, features, and looks.
To ensure that Android works well on all devices, Google introduced Google Play Service. It’s an app that comes pre-installed on every single Android smartphone. It’s Google’s app to keep your smartphone up to date!
The app does a lot of tasks – It updates all Google-based apps and other apps downloaded from the Google Play Store, it helps improve offline searches and navigation, and additional multiple stability fixes.
The app reached version 20.42.14. The update is in beta stage for the moment, and you can download it if you are impatient to get the latest improvements Google has to offer. However, if you are not in a hurry, you should wait for the global rollout.
