Android powered smartphones are renowned for the premium user experience that they offer and this why hundreds of millions of devices are running on Google’s operating system. However, what many people don’t know about the Android operating system is that there is a background app that is keeping it all together. The app that we are talking about is called Google Play Services and it has just received a new update. Without any further ado, let’s go ahead and check out everything there is to know about the new update.
Google Play Services 19.8.26 Beta Update
The first thing that we want to note about the latest Google Play Services update is that even though it might be rolling out via OTA (over the air) channels, not all Android fans are eligible to download it right away. The reason behind this is that the new update is exclusively available to Android beta users.
On the bright side of things, everyone who uses an Android powered smartphone is allowed to join the official Android Beta Program and the only thing that they need to do in exchange for the privilege to access all the latest updates ahead of everyone else is to provide the developers with solid feedback in case a bug or software glitch pops up.
Improved Software Stability
Google Play Services is a core Android app that provides functionality such as authentication to Google services, synchronized contacts, access to all the latest user privacy settings and much more. Therefore, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the new 19.8.26 beta update is equipped with a handful of bug fixes that have been specially created to improve the overall software stability of the Android operating system by tacking various issues which sometimes caused issues.
