gpsGoogle Play services 5.0 has been released to Android devices globally. According to Google, the latest update includes Android wearable services APIs, Dynamic Security Provider and App Indexing, whilst also updating Google Play game services, Cast, Drive, Wallet, Analytics, and Mobile Ads. For more detail on these click here.

The reason why this Google Play Services update is particularly important to Xperia Z owners is that Sony pegged the older version as one of the main reasons of battery drain when users upgraded to KitKat. The latest version of Google Play services installed on our Xperia Z2 is 5.0.84. If your handset has been updated, have you noticed any change to your power management? We’d love to hear your comments below.
