How To Fix 'Gmail Is Having Trouble With Google Play Services'


Google Play Services is an android system application that is installed on almost 5 billion android devices. This system app runs in the background and performs important tasks needed to run android apps. A few years ago there was no such application for android phones. But in 2012 Google Play Services was launched. Its function is to update android apps especially all the Google apps like Gmail, Google+, Play Store, Google Play games etc. Prior to its launch, the Google apps were updated only after a phone's system update. So at that time phone users had to wait for the manufacturers to release a system update.

But after the launch of Google Play Services, it is now possible to update Google apps. As the technology has now advanced and Google Play Services only updates the required code of an android app without updating the entire app. This also saves data as users now have to download fewer data. Other major tasks that it performs is to act as an android system administrator which lets you locate, lock or erase your lost android phone and providing a communication bridge between android apps.

So, you see how important is the Google Play Services app for an android phone. Without it, most android apps will not work including Google apps. So in this post, we will talk about a common error that most android apps face with the Play Services app.
