The blog post says it works through "Google Play Services," which is a default (unremovable) app on all android devices that has pretty much every permission including the location permission that this feature would need for GPS positioning (note, I seem to be able to disable some of the permissions, not sure if that because of the new permission features in Android 6 or because I run the Cyanogen version of Android). The blog said it would be work on every Android phone running at least 2.3 (which is over 5 years old now - the blog says 99% of all Android phones are compatible, which matches the stats here).
Note - not an expert on Android by any means, this info may be wrong.

Dalle recensioni di Google Play Services.
For what it's worth if you don't want to sideload the APK, I just went to Google Play Services in the Play Store app using this link: [link]
The update was available so I updated from there instead of APKMirror. I'm now also on 9.0.83.
UNINSTALL GOOGLE PLAY SERVICES IT WILL LITERALLY KILL YOUR FAMILY.
Seriously though the reviews are worse than I thought.
Ok. Now that we know for sure those are the 1gb variant, we can atleast try to do some troubleshooting.
Hope it helps.
Make sure Google Play service & Google app both are updated to the latest version.
Change your device's language to English (US). Navigate to Settings > Language & Input > Change it to English (US).
Clear your Google App data & Google play service. [To do this , Go to settings > Apps > Find the Google app in the list. Click on it. there will be something like storage. Click on it. > Now click clear data. You can also do it by going to app info ] This will clear all the previous settings on your Google App. Also, make sure your Google App language is set to English (US).
Once done, just tap and hold the Home Button of your device and you will see a message pop from the bottom asking you get started with 'Google Assistant'. Enjoy!
So I think it was a Google play services bug.
Instead of just doing: apps>Google play> uninstall updates... Do it to the play services app as well.
Then go here and update: [link]
That has seemed to fix my issues...
Settings -> Security -> Device Administrators and temporarily deactivate Android Device Manager.
1) Go to Settings -> Apps.
2) Find Google Play services -> Uninstall updates.
3) Go to [link] and update Google Play services.
Reactivate Android Device Manager
Well, he is a dice player... You probably rolled a critical fail.
Try making sure your google play store and google play services are up to date.
This worked for me.
1) Go to Settings / Apps.
2) Swipe down until you find Google Play services. Tap on it. Tap on "Uninstall updates".
That's strange. Did you try this?
Try updating Google Play services, that resolved it for me. But it did not work for another user who reported their services were up to date. [link]
Just to confirm:
On LDPlayer, re-enabling the Google Play Services & updating it (visit this link in the browser of your emulator https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.gms ) fixed the problem for me.
Mine is doing the same thing. Tap the upgrade button and nothing. Right back to the Google music home screen.
Edit.. Had to force a play services update and it works now.
Anytime I reset my watch for any reason, first thing I do is go HERE via web browser and force push to my watch rather than waiting for the rollout. After that, I force Play Store to update installed apps, and install the ones I want. Then I charge to full before use.
This cuts the 2-3 days of lousy battery life down to 1 at most.
Anyone know why on my phone in the play store it says play services was last updated Aug 16, but when I look it up on my PC here it says it was updated Sep 21?
edit: signed up for beta, got a play services update, still no 8.0 update
edit2: finally just sideloaded it... wasted enough time hitting check for updates today...
Sometimes updates roll out for different devices at different times to avoid server overload. Try going to the Play Services page in the Store an seeing if it'll let you manually update.
Try updating Google Play Services to the latest version (9.something) and make sure you don't have background data restricted for it. I just did this and it fixed the problem for me.
Let me know if that works.
Try updating Google Play Services to the latest version (9.something) and make sure you don't have background data restricted for it. I was having the same problem and this solved it.
That should link to the google play services app. If it has an update button click update.
If it does not then reboot your phone and check for app updates.
Weird, does the play store, gmail, youtube e.t.c work? Did you flash the 5.1 ROM (shouldn't be a problem, but it'll help me find the cause). Check the date and time is correct, and whether you can update the services from the play store
Edit: [link] is the link for the google services
It's probably for their autocorrect/prediction algorithm. I think it's a bit nonsensical to be worried about Google's own keyboard for permissions really when you're using Google's operating system. Google Play Services pretty much has access to absolutely everything on your phone anyway. Don't think a keyboard to change your visual style is gonna make much of a difference.
Have a look at the permissions here. Don't take my word for it though, you can find plenty of information about GPS all over the internet and what it has access to.
I would try clearing Play Store cache and then click on this link to attempt a reinstall\
This is really strange, I've never had an issue with Google Play Services like this. It would always auto-update, on my Galaxy Nexus, S3, and G4, all rooted
I've had the same issues got awhile now. I did a search and found a thread that eventually linked me to the Google play services page in the play store, seems it wasn't auto updating. [link]
Edit: I just now noticed this so I'm unsure if this will help or not, but I remembered your thread and thought you might want to check
Edit 2: I also came across a thread that says to disable the 5ghz wifi frequency.
I updated mine today and have 9.6.83, you might try seeing if it will let you update. I had trouble finding it in the app store on my phone, you might try clicking this link on your phone. If it gives you the option to update then do it.
Otherwise you can try the app recommended in this thread to check and see if Safety Net is working. That's about all I can think of.
cm13 has google play services available? [link]
The app uses it widly, especially for localization, so it wouldn't work without it
edit I see that there are some known issues with cm13 and google play services :/ [link]
try to update it if you can, or I'm not sure what else to suggest you at the moment
The is no separate so for Chrome Webview. The Chrome app installs the Webview and disables the old Android System Webview app.
Permission details can be found here.
It lists the microphone as being used to "record audio".
There is probably no benefit from disabling it.
All you will be doing is limiting what your phone can do.
Yes. I received it today
I opted in for the google app and google play services beta program and an update for google app arrived today which activates the google assistant. But first you need to update the google play services beta.
>This component provides core functionality like authentication to your Google services, synchronized contacts, access to all the latest user privacy settings, and higher quality, lower-powered location based services.
>Google Play services also enhances your app experience. It speeds up offline searches, provides more immersive maps, and improves gaming experiences.
Apps may not work if you uninstall Google Play services.
>Also, haha bookmarks? I guess people don't switch to iPhone or Android because they font want to lose their precious bookmarks? Please
Chrome is available on iphone and android, so your bookmarks go with you:
Things like that absolutely do matter. It's all about ecosystems these days. I'm heavily invested in both the MS and Google ones - I use OneDrive, Drive, Gmail, Outlook, Onenote, etc - so if a platform doesn't have them, I won't use it. Some people are like that with things like autofill forms and bookmarks, as hard as that might be for you to believe.
Wait is that the same as the Google app? I can't find a separate Play Services package.
EDIT: Here it is for anyone else looking. No idea why it didn't show up in the store search, had to go through google in the browser.
But it's still running in the background, collecting data, phoning home to Google, all of that fun stuff. I mean, just look at all the permissions Google Play Services "needs". It gets that access regardless of whether you "sign in" to your google accounts.
Whoops. Thought I was replying to the Android Preview sub, not the pixel sub.
I'm on the Android beta O build. The battery stats display like that natively in Android O.
As for the long battery life the only thing I'm really a stickler for is app permissions. I have about 130 apps installed and every single one of them I checked and denied permissions. While I have never verified if it helps or not, apps like Capital One or Amazon don't need access to my location, contacts, messages, microphone, camera, storage, ect, ect.
While it may not seem like much if an app uses 1% of your battery, what if I had 75 apps that "only" used a half percent. Individually that's nothing, collectively that's over half your battery for the day for nothing.
Now that I said all that. The Android O build has been an improvement with how long the phone lasts and how much SOT I get. Previous to the O build I would last about 16 hours a day with about 3.5-4 SOT.
I am completely stock and have only done updates OTA. I have seen some people resolve your issue with updating the Google play services to the beta channel. You can do that in the Google play store here. [link]
I just went through this... it requires Google Assistant on the phone. If you don't have the assistant, it's possible to install, with a little bit of effort. I'm not sure it'll work on 5.1 but it does work on 6.0+. here goes:
Go the google play services page in the play store:
scroll to the bottom and click the button to enroll in the beta program.
repeat the process with the 'google' app.
wait a few minutes for the beta process to complete and install the updated versions of the apps.
set your phone language to US English (the Home should also be set to US English, it just works better that way)
you should now have the option to link the account
The update for Google Play Services intended to resolve that network flooding problem hasn't necessarily rolled out to your phone yet. The press jumped the gun a bit.
If you choose "Become a beta tester" for Google Play Services that'll get you there faster if you need to. Here's a link to the store: [link]
UPDATE! I win!!!! All working now!
What I did:
1. Delete all Google accounts on device
2. Delete Play Games application
3. Delete Google Services application ([link])
5. Update Google Services
6. Install Dissidia, then open it
7. When game ask, install Play Games, then login in it.
8. Now all work!
Look for beta sign up in there.. once you sign up for beta, it should be a few minutes, go to play store under the my apps and games, you should see a beta category.. Click update on Google play services
Have you tried the Google Play Services Beta? This resolved this issue for some people during the Oreo beta program for the Essential PH-1.
Google Play Services
Try updating to the March patch. Settings>system>system update>check for update.
If there is no update available join the Google Play store Beta and try those steps again.
Here is the link to enroll in the beta.
You can just directly to the Play Store listing rather than going through settings like OP. (I'm guessing that's what you did to enroll in the beta.)
Once an update is installed by the Play Store, either automatically or by you hitting the button, it'll show in settings again. But I doubt the install source affects anything; I think it was just OP's way of getting people to the Play Store listing.
Also, Disable and Force Stop being greyed out is normal.
Remove all Google accounts in Account settings. Look for Google Play Services and choose Uninstall Updates. Restart your phone. Upon boot up go to Account Settings again and re-Add your Google account. Now when that's done, manually update Play services from this link:
Finally, login to PGo as usual.
It must have been a background Google Play Services update. I just forced an update on mine and voila, the lock releases immediately!
Thanks for the heads up and theory on what might have fixed it.
[link] is the link to try to force the update for those interested
Google Play services isn't an app that'll show up in your app draw and might not even show up when you're looking at the list of apps that need updating.
So if you're lucky, you may still be on an older version.
Go to Application Settings->Google Play Services->Uninstall Updates. Restart your phone and manually update it from this link:
One thing to note is that Play Services is a crucial component for Pokemon Go. It has this trait where it updates in the background regardless if you turned off Automatic Updates on Play Store. This same privelage is what allows "Instant Apps" from automatically updating whether you're on Mobile Data or WiFi connection. That auto-update can sometimes spell disaster if it chooses to do so on a spotty internet connection.
Region shouldn't be effected with the check for update button :S
Check if your play services is upto date on your phone (or opt into it's beta) [link]
I get updates on my tablet as soon as they're available now by pressing the check for update button
Google services are what the play store basically uses to integrate Google products into other apps
You can get it here
It might be best to use that link to uninstall it, then restart your phone, then reinstall it so that you get a clean install
Hi! Make sure that the Location Permission for Pokemon Go is enabled. You can also look for "Google Play Services" in Application Settings and UNINSTALL UPDATES. Then open this link on Playstore and manually update it:
Hope it helps!
I second this. Again what you want to do is Turn Off first your GPS. Search for "Google Play Services" in Application Settings. Select UNINSTALL UPDATE. After that, manually update your Play Services by opening this link to your Playstore:
I'm on 5.0.1 too, and I've seen on the reviews on the Store that there's a bunch of people with the same issue, and they're using different Android versions. It's weird it's not trending yet
Switch Off your GPS. Look for "Google Play Services" in Application Settings and UNINSTALL UPDATES. Now manually update it by opening this link to your Play Store:
Login as usual.
Ok try this method: Sign Out from PoGo and turn off GPS. Go to Settings->Application Settings->Pokemon Go->Force Stop. Repeat again with Settings->Application Settings->Google Play Services->Uninstall Updates. Now open this to your Play Store and manually update Google Play Services:
After updating, open GPS and login to PoGo.
Try these steps:
I second this suggestion as well as clearing the data/cache. To make it easier to get to the app/settings you can do what I do and save the web play store link as a bookmark:
Then you can open it in the play store app, and opt in to the beta at the bottom.
well looks like your Google Maps is working properly after you updated it. Maybe try SigningOut/Sign In to PGo? Another troubleshooting step is to look for 'Google Play Services' in Application Settings then 'Uninstall Updates' (Upper right corner of the screen). Then Update it manually thru here:
I'm guessing you're referring to the Google Play Services app, which isn't the same thing as the Google Play Store app (or even the Play Games app!).
The Play Services, among other things, act as a sort of Android update for devices that don't actually have the latest Android updates installed. For this reason, exactly what it does varies depending on the device you install it onto - it doesn't need to fill in as much functionality on a "current" device.
For whatever reason, on my older phone, the only way to get it to update was to manually use that store link - it never showed up in my regular list of apps that had updates available. So first off, load that up on your Tab and see if it offers an update.
Failing that, you can also try going into your device settings and using the application manager to remove all updates for the Play Services (purely for the sake of testing - you can re-install them all afterwards, and will probably want to). In my experience, MSA runs fine with old versions - even if it likes to throw up a message saying it'll be unable to start without updates immediately before it starts up fine anyways.
First, some background. Google Play and Google Play Services are two separate apps. (On Android, apps are uniquely identified by "package name", and the one for Google Play is com.android.vending whereas for Google Play Services is com.google.android.gms.)
It is Play's job to update Play Services. (You can see the Play Services listing here.) It is also Play's job to update itself.
Two guesses as to what might be going on:
I'm not sure what the solution is, but here are some things I'd try:
Did you already check if the Location Permission for PGo has been enabled? You can also try to manually update Google Play Services by opening this link to your Playstore:
If you're getting 3 days this probably won't help.
1) Go to Settings / Apps.
2) Swipe down until you find Google Play services. Tap on it. Tap on "Uninstall updates".
3) Go to [link] and update Google Play services.
It eventually started working when I updated my android wear app, and updated anything else that needed to be done.
Also check to see if you need this to be updated:
Other than that, it took a day or two to iron itself out and finally start working, or however long it takes for the watch to sync.
Google the link for Play Services on the Play Store or here it is if you're lazy, scroll all the way down to the bottom and you'll see the standard Beta signup dialog.
If the top app in battery usage is Google Play Services, then it's likely Android Pay, which recently replaced Google Wallet. The last update caused my battery to drain in 8 hours vs 48ish. You'll need to disable Android Pay as a device administrator, disable the app, uninstall the updates to Google Play Services, and then allow the app store to update it. The updates can't be uninstalled from the app manager, you'll need the link provided to open the Play Store and uninstall from there.
very strange, I'll try to look into it on samsung developer test lab.
In the while, check if your google play services are up-to-date [link]
Do you have Google Play Services installed and updated? [link]
What version of android are you running?
I'd like to have your phone to investigate :(
I haven't been able to figure out what's causing this. It doesn't seem to be a widespread issue so i can only assume it's some conflict with specific roms, an Xposed module, or some maybe even some other apps (one with an accessibility service?).
Could people who are experiencing the issue answer these:
The last update updated Google play services. Make sure yours is up-to-date by checking for an update on the play store. The current version on my devices is 9.6.83. I don't think this is the cause but you never know.
If you running the pro version can you try downloading the free version and see if it happens there too?
Try making sure every Android phone/tablet in the house has this updated. I would even recommend being a beta tester to get the latest version. I have been for a while, but I updated my girlfriends phone yesterday and I did not have the issue last night. This might be a fluke, but it is worth trying.
Hmm, judging from that it seems like your phone isn't going into doze often enough. Even when I use my phone heavily it has way more deep sleep than 300mhz. Your pic reminds me of my beta experience.
It's hard to say whether or not restoring your backup is part of the issue, since there are so many users that say a reset didn't even help... But I honestly think testing anything would be worth the trouble to get that fixed. I'd even go as far as installing the Google play services beta just for the heck of it, as it was another offered solution in the past.
Go here first. If there isn't an update available, download an apk from here. They just updated it to 9.8.77 today. If you're on a 6P, you'll want the 440 package.
> This is pretty fundamentally just how Android works
No, it's not, or else AOSP would come with an open source implementation of GCM..
The issue isn't that Signal uses GCM for transmitting data. The issue is that it requires Google Play Services to be installed on your device. You should read about how many permissions GPS "requires", and you'll understand that if it's installed properly (as a system app), your device is as good as compromised, and using Signal is a moot point since google, if they wanted, could easily and silently keylog you (among other things)
It's insane why people in /r/privacy are still recommending Signal with its shitty "requirement" of having Google Play Services.
go HERE from your phone, see if it lets you update. Or, as citizen mentioned, maybe the latest update removed the setting.
wow you waited for 4 hours?! It might be faster if you do this:
may need to uninstall updates from google play as well. Does it just say "google play has stopped"? Try disabling google play services, and re-enabling it.
If so, try logging into google play on your computer.
Go there ^, and login to the Gmail account linked to your phone. Might be able to push it to your phone that way.
Interesting... hard to say anything further at this point without being able to see the logs on the phone. The only thing I can say is that the Google API is refusing the connect to the Chromecast for some reason -- even though I have manually spoon-fed it with the name and address of the device.
The most obvious thing at the moment would be to check whether either one of [link] or [link] is requiring an update.
Try updating your google play services:
if that link doesnt work due to region, simply go to google and type "google play services" and the app store link should be one of the firs toptions
Try this: Application Settings>Google Play Services>Uninstall Updates>Manually update Play Services via this link:
Now after updating Play Services, toggle your GPS to High Accuracy then logon to PoGo as usual. *You will be prompted to accept Google's ToS for Location Services to able to use High Accuracy mode. If you select 'Disagree', Location mode will revert to 'Phone Only' until such time you accept the terms.
Can you "uninstall" from there?
Are you on VZW? You are the second person who's said their options are grayed out. Mine aren't on O DP3 or the June 7.1.2 patch (Google edition Pixel).
Alright. Well I didn't have bluestacks installed initially. After I loaded bluestacks up for the first time. I hit the search button in the top left corner. Typed "Fallout Shelter" into it and hit the 'search Play for Fallout shelter" button. I installed it, it made me login using my google account. I had to enter my password on 2 different google screens. Fallout shelter then required me to update google play services before I could launch fallout shelter. [link]
If the Google Play Services option to uninstall updates is grayed out that sounds to me as though it needs to be re-updated. The Google Apps all rely on that and won't function properly until it's up to date. I'm surprised you aren't being prompted to update it! There's usually a triangle symbol in the notification bar that lets you do so when necessary.
Try going to the link below on your phone. It should ask if you want to open it in the Play Store and from there you can update. I suppose you could try pushing it via a computer's browser as well but I would think it might not work if you're having issues.
Edit: You could also try clearing the cache in that same area. SOmetimes that helps with a stuck app. Unsure if it'll help here but can't hurt to try.
First, go here on your web browser - [link]
Force install it to your watch. Weather won't work at all unless you have a recent version. Sometimes a watch fails to update Play Services on its own for a few days after a reset.
Next, hold the crown and open Google Assistant, then swipe it away. This forces a location update on the watch. Check to see if Weather is working for you.
If that doesn't work, and no other options offered here help you, consider resetting and re-pairing it.
Okay... Umm... Download Google play services from here if you still have the play store.
Nice, it works for you via bluestacks, join the other people.
However others aren't so fortunate when it doesn't work, so by (re)installing the needed services like so [link]
errors like /u/the_importer or OP had should be resolved afterwards.
The reason why one might do so is due to the nature on how bluestacks works. It's irrelevant to say it works for you since that doesn't help other people who have this issue.
I don't think you can monitor it, you can try opening this link in Google play and seeing if there's an update, or you could try going to settings>apps>Google play services and uninstalling updates
Someone beat me to the punch, but just in case you missed it, here it is.
As a background, Google Play Services is updated every ~6 weeks. Google then does their typical 2-3 week rollout period. The last update was November 30th. That puts us on track for January 11th (or within a week thereof), and then 2-3 weeks worst case if you have bad luck.
Basically, this should all be working again for the vast majority of users in time for the February security update.
Did you try clearing data of "Google play store" and "Google play services"?
To do that,
Follow same procedure for Google Play services.
After doing this, It should solve "Google play services stopped working" problem. If it doesn't,
WhatsApp data backup:
Yes. Google Play Services is "just" another app in the play store, and gets updated the same way as other apps - [link]
For anyone else experiencing this particular issue, try updating your Google Play Services version: [link]
You can update Google Play Services from the Play Store: [link]
If you want to check the status of your Google Play Services, you can use this 3rd party app: [link]
To turn on background data, follow this guide: [link]
Make sure your Google Play Services is up to date
Try updating your Google Play Services version: [link]
Here's a store link so you can check your version: [link]
Open this link in Playstore on his phone to check if it is in need of updating:
You might have a bad update. Go to apps, uninstall google play services updates and reinstall from [link]
Check if your Play Services is up to date. Open the link to your Playstore to update then try to logon to PGo:
They have staged roll outs for the beta too
Go here and see if it has an update button [link]
Link to Beta Opt-In: [link]
Link to update to beta once you are opted-in: [link]
update google play services
Do you have Google Play Services installed? I'm pretty sure it's required.
My friend had the same problem update this: [link]
I've tried bluestack,andy and cheap tablet all stuck on intro.
Use Droid4x, install Google Play Services and Google Play Games if you want to use google's account and then manually install Kai-ri-Sei APK or use Market Helper to change your device type to something that the game will recognize on Play Store. This emulator will work, no black screen.
Tutorial with pictures
Kai-ri-Sei Million Arthur APK
Google Play Services
Use web browser to install GooglePlayServices directly to the emulator since the emulator's Play Store app were unable to find it
Just wait a bit and the play store will update itself. Also check if you can update the play services: [link] (open this on the phone)
you've gotta click this link and click 'update' if it shows. if not, you've gotta sideload the APK manually
Try updating Google Play services. May be related to a SafetyNet change.
You should bookmark this so next time you enroll it is much more easier to leave the beta program.
When people say "the Google apps" or "the GApps", they don't just mean the individual apps like YouTube, etc, but more importantly, the proprietary Google framework (the most visible part of which being known as the Google Play Services to users of the store, or as Google Mobile Services to manufacturers) that those applications, as well as a very large number of third-party applications on Play, and the Play Store itself, use for much of their functionality.
This framework is only licensed by Google to manufacturers of certified devices.
Right now, ZTE is one of Google's certified partners, but presumably, this cannot continue under this ruling.
No :D I'm talking about the Play Services app beta version
here you can sign up for beta then update it
Download this and run. The first three numbers after the bracket will be your version number to find
will say update if it still needs to be updated, otherwise it should be good already
That's the play store link for GPS, head to the bottom and there'll be a link to join the beta.
For those who want in on the beta
Google Play Services was updated 5 days ago: [link]
If yours is updated, try to clean the data and cache.
Try sending the google play services update from the web store.
Oh wow found it and some of these reviews are great.

hope this would help
Try opening this on your phone
Are your Google Play services up-to-date?
I'm not sure. This is all handled by the play store. You could check if Google play services is up to date.
My team mate solved this by installing Google Play Services and re-adding the google account.
Here's a link to the Google Play services app on the Play Store. Click here.
You need to re apply the play services update. Uninstall google play services and reinstall from here: [link]
Can you uninstall it then install it from play store? [link]
I forgot about that part. Use the link here on your phone to open it in the Play Store and update from there.
You may update Google Play Services from this link in the Play Store: [link]
I...I give up. I'm not going to bother talking about this anymore. Maybe for something that has..." no such services", you can start with this non-existing Android "Services" app here.
I think you have a fundamental misunderstanding of how Android works at all.
Other than that, I'm just going to wish you a Happy Holidays and let someone else bother with this. I'm out. Google will deal with T-Mobile down the line.
Try clearing the cache of Google play services...
Second try to set back the play services and update them again.
i think you shouln't worry about that.
You can generate apk file directly from Play store.
just copy app/game url (Google Play Service: [link]) to search box here and submit. This site will generate Google Play apk for you (apk).
You must accept softwares installed from external sources (Settings -> Apps -> Unknown sources selected area) to install apk, but this won't do any harm to your Kindle.
>the possibilities for new features are huge without a single .apk update.
GPS 7.0 was released in march and as of today they're on 7.3 that's a lot of updating for something you keep saying doesn't need to be updated to add new features.
From where I'm sitting as a Dev google can update their backend with new features as much as they want, but as a user you're not going to see that on the phone unless you A) visit a website to serve you the content, or B)I update my apk to be able to use that new content.
