The latest version of Google Play Services has been released, bringing it to version 6.1.11, and although it includes features users probably won’t notice directly, it has some pretty nice under-the-hood enhancements.
There are a few small UI tweaks, along with the usual performance enhancements, but most notable is the inclusion of an updated preview for Google Fit to allow developers to test their fitness apps on “any Android device”.
The update also includes some enhancements to the Drive Android API, and Google says further changes are coming soon.
