Google Play Services

Google Play Services 7.3 now out, connect several wearables to one phone

The genius team of Android developers over at Google has just announced the rollout of Google Play services 7.3. This means new tools are ready to be explored and new APIs to be tested. The new version includes the latest Android Wear APIs, better support for optional APIs, improvements on retrieving location and activities of a user, and Google Fit getting more data. Developers of Android apps will greatly benefit from the new APIs and enhancements on Google Play Services but this also means more benefits for the end users--you and me.

Google Play Services updated with Trusted Voice

We didn't miss the Google Play Services 7.0 update but we're only noticing some new stuff in there. One of which is Trusted Voice that is actually a new smart lock entry feature. It allows voice control or voice command to unlock any Android device. It's a nice update but the full setting required wasn't easily accessible and visible in the app during the initial release.
