In June, Google Play system updates for Android delivered a slew of new security fixes to our phones and tablets.
Many of the core features that we all love and enjoy about Android are powered by Google Play Services, and Google has recently used the Play Store and "Google Play system updates" to bring select features from newer versions of Android to older phones.
Google outlines what new features and enhancements to expect from the most recent updates to what it refers to as the "Google System" once a month, and the page is constantly updated with new additions.
The quickest way to see if Google Play Services on a user's phone needs to be updated is to follow a direct link to the app's Play Store listing and update from there, if available. To update the Play Store, tap the user’s avatar in the corner, then "Settings." Under the "About" section, they'll see an option to "Update Play Store."
Google Play system updates, meanwhile, can be found in the Settings app, under About phone > Android version > Google Play system update.
Since June is still in its early stages, the release notes for this month's Google System updates are currently brief and generic, focusing on security concerns. All of the current notes are identical to what we've seen in recent months, but Google will undoubtedly reveal what's in store over time.
To reap the full benefits, the page recommends installing the June Google Play system update, version 30.3 or newer of the Play Store, and version 22.21 of Google Play Services.
