My android phone has the following specifications :

OS Version Jelly Bean MR1 4.2.2 Architecture armeabi-v7a Software Density 191dpi

I need to update Google Play services manually since I am unable to get an auto update.Some apps which need an updated version of Play Services to function, have completely locked me out. I understand I will be requiring Play Services with code 030, but there are so many versions available in the web, that I am getting confused. I am a beginner in this field.

Could someone kindly tell me what is the latest play services version do I need, if possible with a link to the download apk.


The easiest way is to go to the Google Play services page from the PC using your Google account (the account used on your phone). Then launch the installation for the page. The correct version for your device will be detected and installed.

If you can't do that, then this version (18.3.82) from Apkpure should be compatible with your device.

  • Thank you for choosing to respond to my query. Unfortunately, this apk did not work on my phone. After installation, the play services keep crashing repeatedly giving error message "Unfortunately google play services has stopped" When I click OK he google settings page opens. Does the service needs a change in configuration to work properly? I tried clearing cache and data of play store, play services and service framework and restarted the device. That didn't help.

  • Then try one of the version found on this page. Only chose the second on the list (the first is on the answer). But I have to note that you asked for the latest version; it is/was provided on the link. Aug 8 '19 at 8:55
