Samsung Galaxy S8 And Galaxy S8+ Plus: Disable Google Play Services

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ Plus should run incredibly smoothly, but in some cases it may start to run slow. The Android operating system can run smoothly, but it cannot run an endless number of processes and apps at once. If your Galaxy S8 and S8+ Plus is running too many apps at once, the RAM will be used up and apps will have to close down in the background. If apps are performing tasks in the background, this can also affect the performance of your Galaxy S8 and S8+ Plus because the processor in the smartphone can only handle a certain number of processes at once before it starts to slow down.

If you’re noticing that your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus is starting to slow down, then the best thing to do is to reduce the amount of processes and apps that are running in the background. This will free up some RAM and put less strain on the CPU so that it can perform better in the apps you are using at the time. If you reduce background apps, the reduction in processes will help to save battery life as well.

With this guide, we’ll show you how to disable Google Play services that aren’t needed. By doing this, you’ll be able to save battery life, reduce CPU performance and free up RAM so that you can have more apps open at once. Some Google Play services are important, but a lot of them can be disabled for maximum performance.


Disable Google Play Services on Android

Let’s start by taking a look at which Google Play services aren’t necessary for your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus to operate smoothly. After that, we can take a look at how to disable these individual services on your device. Some unnecessary Google Play services include Wake up, Keep Awake, Ads services, Wearable services and Auto Start Services. Alongside these, it’s also possible to disable the Google now “wake up calls” so that Google Now doesn’t constantly listen out for your voice. This can save battery and cut down on background processes..

If you need your location services for navigation, GPS, or Google Maps, you should keep it turned on. However, if you do not use your GPS, you could switch it off as well. You could also turn off a number of other features, but it’s important to know that doing so could limit your device functionality. For example, you could disable Okay Google but this will shut off traffic updates.
