Google Play Services 3.2

We've just finished rolling out the latest relse of Google Play services to devices around the world. It offers better performance and grter power savings, as well as enhancements to the Loion Based Services, maps, InstantBuy, Google+, and Photo Sphere.

To simplify your testing, we've also relsed an updated Google APIs emulator that includes Google Play Services 3.2. You can download the through the Android SDK Manager.

Maps and Loion Based Services

Google Play Services 3.2 includes several enhancements to the Loion Based Services. The Fused Loion Provider now supports the selection of a low-power mode option when requesting loion updates, and the ability to inject mock loions — allowing you to more efficiently test your apps in a variety of simulated conditions.

The geofencing APIs have been updated to support hardware-based GPS geofencing on devices that have supporting hardware, such as the 4. Hardware geofences consume significantly less battery, and best of all your app will automatically take advantage of this fture on supported hardware without you having to make any changes.

A new Snapshot fture in the maps API lets you capture a bitmap of the current map in order to improve performance when an interactive map isn't necessary. We’ve also added a listener to the My Loion button.

Google+, Photo Sphere, InstantBuy, and Analytics

If you’ve used Google+ sign-in you can take advantage of the new simplified sharing control that can be embedded directly within your app, simplifying the process of sharing content directly to Google+. We’ve also taken the opportunity to add some butter to the Google+ sign-in animation.

The Photo Sphere viewer has also been extended to include a compass mode that allows users to explore Photo Spheres by moving their .

The InstantBuy implementation has been improved to incrse efficiency, with improved latency, a clner UI with contextual text and assets for the holo light theme, and support for passing through loyalty and offers information.
