Google today announced Play Services 7.5, an update to the underlying set of code most Android devices rely on for accessing the Play Store and various features within applications. Play Services 7.5 is a big step forward and adds a broad range of new functionalities and associated APIs for developers. The new Smart Lock for passwords, for example, can retrieve saved credentials as part of an app's login process, as well as save new credentials for later use on other Android devices and in any Chrome browser. Play Services updates Google Cloud Messaging with support for iOS devices for cross-platform messaging. Google Cast gains a Remote Display API for Android and iOS, which will let developers build a tailored second screen experience. Google Cast also gains new APIs for controlling autoplay functions, queuing, and gaming. Android Wear has a new Maps API that will let developers add map data to their own Wear apps. The SDK for Play Service 7.5 is available to developers now. Google didn't say when Play Services 7.5 will reach end-user devices.
