    Hi all, anyone knows what Google Play services does? I realised it's taking up quite a bit of background data.
    And occasionally it drains loads of battery

    The question is what doesn't it do? It's integral to lots of Google's various services. Read more about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_Play_Services

    The battery drain that can happen is more likely related to some app that is utilizing Play Services, rather than Play Services itself. It can be difficult to pinpoint the app, though, unless you have some suspicions to begin with.
