Google play services handles access to the play store, api updates used by developers and Google, communication between various apps and Google maps, YouTube, search, Gmail, etc,and can add feature updates without updating Android. You can clear the cache by going to...

Settings--Application Manager--Select Google play services (under "all" or "dowmloaded" ---Manage space..
You can also get there through "Storage"
btw my phone shows 104 MB (~33MB for the app), so your usage is not out of the norm.

@mbryanr - will clearing the cache in the phone's storage also clear the cache build-up on the 360? I asked about this in another forum, and have yet to receive a reply.

Only that associated with play services, or any of the Google Apps/others that use it. There are other apps that use up storage, stored in the cache.. Some can be deleted without any major issues, most is so small that having what ever data/downloads that is stored, ie game progression, is worth it.

It does. You can always try disabling, and see what happens. I saw on another thread that YouTube doesn't work, and you may not get notifications for updates.

Edit : just saw your available storage. Ouch.
I don't use youtube notifications anyway.
How do you have so many games? Games for the watch?

Google play services can't open

Google play services can't manage space because internal storage is running out. What is the best remedy to fix that?
