Google has announced a new release of Google Play services, version 7.3, bringing with it changes to Android Wear, Google Fit and location services, allowing developers to bring you better apps.

Highlights of Google Services 7.3 include:

  • Ability to connect multiple Android Wear devices to one mobile device
  • Changes to the Google Fit history API for better daily totals
  • More granulated dietary tracking in Google Fit
