App Notes:

To figure out the right version of Google Play services for your Android device, download Play Services info or go to Settings -> Apps -> Google Play services, and look at the last 3 numbers in the parentheses. You'll see something like -XYZ where:

* X defines Android version:

  • 0 for Android <5.0
  • 2 for Android 5.0 and 5.1 starting with Play Services v8
  • 4 for Android 5.0 and 5.1 before Play Services v8, Android >= 6.0 after
  • 5 for Android Wear
  • 7 for Android 5.0
  • 8 for Android TV

* Y defines CPU architecture:

  • 1 for armeabi
  • 3 for armeabi-v7a
  • 4 for arm64-v8a
  • 7 for x86
  • 8 for x86_64

* Z defines DPI:

  • 0 for universal
  • 2 for 160
  • 4 for 240
  • 6 for 320
  • 8 for 480

Notes:

  • It seems that -7YZ builds became -4YZ with Google Play services v6.5. If you were on -7YZ before, you should now install -4YZ.
  • It seems that -4YZ builds got split into -2YZ for Lollipop and -4YZ for Marshmallow with Google Play services v8. If you were on -4YZ before, you should now install -2YZ in Lollipop and -4YZ in Marshmallow.
  • Looks like -8YZ builds are for Android TV.

Examples:

  • -014 for Android <5.0 armeabi CPU 240 DPI device
  • -438 for Android 6.0+ armeabi-v7a CPU 480 DPI device
  • -876 for Android TV x86 CPU 320 DPI device
