Update the Google Play Services version on Android 7.1 emulators

Currently, the Android 7.1 emulators are supporting version 11.7 of Google Play Services. We would like for it to be upgraded to the latest 12.2.21 (https://www.androidapksfree.com/devapk/google-inc/google-play-services/)

    Just as a note. Google Play Services are independent of the Android OS version, so this request is not to upgrade Google Play Services ONLY for 7.1 emulators. Instead this should be to upgrade for all available emulators.

    Everyone, I am happy to announce that Google Play Services has been updated to version 12.5.21 on Android 7.1 emulators. We will update Google Play Services on the remaining Android versions shortly.




    Thank you,

    It would be great if the play services in all the emulators could get another update to version 15. There was a major update in April this year from 12.x to 15.x.:
    https://developers.google.com/android/guides/releases

    Our app always displays a popup that it needs up-to-date play services to work correctly. That is an obstacle in our appium tests.

    All the best,
    Hajo
