Well after the Google Play Store 5 update, for literally, I thought that is it for the Updates from Google, now there will be at least a week or Two of rest, then we will be able to see another update. However, Google is not stopping as we get to see yet another update of Google Play Services, just after a week. Google Play Services 6.1.71 is now available, and your devices will receive the update sooner or later. There is some reasonable difference to see there, especially the Settings Icon, which has been changed dramatically.
Since the update is quite new, we can except some reasonable time to reach it to everyone.
