Google Play Services 5.0 is live, check out the new additions
Android wearable services
Dynamic security provider
Google Play game services
Saved games lets you store a player's game progress to the cloud for use across many screen, using a new saved game snapshot API. Along with game progress, you can store a cover image, description and time-played. Players never play level 1 again when they have their progress stored with Google, and they can see where they left off when you attach a cover image and description. Adding cover images and descriptions provides additional context on the player’s progress and helps drive re-engagement through the Play Games app.
App Indexing API
Users can also now use their Google Wallet Balance to pay for Instant Buy transactions by providing split tender support. With split tender, if your Wallet Balance is not sufficient, the payment is split between your Wallet Balance and a credit/debit card in your Google Wallet.

GREAT!!! This is something that Non-Google android (such as NokiaX, ?XiaoMi?, Amazon/bb) will miss big time. This is why you should buy REAL android if you want android apps.
*I'm not sure if we can install google play on XiaoMi device

Google Play Services and other Google apps are installed by default on Xiaomi devices. At least here in Singapore.

Hey there. I think the play store and the the "services" that runs it are two different things as I was wondering why My Moto G LTE hadn't changed too. I actually reset my phone and it updated it said google play services to version 5.0. But then when I still go back in the setting and look at the build number of the store, It still says Build version 4.8.20. The services app when it updates also just dissapears! So im not sure there is way to really check. Yours is probably already updated.. If you really know how to look at all the in depth codes (complicated stuff) like develpers use I think you can see. Here is the only place I actually found the app as well -https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.gms&hl=en It's weird it doesn't show if you search for it as an app on your phone. I found it using laptop.
