    I have the BBKEY2LE (UK) which I use mainly for business email.

    Since buying this I have received various Google Play notifications telling me that I need to update Google Drive and other Google related Apps.

    I do not use any of these and wonder whether it is safe to disable/stop the Google services I do not use.

    Please forgive the ignorance, but what is the diffrence between "disable" and "stop" a service?
    Are there any Google Apps that I need to keep running and up to date to ensure that the BBKEY2LE keeps running normally? If so, which are these and which ones can I safely disable/stop?

    Disable means you have shut it off, it won't run at all.

    Stop or Force Stop.... kills it for awhile. A reboot can turn it back on, or another service calling for it might do the same.


    Do a search for disabling apps on an android device.... there are lots of list out there that explain some of these and what the results might be.

    It was started back when the OP had a KeyOne but it has been kept going with suggestions and updates from many others. I found it invaluable recently when setting up my Key² LE without using a Google account.
