The microG services replace Google Play services on your iodé smartphone. They allow you, among other services, to choose Google’s alternative geolocation modules. 2 modules are coupled by default: ‘Déjà vu’ & ‘Mozilla Location Service’.
‘Google Cloud Messaging’ (GCM) is a push notifications provider; it allows you to receive notifications on your iodé smartphone and a lot of android apps rely on it. We have activated the GCM provider by default, but you can deactivate it from the microG settings panel.
With iodéOS, you can also uninstall any preinstalled apps such as microG directly from the setup wizard or any time later.
