It appears I'm not the only one seeing this, but I can't see any reports here so I thought I'd mention it.

When I turned my phone on this morning I got a message about a crash - I think in Google Play Services, and I suspect it was related to an update because update notifications for several other apps followed in quick sucession. For now I've done a factory reset and that seems to have cured it. Hopefully, if it's widespread, Google will be able to solve the problem fast.
what i like to personally do, is go into Settings, Data Usage, and scroll down past the data graph.. there it will tell you what app is using how much data, but select an app, and scroll all the way to the bottom, there you will see an option to Restriction Background Data.. I restricted all the Google ones, even Play. I've always done this with any device I've owned.

I hope this helps you in some way.
