Google Settings app appears in Android app drawer, lets you control general Google account settings


Google Settings app

Most of you may have already spotted this new icon in your Android device, rest assured as it’s not malware at all. In fact it appears to be a Google App that provides settings shortcuts to Google settings.

The App is a hub, the user can view and select which Apps are using the Google Sign-In process as well as Google+ settings, Location Access for maps and latitude. That little App comes via an update to Google Play services and you won’t find it listed in Play Store since it’s an Android system update.

Those settings were previously buried in settings but Google has made it easier for us to tinker with those options now.
