So it seems that Google got too excited in installing their new app called Google Settings on Android devices that they missed out on informing the users about it even in the form of a simple notification.
So what exactly does this app do? Not a whole lot actually. It’s basically just a portal to your Google+ account and the other accounts/apps that are connected to it via Google+ sign-in. Google Settings also provides quick access to your Location preferences for Maps and Latitude, Search and Ads.
Google Settings is part of the search giant’s push to increase the awareness on their recently announced service coined Google+ Sign-in which, in essence, is similar to what Facebook has done. It allows users to sign in to third-party apps and services using their Google+ credentials, lessening the stress of remembering multiple passwords in the process.
People who are on Google+ amay find this app a bit useful, but for those who are not, it’s nothing but an app with green icon that will likely be left in the dark corner of their app drawer or worse uninstalled.
