  • Google has started pushing a silent update to the Google Play Services app, in order to support the new Google+ sign in initiative. That update also brings to Android devices a new application dubbed Google Settings.


    The app has started adding itself to various Android devices without warning. The app doesn’t do much, except provide shortcuts to settings pages of Google apps like Maps, Google+ and Search. It also shows a list of apps you are connected to via the new Google+ Sign in System. In case you haven’t heard of this, it’s a simple login system for websites and mobile apps that brings together your social profile info.

    You won’t see this app in the Play Store, it just adds itself via a Google Play update. So, basically we’re dealing with a shortcut app, one that only takes more room on the screen. What’s next for Google+ integration? Merging your accounts into one?
