Are you an Android user? You may have noticed a new green Google app that might have quietly popped up on your phone. Accompanying Google’s roll out of Google+ sign-in support for both apps and the web, the company has pushed out a silent update to the Google Play Services app. Nothing new here, the service regularly updates itself to keep things up to date, but doesn’t usually install a new app.
No need to worry though as the Google Settings app is meant to be there, it provides shortcuts to other apps on the phone like Google+, Maps, Location, and Search. These settings were accessible from the apps themselves so it’s a bit puzzling why it needed a new app. An app that Googled pushed without explanation either.
