New Google Services App Included With Launch of Play Services 3.0

Google Settings

With the introduction of Google Play Services v3.0 this morning, we have a new app to help you control all of your account settings. Within the popup window that appears after launch of Google Settings, you can choose the settings for Google+, Maps, Search settings, and even trigger Google AdMob Ads on and off. 

This app is filed under “Google Play services” in your settings menu, so if it hasn’t appeared in your app drawer yet, a quick clearing of the data through your app settings menu should trigger it to refresh and appear.

Cheers Kyle!

    So they basically gave me an extra unneeded ap to take me to another apps settings menu???????????

    This version breaks when I move it to my system/app folder, so. Despite being smaller it’s occupying space that my apps could be using. (N) Not kool Google!

    Does this have anything to do with why my Play Store icon is broken? The app still works, the icon is just now a little bugdroid with a box on his chest and the title under the icon says “com.android.vending.AssetBro…”. Anyone else having this issue?

      just move that one off the homescreen and drag and drop one out of your app drawer back onto the homescreen. fixed.

        The one in the app drawer is like that too. I’ve tried clearing the data on the Play Store, Play Services framework and Nova Launcher. I’m guessing its an issue with Nova not recognizing the new Play Store package or something.

  • This is pretty sweet..

  • Does this come with a DashClock widget?

      Make sure after you clear play services data, to reboot your device. Should show up.

    Aside from the first two options, the rest are already in the settings menu. Does this mean just more options for options?

    • Simon Belmont

      It seems so. It looks like it’s just a new Google app with another link to already existing settings in other Google apps.


  • thats creepy and awesome

    • Ryuuie

      How is this creepy? o.O They put an app in your app drawer.

      Google has the ability to brick our phones if they want to (as does Apple and Microsoft). I’m honestly unsure of why this is creepy to people. :/ There are people on Google Play Services’ Play Store page claiming they’re creeped out too.

      What gives?

      • Eric Richardson

        It’s because, in general, people are idiots.

        Sad but true.

      • Its creepy cause I have it and i dont even own a phone D:
