Manage Google Setting on Galaxy S8 & S8+

Can you remember a time when the answer to nearly every question wasn't "Google it?" Neither can we. You’ll always have all the answers with Google on your S8 and S8+. Plus, you can tailor your phone’s Google settings to your preferences.

The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
