Manage Google Services settings on your phone

Back in 2013 or thereabout, Google added the Google Settings app to Android. It didn’t have or do much initially, but over the years they've added a bunch of useful functions and features. Plus, you can tailor the Google Services settings to match your preferences, especially for the privacy-conscious. Check it out, it’s worth a look.

Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider, software version, and phone model.
