Launch Google Settings
2.2 and up
September 21, 2016
** You do not need this app unless you are using a China phone, without 'Google Settings' menu. Please kindly refer to the screenshots. **
** No root required. **
** This app does not help you to install Google Apps, you will need to install it yourself, the simplest way is to use Open GApps update file with third-party recovery. You may find Open GApps @ https://www.google.com/search?q=open+gapps. **
** Technically said, this app only start an intent like,
Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_MAIN).
So do not expect this app to do more than this. **
Usually Google components are entirely removed from China phones, though you can install Open GApps, the alternative OS may have restriction, so you have no 'Google Settings' choice in settings.
So this app solves this issue, it simply trigger GMS to start its settings.
The first screenshot shows there is no 'Google Settings' option in settings.
The second screenshot shows this app in the start menu.
The third screenshot shows this app triggered Google Settings.
This is an open source project, you can find the source code @ https://github.com/hzj-jie/android-google-settings/
This app does not require any permission.
Considering this APK is only 5 kilo bytes, I do not want an icon to enlarge it, so this app has no icon. The high resolution icon here in Google Play store is 12.2K.
** All the screenshots are coming from my phone. If you have copy-right to any of them, please kindly let me know. I will remove it. **
