    Never mine guys, it's supposed to be there now. It's a Google services update. Read it in my android news right after. Sorry for the post.

    Its actually pretty useful feature. Because some people don't know what's going on behind the skin. This new app gathered all Google settings in one place.

    The article Sylon linked to does say that it's been pushed through outside of Play and is not part of the Google+ update .. though it is related. Somehow. Kinda lost interest half way through reading as I don't use Google+ :)

    I read the newest articles on androidcentral.com and Androidcommunity.com, that's the news I read and it was one of the stories. And it's not a G+ update guys. It deals with the Google play services app.
