Google Home app Settings menu getting organization overhaul

The new menu isn't perfect, but it's a huge improvement

The latest Google Home update helps make the Settings menu easier to understand at a glance.

There isn’t too much to say, but Google is adding more icons to the Settings menu that help make each section more defined. There are also a few more line breaks to help define the categories.
