Google combines Android Pay and Google Wallet for Google Pay

Google combines Android Pay and Google Wallet for Google Pay

Cyber security researchers explained that the new Android will focus on apps' User IDs, which each app creates when it is installed. If you live in the USA or the United Kingdom, you'll be able to use it to send and request money within the next few months.

According to TechCrunch, the team at Google "wanted to make it extremely easy" for people to use Google Pay "to pay for goods online and in the real world". In addition, the home screen shows you all of your recent purchases and you can still add all of your loyalty cards to the app. As of now users in U.S. or the United Kingdom, would be able to use the app to send and request money within the next few months.

Mr Chen Way Siew, Google's payments partnerships lead for South Asia-Pacific, told Channel NewsAsia in an email that customers will be able to use Google Pay wherever Android Pay, its predecessor, is accepted. You can also pay transit fare with Google Pay in certain cities, and you can choose Google Pay at checkout rather than filling out payment forms.

APKs are apps or updates that are not downloadable through the Google Play Store.

The incoming version of the Android OS, Android P, will reportedly hunt down and shut down apps that secretly tap your phone's mic or camera.

Microsoft is turning off push notifications for Windows Phone 7.5 and 8.0
Means, the notification services will continue to function for Windows Phone 8.1, as well as newer phones running Windows 10 Mobile.

XDA Developers uncovered two upcoming features of Android P that are sure to delight privacy advocates: Apps that are inactive in the background will be unable to use the microphone or camera. In terms of functionality, there isn't all that much here that's new. Instead, Google Wallet has changed and been rebranded into Google Pay Send.

There must be a flaw or a problem with the Play Store and other applications from Google as we can't think of anything else that can explain it.

The major aim of Android P is reportedly "improving the look of the software" to better appeal to existing iPhone users in hopes that they will make the switch over to platform of Google.
