Samsung and the CPSC officially recall the Galaxy Note7 in the US after 92 reports of battery issues

Samsung and the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) have just announced an official recall of the Galaxy Note7 in the US. This news comes after statements last week that Samsung and the CPSC are working together to issue a formal recall and reports that Samsung is limiting the batteries of Note7s in Korea to 60% via an OTA update. According to the CPSC, 92 reports of batteries overheating in the US have been received. This is out of an estimated one million units sold.

YouTube Red, Google's premium video service, can now be subscribed to by our friends in Mexico. Prior to today, YouTube Red was only available in Australia, New Zealand, and obviously the US. With the addition of Mexico, Red is now purchasable in a whopping four countries.

Google Play Music Gifts Come To Brazil, Mexico, And Switzerland

Of all the countries that get to enjoy Google Play Music access, only a select few have support for Play Music gifts. That means that there's a limited number of users who can send each other the gift of music, but that number is getting a bit larger now: Brazil, Mexico, and Switzerland have been added to the list of countries with access to Music gifts.

They join Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States in letting users purchase music subscriptions for their friends, family members, or maybe distant acquaintances (we won't judge). Prices are the same for a gifted subscription as a personally purchased one, but at least you can now get others hooked on the service even if they were reticent to try it out in the first place.

Google Expands Android Auto Support To Mexico, Fixes A Couple Of Typos In The Process

Ever wonder how Android Police always knows right away when Google makes a new country available for any of its services? It's simple! We pick whichever intern has been annoying us this week, chain sit him down in front of a computer, and make him reload Google Support pages like this one once every thirty seconds. When he sees a change, no matter how tiny, he bangs a pot with a wooden spoon, thus alerting one of our diligent writers to take a look at the page. If something of substance has changed, like a new country being added to Google's list of officially supported Android Auto countries, we write it up.

Amazon Shopping App Adds Gift Card Scanning, Voice Commands, And Amazon.mx Support In The Latest Update

Readers, we have a confession to make. This update to the Amazon shopping app actually came out on June 30th, over two weeks ago. Sorry about that. We spotted it, both on the Play Store and on APK Mirror, but didn't notice anything particularly new about it because Amazon neglected to upload a change log. They've done so today, and the new version (5.6.2.100 on my Nexus 6) actually adds some important new features to the app.

First of all, you can now use the official Amazon shopping app in Mexico thanks to the Amazon.mx expansion announced last month. If you've received an Amazon gift card (paradoxically available at many retailers which Amazon actively competes with), you can now scan it with your smartphone's camera to add the credit instead of laboriously punching in numbers.

T-Mobile's Latest Uncarrier Promotion Is 'Mobile without Borders' - T-Mo Phones Now Work The Same In Canada And Mexico At No Extra Charge

John Legere, the mobile CEO who can't get Deutsche Telekom to love T-Mobile no matter how many new customers they sign up, is back with another jab at his competitors. T-Mobile already features some pretty extraordinary free international roaming extras, but now it's going whole hog on the two countries that Americans visit the most: Canada and Mexico. Starting next week if you cross the border to the north or south, your T-Mobile phone will work the same as it does in the States. Take it away, John:

Notice that nowhere in the video or in T-Mobile's promotional site is the word "roaming" used, and that's by design - this isn't roaming.

Amazon Announces Retail Expansion Into Mexico, Shopping Now Available South Of The Border Via The Amazon App

It's honestly kind of surprising that a company as huge and far-reaching as Amazon hasn't made a more serious effort to sell things in Mexico yet. After all, there are over a hundred million people in the country - surely a few of them want to buy some books and phones and such, and Amazon already sells to much smaller markets in Europe. The company announced today that it's expanding its online retail services to Mexico, including both conventional sales and its Marketplace program.

That will make the Amazon Kindle e-readers available in Mexico, but oddly there's no mention of the Kindle Fire, Fire TV, or Fire Phone lines (you never know, someone down there might actually want one).

AT&T To Provide GoPhone Plans With More Data, Give $60 Plan Unlimited Calling To Mexico Starting February 20th

AT&T is making a bold move for the Mexico market, buying the country's third and fifth largest carriers earlier this year. With these acquisitions, the carrier enhanced its World Connect Value plans with unlimited calling to Mexico. Now it will soon bring the capability to its $60 GoPhone plan.

AT&T is bumping its $45 GoPhone offering up from 1GB to 1.5GB a month and the larger $60 plan from 2.5GB to 4GB. Only the latter will support unlimited calling to Mexico, but the former does still come with unlimited texting to our southern neighbor. Changes will take effect on February 20th.
