Android Pay Can Now Handle In-App Purchases, And Some Popular Services Have Already Jumped On Board

The words "in-app purchases" aren't generally what we want to see in a headline, but in this case, they're not out to rip you off. App developers can now use Android Pay to manage their in-app purchases.

This should cut down on the number of times Android Pay users have to enter their credit card details. If you're using Lyft to order a ride and already have your payment methods saved in Android Pay, the app will pull them up automatically. With this change, Android Pay speeds up the checkout process for the kinds of purchases people are already accustomed to making from their phones.

Google Spreadsheets Now Shows Functions In Your Preferred Language

Google Spreadsheets has been available in a few languages for a while, but one of the app's main features, functions, has always been displayed in English regardless of the rest of the menus. That's changing on both the web and app side of Spreadsheets as support for languages in functions rolls out. The setting will follow your preferred Google account language so your experience will be consistent across various Google services.

Existing users whose preferred language is other than English will get asked whether they want to switch functions to that or keep them in English. New users will automatically see functions in their preferred language.

Inbox By Gmail Makes Trip Bundles Shareable, Improves Photo Attachments [APK Download]

Trip bundles take all of the mail from a single trip and sort them together. Google also mines the contents of these messages to show you an agenda card that consolidates key information into a single place.

Now Google is introducing the option to share these trip bundles.

[Missed Steak] Allthecooks Rebrands As Cookpad, Dumps Allthethings Users Loved About The Original App

Whenever a service we use gets bought by another company, we're always filled with hope and anxiety over its fate. It could either be a case of growth and improvements or a slow dwindling descent into irrelevance. I'm afraid Allthecooks may start falling into the latter category if its new owners don't react swiftly to the criticism of their most loyal users.

Allthecooks has long been among the most beautiful and capable recipe and cookbook apps on Android. It got acquired by the Japanese-born Cookpad service toward the end of 2013 and since then, it got an interface redesign and a name change to Cookpad Recipes, but almost everything else remained the same up until a few days ago.

The Latest Version Of Google Play Music Adds Thumbs Up And Thumbs Down To The Notification Controls [APK Download]

Google Play's branded Music app has had Pandora-style thumbs up and thumbs down controls, applicable to your local and cloud music as well as streaming radio stations, for quite a while. But they're not all that easy to get to: aside from the "now playing" screen and the homescreen widget, the functionality isn't all that obvious. The latest update to the app puts those recommendation tools front and center, right on the notification and lockscreen controls.

We're actually looking at two Google Play Music updates here: version 6.2.2220U.2476962 and the slightly newer 6.2.2221U.2480853. Both of them are nearly identical with one notable exception.
