There are many ways to buy content on the Play Store: debit/credit cards, carrier billing, Paypal, and gift cards. The latter is one of the least complicated options since all you have to do is buy a card from the store, enter it into your account, and you're good to go. There's no need to worry about bank cards, carrier fees, or a Paypal connection. You can even gift these cards to friends and family members to encourage them to buy content.
Now gift cards are coming to Indonesia — one of the most populated countries in the world. They'll be available in 150000, 300000, and 500000 Indonesian Rupiah values (approx $11.37, $22.76, and $37.93, respectively) and will be sold at Indomaret stores. Read More
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. Read More
For a while, desktop Google Drive's selective sync functionality has been rather, well, selective. You could only select top-level folders. This meant you could select all of your music, or all of your photos, but not a specific set of albums.
Now that's changing. Read More
Google released the second Android N developer preview update yesterday, and it came with a new folder icon. Instead of the stack, you have a clipped array of the top four app icons in a circle. Here we are a day later and the new Nova Launcher v4.3 beta already offers those folder icons as an option. Read More
Play Music will soon let you listen to podcasts. No, I'm not trolling you. I know we ran a headline that said this way back in October. But we were just repeating Google's words. This time, we have a date: April 18th. Read More
One of the coolest features in the first two Android N previews was the fast app switching feature of the overview button. It was essentially like alt-tab on Windows, and it made it a breeze to cycle through recent apps. In the new developer preview, Google appears to have drastically scaled back this feature. You can only toggle between two apps now. Read More
Chinese smartphone maker Meizu has announced its latest flagship phone, the Meizu Pro 6. This is a follow-up to the Meizu Pro 5, which dropped the MX branding of earlier models. It comes less than a year after that device, and in some cases, it's not quite an upgrade. Read More
You might vaguely recall an exclusive post on AP a few years back about "Google Workshop." It was to be an online tool for creating custom cases for the Nexus 5 and Nexus 7 (2013). Oh, those were the days. Well, it turns out Google Workshop is real, but they're called Live Cases now. You can pick up your very own custom Live Case for the Nexus 6, Nexus 5X, or Nexus 6P with a photo or stylized Maps screenshot for $35.
