Google Nest Hub Max officially arrives September 9 in the US, UK, and Australia

Google took the wraps off of the Nest Hub Max back in May, but it's been mostly radio silence on the large smart display since then. Today the company revealed via a support page that the Nest Hub Max would be going up for sale on September 9 in the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia, meaning that we still have a 1.5-month wait.

Samsung sued for misleading water-resistance ads in Australia

Samsung began calling its flagship Galaxy phones "water-proof" or "water-resistant" with the Galaxy S7 series, which received an IP68 rating, meaning it should be okay to submerge it into up to five feet deep water for a maximum of 30 minutes. That hasn't stopped the company from aggressively marketing its phones as great devices to use at the pool or on the beach ever since, without actually covering any water damage under warranty. The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) disapproves of these "misleading advertisements" and is taking the Korean company to court over them.

[Update: Now available for all users] Commuters in Melbourne can now add their Myki card to Google Pay

Google Pay is aiming at becoming a true virtual wallet by gathering payment and loyalty cards in a single application. Since last year, commuters in Las Vegas, Portland, and the West Midlands have also been able to save their transit tickets in their phones, allowing them to leave their wallets at home. Melburnians, and more generally Victorians, can also use their handsets as their transportation pass now, as Google Pay just added support for Myki, the region's transit card — not the password manager we reviewed.

Google Pay adds support for more banks in Canada, UK, Italy, Spain, Ukraine, Poland, Australia, Brazil, and Russia

Here in the US, Google Pay is widely supported, and for that we're grateful. In international markets, support isn't always as easily found, but the list of partner banks is ever expanding. Over the past month, we've noticed that Google Pay has added support for a number of new banks for a handful of countries around the world, opening the door for even more consumers to enjoy the ease of using the payment platform to make in-store, in-app and online purchases.

Google Pay brings new bank options to users in Australia, Italy, Spain, Norway, Denmark, Finland, and Sweden

Google Pay users in the States have a pretty nice thing going for them, with the service supported by umpteen million financial institutions (give or take a million). But as we travel abroad, the situation's much more hit-and-miss. It's far from a sure thing that Google Pay is available in a country at all, and even where it is, the selection of partner banks can be pretty sparse. So today we're happy to share with you some progress towards remedying that situation, as new banks come online for Google Pay around the globe.
