Google Photos face grouping is finally rolling out across Europe

One of Google Photos' neatest (or creepiest, depending on who you ask) tricks is its ability to recognize the same face across different angles, lighting conditions, and even ages, and let you assign it a searchable name. The feature was available in the US from the get-go, but that wasn't the case everywhere. Now, face grouping is rolling out across Europe, according to Engadget.

Samsung and Xiaomi capitalize on Huawei's woes to increase smartphone market share in Europe

The European smartphone market is incredibly fast-moving — brand loyalty isn't high, especially with users of lower-end devices. When you compare this year's second financial quarter with the same period from last year, you can see how quickly things change. Samsung and Xiaomi are clear winners in Q2 2019 with 20% and 48% annual growth respectively, while Apple, Huawei, and HMD Global (Nokia) market shares shrank by at least 16%.

Google's ongoing European saga just saw a new development. After the record $5 billion antitrust fine issued by the European Commission last year, the company had to implement new screens to ask users if they wanted additional browsers and search engines on their devices, and now it's taking that one step further by making the search engine choice a default. However, as would any for-profit company do, it's using this as an opportunity to charge search providers that want to be featured.

Google Pay adds support for 25 more banks across Europe, Asia, and New Zealand

I'm a huge fan of mobile payments, mostly because it's convenient and  I don't have to take my wallet with me to run small errands. Seeing Google Pay expand to more countries is always pleasant, especially when the services added include prepaid cards in addition to traditional banks. The list of supported services has further grown since our last post, as Google Pay now supports 25 more services in 14 countries in Europe, Asia, and Australia.

LG starts international Android 9 Pie rollout for V30

Over the past few years, LG has slipped to one of the worst phone manufacturers when it comes to software updates. It already took nearly a year for Android 9 Pie to arrive on the US variants of the LG G7, and the company's older phones are waiting even longer. Android Pie is now rolling out to the 2017 V30, but the update hasn't arrived in America quite yet.

The OnePlus 7 is available to buy today in the UK, Europe, and Asia

For every major market except the United States, a new OnePlus phone is available for purchase today. The OnePlus 7 is very much an updated 6T (a 6Tt, if you will), but I found the upgrades to be worthwhile when I tested the phone for my review, especially considering the price is the same.
