Lost in Train-slation: Honor says it lost prototype phone in Germany, offers reward for safe return

We could start off this story by bagging the poor Apple technician that left a pre-production iPhone 4 at a bar and rehashing the Gizmodo saga from 2010. But the truth is that we've all lost things while we're in the middle of doing something else like say, sitting on a train. One poor Honor employee in Germany might find faint solace in that assurance as the company has turned to the public for help in finding a prototype smartphone.

Google Pay expands to more banks in France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Russia, and Slovakia

Although not at the same rate as its US bank and credit union support, the mobile payment service keeps steadily adding more institutions and card options for its users around the world. So if you live somewhere where Pay has already launched but your bank wasn't supported before, take a look at the new additions and see if it now is.

YouTube Music comes to Google Home in many more countries (Europe, Japan, Canada)

As the story goes, Google isn't particularly good at making its own services and apps work together. Take YouTube Music for example. It took months for the streaming service to be available on Android Auto and as an alarm provider in the Clock app, and it still isn't integrated in Google Maps the way Spotify and Play Music are. But things are ever-so-slowly improving. You can (now) pick YouTube Music to be your music provider on Google Assistant and Home speakers in many, many more countries.

Google Pay international expansion continues in UAE, Germany, Australia, and Taiwan

So many times we hear readers complain about Google's focus being way too US-centered. Sure, the company started here and has a significant user base, but that doesn't make it any less frustrating when new products and services debut, only to be US exclusives. While that favoritism isn't going to vanish any time soon, little by little we see Google expand its offerings in nations abroad, and today we're checking in with the latest developments in the international world of Google Pay.

3rd gen Chromecast launches in Germany and India, multi-room audio said to be coming to older models

The third-generation Chromecast was announced along with the Pixel 3, though it was introduced without much fanfare: a simple blog post was enough and there was no mention of it during the press conference. That makes sense because it doesn't differ a lot from the second-gen Chromecast, beside offering multi-room audio. Twelve countries were said to be having it at first, but two more just joined in: Germany and India.

An integration with PayPal was also announced last year, giving users even greater options, but it's only been available in the US.

Google Pay on Wear OS works in Germany

As we've learned over the past few years, having a Google service available in your country isn't enough to use it on all your devices. Google Pay, for example, is supported for in-store payments in twenty countries, but only if you're using your phone to make the transaction. If you have a Wear OS smartwatch, however, the Google Pay app won't show up on the watch unless you're in a few countries. At first, the feature came to the US and UK, then it spread to Spain, Canada, and Australia, followed by Poland and Russia. The latest country to join the ranks is Germany.

Google Assistant routines are rolling out in more languages in Australia, Canada, Germany, India, and the UK

Google Assistant's routines rolled out in March, then gained customization and scheduling a few months later, but in the time since, routines have always been an English (US) feature. If your Google Home or Assistant on your phone was set to any other language, or any other variant of English, you had to make do with the old My Day feature for a morning routine and not much more. In the past day, however, routines have started popping up left and right for users in several countries.

Google Home Max available in UK, France, and Germany starting today

This might come as a surprise to some of you, but Google's Home products aren't available in very many countries. In fact, availability is actually fairly restricted, especially on the Home Max. Until May, the biggest Home speaker was only available in the US, though Canada and Australia have since joined the list. Now, the Home Max is arriving in the UK, France, and Germany.
