Watch Samsung's virtual Mobile World Congress event here

Watch Samsung's virtual Mobile World Congress event here

The company's Galaxy-branded smartwatches have eschewed Wear OS for years in favor of its own in-house Tizen operating system. Our first real glimpse at this hybridized Wear OS might just come later today when Samsung shows off its "vision for the future of smartwatches," and you can watch it right here.

Google Workspace users are finally getting invited to try out the new version of Google Pay

Google seems to be trying to make the new Google Pay do everything for everyone. As usual, its own Workspace users are a little behind the curve, despite literally paying Google to use its software.

Fortnite for Android now works on non-Samsung devices, but you may still need to wait [Download]

The sensation that is Fortnite landed on Android just two days ago, but it was set to be a Samsung exclusive for a "few days." That nebulously defined period is now over, and the application now runs on non-Samsung devices, but there is a catch: You still can't actually play it unless you got an invite.

Google Pay offering $10 Play credit to you and a friend per referral, capped at $100 in credit

Google Pay offering $10 Play credit to you and a friend per referral, capped at $100 in credit

It's been almost three months since Android Pay was replaced by Google Pay, but the new name still sounds so foreign. In an attempt to alleviate that and introduce more users, Google is running a promotion in which you and someone you refer both get $10 in Play credit once the referred party makes a purchase. Bear in mind that this promo is still running (and ends at the same time).

OnePlus Feels The Holiday Spirit And Makes The OnePlus 2 Available Without An Invite Starting On December 5th

OnePlus Feels The Holiday Spirit And Makes The OnePlus 2 Available Without An Invite Starting On December 5th

OnePlus has been visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future, and they've been convinced to mend their frustrating ways. Either that, or the sales of the OnePlus 2 (which has been widely criticized for its hardware shortcomings) have been less than stellar, and the company no longer needs its rationing system in order to fill demand for the device. Starting on Saturday, the OnePlus 2 will be available for purchase without jumping through the hoops of the invitation system. It's a friggin' holiday miracle. The cheaper OnePlus X isn't getting the same treatment, but you will be able to buy one without an invite from December 5-7.

The VR Cardboard App For The OnePlus 2 Launch Is Now Available, Invitation Details Posted As Well

We pretty much know what the OnePlus 2 will look like thanks to a regulator leak earlier this week.
