Sadly, though, Google's in-car service isn't globally available, leaving many users unable to properly use their favorite services from their ride's dashboard. Thankfully, Android Auto is expanding to 36 more countries, making it seamless to get directions, play music, and interact with Assistant, thanks to native integration with your car's infotainment system.

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.

Now, another round of updated and new voices have arrived for even broader international support.
Whether it's adding support for more banks or public transit cards, Google Pay is expanding, both in the US and across the world. The service continues to grow as fifteen more European, Asian, and Australian banks' payment cards now work with it.
There's nothing like the sinking feeling of seeing your smartphone fall into the sea, with no hope of ever retrieving it. One moment you were happy taking photos on your boat cruise and the next, plonk! Forever gone. Unless you're the luckiest person on the face of the planet and a beluga whale swoops in, grabs your phone, and brings it back up to you, grins widely, and asks for nothing but a few gentle pets. This whale is the gooddest boy/girl ever.
