YouTube Gaming introduces sponsorships as paid channels are shut down

We've been hearing for a while that YouTube was planning to do away with paid content and now it's finally taking effect. It's no longer possible to create paid content, and from December paid channels will no longer be accessible at all. Individual purchased videos will still be available to whoever bought them until 2022, however. Fortunately, for gamers at least, Google is introducing an expanded version of sponsorships for YouTube Gaming, which have been in testing for some time.

Paid Newsstand Content Launches In Malaysia And Thailand

Before getting Google Play content onto our Android devices, Google has to dot its i's, cross its t's, and shake hands with the right people all over the globe. If a country doesn't have access to certain things in the Play Store yet, chances are Google is still jumping through hoops. After all, the company would love for as many people to use its services as possible.

Google Play Newsstand Paid Content Now Available In The Philippines, Poland, Taiwan, And Ukraine

Newsstand is probably the least sought-after of Google's various media offerings in the Play Store, if only because most of the content found in those newspapers and magazines is available elsewhere. Even so, Google seems to be standing by it. Today four new territories have access to the paid issues and subscriptions in Newsstand: the Philippines, Poland, Taiwan, and Ukraine. Readers from those countries, head to the Play Store on the web or your phone or tablet to check it out.

As usual, the change was posted in an update to the official Google Play availability chart. Free content on Newsstand is available everywhere, but so far only 22 countries have access to paid content.

Paid Newsstand Content Goes Live In Indonesia, Brazil, and Mexico

If you live in the 4th, 5th, or 11th most populated countries in the world — in layman terms, that's Indonesia, Brazil, and Mexico — you should pay a visit to the Play Store and check out the Newsstand section — or Banca (de jornais) in Portuguese. There you will find that you now have access to paid magazine subscriptions.

Thanks to this addition, users in Brazil and Mexico will be happy to know that they have access to almost all Play Store content (only TV shows are missing on their checklist), whereas Indonesian Android fans still lack access to movies and music. But this is good news nonetheless: users get more choice and Google gets a new revenue source.

At Last, Customers In Serbia Can Purchase Paid Apps From The Play Store

There are a ton of apps available in the Play Store, and while a large number of them are free, some require forking over some cash. This generally means each user has to decide for themselves whether or not a piece of software is worth the money. But for people in Serbia, there's been no such option. At least, until now.

For years, potential shoppers have waited for Google to bring the option to pay for apps to Serbia. The option was there a long time ago, but it went away, and users have missed out on so much good content in that time.

Paid Google Play Newsstand Content Now Live In Italy

When Google released Newsstand, it married content from Currents and Magazines. This brought stories from around the web, along with paid magazine and newspaper subscriptions to one place. The problem, however, is that paid content isn't yet available 'round the world.

Today marks the arrival of paid content to the Newstand app in Italy, making it the fifth country to get support for the service. Both the application and Newsstand homepage appear to have been updated for Italian users, and there's also a promotional page to help users find new content to purchase.
