Venmo is introducing new fees, and you're not going to like them

Venmo is introducing new fees, and you're not going to like them

Venmo is a popular user-to-user money transfer service, which gained a lot of ground for being easy to use and essentially free.

[Update: May enable Google Assistant on non-Pixels] Google App v6.13 "alpha" appears with support for Payments on Google Assistant, and prepares enhanced Offline Search, Lite Mode, Recent page, and much more [APK Teardown + Download]

Some users signed up to the Google app beta channel have been receiving an unusual "alpha" release of v6.13 update. It's not entirely clear if this was meant to find its way into the wild, and judging by many inoperable and buggy issues, I suspect it wasn't.
