Android Auto rolls out to 6 more European countries

Although a bunch of cars now come with advanced navigation systems, these can rarely beat the simplicity and expansibility of Android Auto. 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.

Google took the unusual step of confirming the existence of its upcoming Pixel phone this year, but we don't expect the full Pixel 4 unveiling for another month.

Google Play adds billing methods for Colombia and Tanzania, tweaks payments in other countries

We take the ease of billing on the Play Store for granted here in the US, but many other countries don't have as many or as flexible options when it comes to picking up apps, movies, books, or music via the service. But for customers in Colombia, Tanzania, Thailand, Chile, and Peru, new payment methods are now possible. Conversely, France and Saudi Arabia have lost some options.

After launching in South Korea and the US in 2015, the service became available in China, Australia, Singapore, Spain, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Canada, and more countries. Thailand was expected to join the fun in 2016, but the service was only available as a limited early access test starting October 2016. Now it's officially launching country-wide.

Thailand is transferring into a cashless society and the government seems to have already put in place an e-payment strategy, so Samsung Pay comes in at the right time for the country.

Samsung Pay to come to Malaysia, Russia, and Thailand before the end of 2016

Of the different mobile payment solutions, Samsung Pay may as well be one of the most successful so far at expanding to different countries and implementing new features. After launching in South Korea then quickly following up in the USA (and later Puerto Rico) in 2015, it has come to China, Australia, Brazil, Singapore, and Spain.

These 7 countries will be joined by 3 more before the end of 2016: Malaysia, Russia, and Thailand. Samsung says this will bring the total of countries to 10 in 2016, which leaves a question mark regarding the promised availability of the payment solution in Canada and the UK also by the end of 2016.
