Published

Google Play Store

Google Play Store is a digital distribution service developed by Google. On all Android-enabled smartphones, the Google Play Store acts as the official app store, allowing you to find and download apps, games, magazines, and more.

Recently, Google announced that it will no longer update Google Play Services to Android Jelly Bean, including versions 4.1-4.3 (API levels 16, 17, and 18).

The Android Jelly Bean (JB) platform was first released 9 years ago and as of July 2021, the number of active devices is less than 1%. Since then Android has released a lot of improvements and features that can be reverted to Jelly Bean.

This results in the growth of developers and QA time spent on new features that require special management. As a result, you downgraded JB’s support for future releases of Google Play services. For devices using JB, Google will no longer update the Google Play Services APK over version 21.30.99, scheduled for the end of August 2021.

What does this mean as an Application developer:

The Google Play services SDKs (Software Development Kit) contain the interfaces to the functionality provided by the Google Play services APK (Android Application Package), which runs as background services. The functionality required by the current, released SDK versions is already present on JB devices with Google Play services and will continue to work without change.

Samsung Care+ Saudi Arabia

Samsung Care+ is a stunning service that users can combine with the device while purchasing. In a recent development, Samsung announced Galaxy users will now be able to raise two claims per year.

The Samsung Care+ program now covers two claims per year in India. The new policy applies to all kinds of Care+ plans that include Accidental and Liquid Damage Protection and Screen Protection only. Previously, it covered two claims within two years.

It’s a pretty significant decision the company has taken given consumer satisfaction. We’ve observed cases of consumer dissatisfaction with authorized Samsung centers and staff assigned there. They either lack idea about the latest flagship products or delay unusually.

The company offers the Care+ subscription for free with flagship devices in select countries. Paying a one-time fee, you can raise a claim at authorized Samsung service centers.

It ensures your Galaxy device is repaired through an official channel at a minimal cost. Samsung’s Care+ program is available for smartphones, laptops, tablets, and other devices.
