Google Play Store is rolling out a significant update regarding the app and in-app payment. Android’s native app market has a vast range of applications and games for free. However, there’s a paid app category as well, which users found worth buying as per their preference.

According to the info, the Google Play Store has added a button that lets you create a payment link while purchasing an app or in-app item. You can use this link to ask someone else for payment on your behalf. It’s starting to roll out in India, with expansion expected gradually.

The user who taps the button is warned that the person who’s paying has to know their full email address, and can see the item that’s being purchased. Notably, app developers don’t have to do any additional work to support Google Play’s new “ask someone else to pay for this item” button.

A system share sheet will be displayed to share the payment link through a range of apps and services. Once generated, the payment link will be valid for 24 hours. The payer will have to make successful payments within 24 hours to buy an app or in-app stuff for the sender.

Samsung’s Sizing Kit will help you pick the perfect Galaxy Ring



Samsung Galaxy Ring Honor

Samsung will be releasing its Galaxy Ring device in July this year. Potential consumers may have been concerned about picking their ideal size. Well, Samsung will likely offer a Sizing Kit that will be delivered before the Galaxy Ring so you can pick the size.

Earlier this year, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Ring at Mobile World Congress. As the formal release is scheduled for July, the company is already working on consumer convenience. As everyone doesn’t know their ideal ring size, Samsung prepared a pretty interesting hack.

Leaker EvanBlass revealed that Samsung would ship a Galaxy Ring Sizing Kit to potential buyers. If you are interested in purchasing a Galaxy Ring and unsure about the ring size, you will get a Sizing Kit upon ordering the Galaxy Ring and choosing the “I don’t know my size” option.

Once done, you will receive sample rings, letting you find the best size for your preferred finger. Later, you can pick the preferred size and confirm the order to get the Galaxy Ring delivered. It is expected that the Ring will be available in a total of 9 different sizes.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 update September 2023 update US

Samsung might launch Galaxy Z Flip 6 Slim and Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slip GalaxyClub reports. While the company is marching towards its July Unpacked, rumors about new Slim models are surfacing now.

RossYoung hints that Samsung might introduce a Galaxy Z Fold 6 Slim. It could have a larger display than the regular phone and lack S Pen support. This variant could hit the market later this year in the fourth quarter.

The Z Fold 6 Slim is model-numbered Q6 Slim, while there’s also a B6 Slim. B6 is the model number of the upcoming Z Flip 6, with Slim also expected. These rumors point out that the affordable foldables might be Slim.

At present, we don’t have any idea of the specifications of the Slim foldables. Earlier, it was reported that Samsung was heavily shocked by the reduced thickness of foldable phones released by Chinese vendors specifically Huawei.

It looks like the Korean tech giant has decided to trim some key specs in order to make foldables thinner. Those who want pro-grade specs would have option to go for strategic models, while Slim variants would extend the choice.
