Google Play Store goverment badge

Google has rolled out a ‘Government’ badge on the Play Store to identify official apps. This badge is marked by an icon of a building and appears in various sections of the store, including the main app feed, search results, and on app pages, next to the app’s rating.

Over 3,000 official apps have received the government badge after a period of testing. Google has collaborated with the respective governments and their developers to ensure the authenticity of these apps.

The badge is now visible on official apps from state and federal governments in several countries, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, the UK, and the US.

It is recommended by official parties or agencies to use government emails when setting up their developer accounts. Apps that involve sensitive information, like voting or ID services, undergo extra verification.

By clicking on the badge, you can confirm that the app is verified and affiliated with a government entity. This new feature aims to provide users with a secure way to access government services through their mobile devices.

One UI 6.1.1 6.1 features

Samsung has officially confirmed that its upcoming One UI 6.1 update will be equivalent to One UI 6.1.1. This major update aims to address specific user interface concerns recently reported.

A user recently highlighted an issue where, after updating to One UI 6.1, the alignment of the clock and date elements became irregular when using the default font. However, this issue was not observed with other fonts.

In response to this, a Samsung community moderator acknowledged the issue and assured users that they are actively working on a fix. Further, he explained that adjustments to UI elements like the clock and date alignment require specific corrections.

The fix for the issue will be implemented in the next One UI 6.1 update. He also mentioned that the next One UI 6.1 is equivalent to the One UI 6.1.1. This update will be delivered to users as a binary-level patch to ensure a seamless experience.

One UI 6.1-based upcoming software update for some Galaxy devices, excluding foldable and large screen models, will include features from One UI 6.1.1. Some Galaxy flagships are expected to receive these One UI 6.1.1 features by late July or early August 2024.

Prototype Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Z Fold 6: Have looks

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 Dummy

Images of prototype Galaxy Z Flip 6 and Z Fold 6 give us a closer look at Samsung’s upcoming foldables. The images of prototype/dummy units are obtained by 9to5Google, claiming to showcase crease and design. While the design can be considered, the crease can’t be like this.

Dummy units are made for just reference purposes at the device. These products have the same design measurements and weight as the original units. However, dummy manufacturers use cheap quality materials to create dummies, which have quite different attributes.

Considering dummy units, Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Z Fold device would have a wider cover screen. The screen ratio of the internal panel may also be enhanced to offer a better user experience. The width of the cover screen is extended by reducing the side bezel of the Z Fold 5.

On the other hand, the Galaxy Z Flip 6 looks almost the same as its predecessor. Whether it’s the camera arrangement or the design of the cover screen, everything looks the same. The improvements are expected to be seen in the hinge appearance and durability.
