Google Debit Card Update

According to a TechCrunch report, Google is developing its own smart Google debit card that will assist consumers in shopping and track businesses online and in stores.

The initiative is intended to be a new direction on the existing Google Pay program, now using a digital Google debit card to enable a larger range of transactions, including electronic and peer to peer transfers. Extending the existence of a debit card could help Google keep track of transfers and transactions and give the company a valuable insight into customer spending.

In reference to Apple Card owned by Apple, which only functions as a full-blown credit card, Google is working on making their own to be a debit card and firms like Stanford Federal Credit Union and Citi is in partnership with them. The card might be extended to other types of processes of payment like MasterCard but for now it’s only design to be a Visa Card. Still in reference to Apple card, the debit card of Google is developed to be a tap-to-pay digital card for a smartphone and a real card with different virtual card number to be used online.

The Google app will also make transactions easy for consumers to monitor (including using services such as Google Maps and their vast merchant database for references or to search previously visited stores). The Google Pay program will also enable consumers to lock or disable the card entirely in the event of fraud or removal of their card.

Right now, though, Google’s debit card seems to clearly make the current debit card choices available from banks more convenient (and probably more secure).

TechCrunch’s statement does not appear to suggest that Google provides any incentives in using the system, such as numerous cash-back deals from the Apple Card or even whether users can obtain some discounts to buy the goods and services of Google using Google’s branded cards.

Also, the TechCrunch article does not say when the debit card is being launched or when the card will eventually be issued to the user.

TechCrunch’s statements came from the organization and it stated below.

We ‘re exploring how we can partner with banks and credit unions in the US to offer smart checking accounts through Google Pay, helping their customers benefit from useful insights and budgeting tools, while keeping their money in an FDIC or NCUA-insured account. Our lead partners today are Citi and Stanford Federal Credit Union, and we look forward to sharing more details in the coming months.

Apple Music is now free for 6 months; get it right now.

Apple Music is now free for 6 months

It’s just the right time to join it if you haven’t been on the Apple Music train. The free trial period for Apple Music’s Paid subscription has been extended from three months to six months. The advantage is that Apple Music is available on Android as well as on iOS devices. And also on computers (Windows or Linux).

For individual, family, and students who have not tried premium yet, the six-month free test offer for Apple Music is available in select several countries. Following the end of the trial period, Apple initiates a payment package that can be charged through your VISA, Master card or Debit card.

How to get the Free Trial for six months on Apple Music!

  1. Get the Apple Music App properly installed in your device by downloading it from Google play store for Android users and Apple store for iPhone users.
  2. Launch the app after installation, then open it and pick Try for Free.
  3. It will lead you to a page that will preview the number of months you have for free. If it indicates 3 months, your position is obviously not covered by this bid. In case your device has VPN and it’s in use, disable it, refresh your device and restart the process.
  4. When this is completed, click Try It Free. You will then be requested to pick a plan that you like. These plans also have rates which depend on your location.
  5. After the plan has been chosen, you are allowed to sign in either by means of the Apple ID you have already developed or by means of a new Apple ID. The free 6-month trial takes place after the plan and Apple ID have been chosen. Note, the trial or program may be cancelled at any time.

This is not known why Apple Music wanted to deliver a lucrative six months’ free trial, although it is extremely likely that this decision was made to persuade customers to sign in ahead of COVID 19. If you realize after six months that you don’t like Apple Music, simply cancel it.

Shipments of Smartphones in China falls to 18%

Shipments of Smartphones in China falls to 18%, Because of COVID-19.

More approximate estimates from Canalys. Following a 13% decline in global mobile shipments over a year, China’s stats are much worse. Shipments in Q1 on the world’s largest mobile market dropped 18 percent year-over-year. Perhaps, it was to blame for the COVID-19 pandemic.

It indicates that China was hit hard for the first time in Q1 because it suffered the new coronavirus outbreak. The first known case dates to the middle of November and ultimately has a major impact both on local retail patterns and on the global supply chain, which is primarily headquartered in China. The lowest figure since 2013 has been 72.6 million shipments.

PS5: Release Date, Cost, Specs, Gaming, etc.

Naturally, the numbers could have been higher. Although 18% is very high for an industry that had been declining long before the virus appeared, Canalys says those statistics have been rescueled by the new status of the smartphone as a ‘key commodity.’

The smartphone’s status as an ‘ essential’ personal item has stopped the market falling further during the pandemic.

The Q1 performance was also buoyed by China’s well-established ecommerce channel for smartphone distribution, and the fact that most Chinese businesses were able to resume work rapidly after two weeks of nationwide travel restrictions.

Unfortunately, the same conditions do not apply in any other major markets in the world.

In a quote, Canalys VP Nicole says.

However, economists remain “cautious” about the potential of the economy to rebound back in China, let alone the rest of the world, with certain countries already being impacted by the pandemic.
