How to get your Android phone or tablet to pay you back
- by admin
Google has rolled out an ad-free version of Android for its Nexus devices, allowing users to pay for apps and content through their phones.
But it’s not clear whether the move will encourage more developers to adopt the technology, and users may find it hard to get the same level of security and security protections as other apps.
In a blog post this morning, Google said that it was introducing “digital ad screens” that let users pay for a “small number” of ad-supported apps and other digital content through the phone’s microSD card.
Users must have at least two-and-a-half megabytes of free space on the phone, and Google said the ads will appear when the phone is in a dock or plugged into a TV.
Google said users will be able to add their credit card information to the account and then download apps or content to the phone.
The app-downloading will occur within the Android app store, and apps will appear on the home screen, in addition to other content, including Google Play.
Users will be limited to one-time payment of $1 per app or $5 per video.
Google also said it would add “favorites” and “unwanted” ads to apps, and make it easier for users to disable or remove those ads.
Google has also introduced a “Google Play” tab in the settings menu, allowing apps to be installed on a Nexus device by users without having to go through Google Play itself.
While Android is now a standard for Android phones and tablets, many companies have started building apps that use it.
Apple has built its own version of Apple Pay, and Samsung has launched its own payment app, Paypal.
Google says its app will also allow users to “pay for content from Google Play.”
The Google Play app has a payment option, and there are several other options, including “unlocked” versions that require that users install an app from Google.
Google also said that users will now be able “add your credit card info to the app” to avoid additional security risks, and it would make it easy for them to download apps.
But Google also made clear that it will not be adding payment services from third parties, including Apple, Samsung or others.
The company has previously rolled out its ad-blocking features to Android devices, including through its Google Play Store.
Google told developers that the feature would be available on Nexus devices starting today.
