Touch-friendly controls are coming to Chrome OS

  Touch-friendly controls are coming to Chrome OS Google's lightweight Chrome OS was never intended for touch, but that didn't stop the likes of Samsung and Acer creating touch-enabled Chromebooks. It probably helped that the OS was set to receive access to millions of Android apps. All that was left was to put those touch displays to good use. And, the updated launcher for Chrome Canary (the experimental iteration) is a sign of things to come.As you can see in the video, the new touch-friendly launcher sits at the bottom of the screen with just the Google search bar and suggested apps visible. From there, you can swipe up to reveal all your apps.

  Samsung Pay will soon tap into your PayPal account © Provided by Engadget Samsung Pay has been steadily increasing its payment options since it debuted two years ago, and now it's adding a new vendor to its services. Soon, Samsung Pay users will be able to use PayPal in-app, in-store and online.

Users can add their PayPal accounts to Samsung Pay and use their PayPal wallet anywhere Samsung Pay is accepted. And because it uses proprietary MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission) technology, which allows you to use Samsung Pay at terminals that don't accept NFC, it's accepted more places than any other mobile payment platform. Merchants will also be able to accept Samsung Pay online through PayPal's Braintree.

Google Play Music's New Release Radio is available for all users

  Google Play Music's New Release Radio is available for all users Google has officially announced New Release Radio, a station on Google Play Music that provides users with a daily selection of new songs they may like based on their listening history. Now, Google is saying that it was "gathering feedback" from Samsung users before officially rolling it out to everyone -- but the screenshots we saw from users on Reddit last month clearly called it a "Samsung exclusive" feature.

Using PayPal wallet with Samsung Pay is only currently available in the United States. However, Samsung is working on expanding PayPal wallet support to the 18 other markets it serves, including Spain, South Korea, China and India, soon.

This is a good move for PayPal as well. The service has been moving more and more into mobile payment methods. With these integrations, you may soon be able to use your PayPal account just like a real bank account.
