Google astrophotography ported to Pixel 2 and older models


Google has finally added the biometric authentication system to the Google Pay app. Biometric authentication is a technology that will help you send money without going through the pain of typing PIN - now you'll be able to send money just by using your fingerprint or face. Rather than creating a more natural-looking photo, the color unexpectedly changes from bright red to stark yellow.

Dirty underwear and contested airspace: the long hunt for Baghdadi
Relatives of Kurdish fighters have celebrated al-Baghdadi's death. "We're protecting the dog's identity". In 2010, he became the head of the Islamic State in Iraq (ISI), an offshoot of al-Qaida in Iraq.

Though Alphabet Inc's Google owns Android, its open source nature enables device makers to customize the operating system and package other apps with the operating system before delivering them to users. It's adding support for Android 10's new biometrics API so you can use your fingerprint or face to authenticate transactions instead. Previously, you could only require a code before sending money and there was no way to use your fingerprint or face. We already knew this option was coming when we examined Google Pay's code earlier this year. Being the only biometric authentication method, you would expect that most apps would play nicely with the face unlock feature on the Pixel phones, but this isn't the case.

Watch The Final Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Trailer
The blockbuster, directed by JJ Abrams, will bring to an end the nine-part saga that began with the original Star Wars in 1977. Disney just released the final Rise of Skywalker trailer, and we get some big teases from the final chapter.

For now, biometric authentication only applies to the sending of money from within the app; it can't be used to authenticate NFC payments in stores. Specifically you'll need Google Pay 2.100 (or later), which you can grab from the Play Store, or from APK Mirror if you don't feel like waiting for it to roll out. It might be available on Android 9, too, judging from Google's documentation.
