RIP Wear24: Verizon’s exclusive Android Wear smartwatch is gone

Remember Wear24, that LTE-enabled Android Wear device that came out of nowhere alongside the LG Watch Sport and Watch Style? If you completely forgot about it, that’s fine.

How to get the Samsung Pay app on Verizon’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge

samsung_galaxy_s7_edge_gold_front_closeup_weather_TA

So, you’ve just received your brand new, top-of-the-line, Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge smartphone, and a feature you’ve been looking forward to using, Samsung Pay, is nowhere to be seen. If this is your experience, you probably bought the handset from Verizon. The good news is that you can easily remedy the situation yourself, and it will only take a couple of minutes to do so.samsung-pay-galaxy-s6-edgeThis is a case where the ability to side-load applications on Android comes in handy. First, navigate to Settings/System/Security and tick the Unknown Sources box. Then, all you need to do is download the Samsung Pay APK from APK Mirror to your Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge and select install. It really is that simple.

Quite why the Samsung Pay app is missing from the Galaxy S7 devices is anyone’s guess. Verizon took ages to support Samsung Pay in the first place, and one wonders if the carrier’s involvement with competing mobile payments systems such as SoftCard has something to do with the app’s omission from the handsets.

If side-loading isn’t something you feel comfortable with, it’s mooted that Samsung will be holding a major Samsung Pay promotion from March 11th, where it’s thought that the app will become available for download from either Google’s Play Store, or Galaxy Apps. If true, there isn’t too long wait.

Verizon’s millennial-targeted video streaming service expected this week

verizon_go90_logo_teaser

Sometime this week, Verizon should be announcing a new video streaming service that will be targeted at millennials. The service, known as Go90, will call upon viewers to turn their phones 90 degrees in order to start watching television shows. G090 will not have any advertisements, instead generating revenue from advertisements.

Both live and on-demand programming will be available through G090. The content, however, will not include everything that a television network has to offer. Select shows from Comedy Central, Discovery, ESPN, NFL Network, and Food Network are offered in addition to online series from AwesomenessTV, Machinima, Tastemade, and Vice. Having ESPN’s programming offered is probably the most surprising; however, Verizon negotiated mobile rights for individual shows with its partners rather than going for an all-in-one deal. The live programming will primarily come from NFL games and concerts.

The New York Times explains Verizon’s decision in not associating the Big Red brand with Go90:

Executives made a conscious decision not to include the word Verizon when choosing a name for the new service, in part to appeal to as broad an audience as possible. That is important as Verizon seeks to bolster its mobile ad business and deliver to advertisers big audiences that watch premium content. Go90 also could serve as a marketing tool to attract new customers to Verizon’s wireless service.

Verizon’s Marni M. Walden pointed to G090’s target market, people ages 18-34, watching 70% viewing on mobile before any other form factor to prove that there is an “enormous opportunity.” The company wants viewers to talk about Go90 on social media. Because that’s exactly what millennials do, right?

Since this video streaming service is ad-supported, viewers will not have to be Verizon customers.
