Headlines this week
  • Airtel and Vodaphone in India have opened up direct carrier billing in India for the Google Play Store. Customers in India can now buy apps and games with the carrier billing.
  • Square Enix is shutting down its Justice Monsters Five game on March 27th. The game was originally released alongside Final Fantasy XV as kind of a promotional thing since Justice Monsters Five was in the game proper. There has been no word on why the game is shutting down. Simply that Square Enix is sorry for the decision. It wasn't overly popular and it was kind of buggy, but it'll be gone by April. 
  • Vine is officially shutting down on January 17th. We've talked about this social media network ad nauseum over the last two months and we're nearing the end of the rope. According to the reports, Vine as a service will be shut down while the app turns into Vine Camera. The app will take the same old six seconds videos that can then be posted on social media. We know you're tired of hearing about it, but it'll all be over soon.
  • It was announced this week that Google Assistant will start to be made available on set top boxes and smart TVs. Most of those devices should be released sometime this year, including the freshly announced Nvidia Shield TV refresh. This puts into question how valuable the exclusivity is on the Google Pixel, but otherwise it's great news.
App Updates
Additional app releases, announcements, and deals
  • There are a metric ton of apps and games on sale right now. Google Play has a selection of apps going for up to 80% off and games going for 85% off. Alongside that, Amazon is having a large sale of its own for both apps and games. These are technically Christmas and New Years sales that are still going on. There are some excellent apps and games on sale if you're looking for stuff on the cheap.
  • Google Play is also having a sale on a number of movies, TV shows, and books. Some of the movies include Star Trek Beyond, War Dogs, and The Legend of Tarzan. The books include Deadpool Classic, West With the Night, and Civil War. Finally, the TV shows include The Flash season three, Arrow season five, and Big Bang Theory season ten. You can grab them in Google Play if you're interested.
  • Google has released a new app called Google Primer. The idea is to give people in India a short, but concise education on digital marketing and technology. It's a good bit of information and the training program doesn't take long to complete.
