Google Pay can find your tickets and loyalty cards in Gmail

Google Pay can find your tickets and loyalty cards in Gmail It just became decidedly easier to use your Android phone to board a flight or see a movie. Google Pay is rolling out a server-based update that lets the app automatically fetch boarding passes, tickets and loyalty cards from Gmail. You'll have to enable it yourself (it's under Settings > General > Gmail Imports), but this could save a lot of time if you're tired of sifting through messages to find a ticket at the theater. Don't be surprised if the feature isn't available yet on your phone. It was when we tried it, but Google's rollouts can take days or weeks.

Google on Wednesday teased its next phone. A Google spokesperson confirmed it's called the Pixel 4.

Google doesn't normally publish early images or tease unreleased products, but it may have decided to do so following several recent leaks. It appears to have a unique camera set up on the back, though it's unclear what sort of new functions it will add. Google's Pixel phones have regularly been considered to have some of the best phone cameras on the market.

The picture looks almost identical to that published by OnLeaks and Pricebaba. The former is a Twitter account run by Steve H. McFly that has accurately leaked information about phones well ahead of launch.

The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL were announced last October and were followed by the more affordable Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, which launched in May. The Pixel 4 will likely be joined by a larger XL model as well.

It's unclear when Google will launch the Pixel 4, but it typically releases its new phones in the fall after Apple's September iPhone events. That's also when Google usually releases its next version of Android.

Android Q is currently in developer testing and does not yet have a final name, but will succeed last year's Android 9 Pie release.

Nokia's new budget phone has a dedicated Google Assistant button.
HMD Global has announced a new affordable Nokia smartphone after launching a five-camera flagship and a bunch of low-to-mid end devices just a few months ago at MWC. The Nokia 2.2 is part of the company's Android One family of devices and will ship loaded with Android Pie. Once Android Q comes out, the phone will be able to run it, as well. The device also comes with a dedicated Google Assistant button users can press to summon the voice AI. HMD Global released phones with the button in the past, and by the looks of things, we might see it more often in its future devices. Nokia 2.2 is powered by a quad-core MediaTek A22 CPU chipset and has a 5.
