Samsung Electronics Co. started official sales of the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8 Plus smartphones in South Korea, kicking off full-fledged efforts to strengthen its mobile business hurt by the discontinued Galaxy Note 7 phablets a year ago.

According to a report from The Korea Herald, a number of financial companies in South Korea are looking to offer users with an option to authenticate digital transactions with the iris scanner on their Galaxy S8. In exchange, Google has promised that its music service will work in harmony with Samsung's very own Bixby personal assistant.

Google Play Music is a streaming service like Spotify and Apple Music, and while there is a free version, a subscription will get you full access to more than 40 million songs. Samsung previously launched its own streaming service, Milk which was subsequently shut down. On Friday, April 21, coinciding with the retail launch of the Galaxy S8, both companies announced that Google's music app will become the preferred music player on Samsung mobile devices. When the largest Android smartphone maker - and one of the biggest smartphone makers, period - makes a point to run your app, your app is doing well.

UK prime minister defends decision to seek snap election
If MPs approve the election, parliament would hold its last session on May 2 and the campaign would begin in earnest. The remaining 27 European Union countries will be asked to endorse Tusk's guidelines at a summit on April 29.

What's changed now is that Google is making enhancements to the Play Music service exclusively for Samsung customers. A Korean news outlet, Korea Herald, reported a Samsung spokesperson stating, "Because there are some complaints about the red-tinted screens, we chose to upgrade the software next week for all Galaxy S8 clients." . When you ask Bixby to start playing music, it'll default to Google's app.

It's something of a no-brainer for Google to offer up all this storage space - all but the most insanely die-hard music collectors aren't going to hit Play Music's 50,000 song upload limit, let alone this expanded 100,000 song offer.
