Last week, Samsung said its widely touted artificial intelligence tool Bixby - seen as a rival for Apple's Siri - won't be fully operational in time for the USA release of the Galaxy S8.

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.

Lastly, Google Play Music will be integrated into Samsung's new virtual assistant Bixby when it launches later this spring.

"We're thrilled to bring this special version of Google Play Music to Samsung customers anywhere, and we look forward to bringing the best music experience to your Samsung device".

Here's the big one: Browne's ex once posted photos of bruises on Instagram that she said Browne gave her. Browne divorced first wife Jenna Renee Webb in February 2016 after she accused him of domestic abuse.

With the new Google Play Music - a smarter, more assistive music streaming service - we strive to deliver the right song at the right time and place to more people. Google Play Music will now be the the default music player and service on all new Samsung phones and tablets globally - and Samsung sells a lot of phones. 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. Naturally, this partnership is going to result in the creation of some Samsung-exclusive features in Google Play Music. YouTube Red is not available in all territories worldwide just yet, so Samsung's customers in regions where service isn't supported will unfortunately only get Google Play Music.

The three-month trial of Google Play Music offers ad-free and on-demand access to more than 40 million songs and thousands of playlists, in addition to access to YouTube Red (where available).

Google announced Friday that in a bid to increase subscribers of its streaming service it struck a deal with Samsung to make Google Play Music the default player and service on all Samsung devices from now on.
