Verizon Galaxy Nexus house owners lose Google Pockets entry (replace)

Verizon Galaxy Nexus owners lose Google Wallet access (update)

Verizon has by no means completely been on the Google Pockets bandwagon. First, Huge Purple refused to help the cellular cost system, citing its dependance upon proprietary hardware. Months later, some people managed to achieve entry via the Play Retailer, however it seems to be like that the VZW GNex is, as soon as once more, Pockets-free. Phrase on the internet has it that these Nexus house owners at the moment are, upon opening the app, greeted by a message saying that their model of Google Pockets is not supported, and that they should replace the app. Drawback is, the Play Retailer is telling people that their units are not supported. We have confirmed the difficulty ourselves, however we do not know if this a short lived drawback, or if it is a everlasting transfer. We have reached out to each Google and Verizon for remark, and we’ll let you realize as quickly as we hear again.

Replace: Verizon responded to our requests, however declined so as to add any new touch upon the matter. As an alternative, VZW reiterated its earlier assertion that “Verizon does not block purposes. Google Pockets is totally different from different extensively-out there m-commerce providers. Google Pockets doesn’t merely entry the working system and primary hardware of our telephones like hundreds of different purposes. As an alternative, in an effort to work as architected by Google, Google Pockets must be built-in into a brand new, safe and proprietary hardware component in our telephones.”
