Google One VPN Service Expanded As Yoyo Games Adopts Subscription Model

Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL) is bringing its Google One VPN service to seven new countries, including  Canada, Mexico, the UK, France, Italy, Germany, and Spain. 

Google expands VPN service 

Late last year, the search engine giant started providing VPN access to 2TB Google One cloud storage members in the United States, in addition to the existing $9.99 per month option. However, the announcement marks a significant extension of the program. 

Unfortunately, you can only use the service in the supported countries. If you travel to a country that is not supported, you will not be connected to a VPN through Google One.  Equally, the VPN will not allow another region or country content by assigning an IP address. Instead, the system will set an IP address deepening on the country of location, and the websites will show customized content for the region. The good news is Google will prevent city or area tracking.

Yoyo Games moves to a subscription model 

Yoyo Games is offering GameMaker Studio 2  for free to all developers who want to learn the skills of developing games. It now means that developers will pay only when they are looking to publish and share their work. The company is moving to a subscription model to offer affordability and flexibility and removing restrictions from the free edition of GameMaker Studio2 to enable users to grasp the engine entirely. 

Three new subscription tiers have been added to the revised purchase options, including Free, Indie, and Enterprise. The Free membership gives you free access to GameMaker Studio 2, game assets, and learning materials. But to share and publish your work, you have to upgrade to Enterprise or Indie level. Enterprise subscription enables publication in Xbox One and S series and PlayStation 4 and 5.

TikTok most downloaded app in 2020

Data analytics firm App Annie has revealed that TikTok was the most downloaded app last year, overtaking Facebook Messenger. In addition, TikTok was the only app that is not Facebook-owned that made the top five list of downloads globally. The video-sharing app grew in popularity despite former President  Trump trying to ban it.
