Apple taking on Venmo? Apple Pay may let you pay friends

Tech Industry
Watch out VenMo, ApplePay may soon let you send money to your friends. I'm Bridget Carey. This is your CNet update. [MUSIC] Apple might be getting ready to take Apple Pay to the next level and let your transfer money between two iPhones. The Wall Street Journal has unnamed sources saying that Apple is talking with US banks so that users Can send money to each other, with Apple Pay. We already have apps that do that, one of the most popular is Venmo, owned by PayPal. SquareCash also lets you send or request money without paying a fee, and Google Wallet is another option. It may take a year for Apple to launch such a feature, but If Apple does get into the game, it would bring more awareness of the fact that you can send money to people by app. Venmo gain popularity with young adults, who would use it to request rent money from roommates, or quickly pay someone back for lunch. In other Apple news, the new Apple TV is growing into a more legit gaming machine with the help of Skylanders and Disney Infinity. The new AppleTV, which came out in October, can download and play games from the app store, but some console games are even being made for it now, like, Skylander Super Chargers, and the just announced, Disney Infinity 3.0. The starter packs are sold Stands for the characters and game pad controllers. Activision is also bringing Guitar Hero Live to Apple tv. Apple tv has its limitations of course and I'm not just talking about gaming. it does not have apps to stream from every type of service. Like there's no amazon app a nd it's more expensive than any other streamer starting at $150. But if you care more about streaming than games the Roku will fit you much better. It can stream just about anything and if you want to get into streaming game for cheap the company has really seen a Special edition of the Roku. For just $25 on Black Friday. The Roku SE goes on sale the day after Thanksgiving. It's pretty much the same as the Roku 1 model which is normally $50. But it's given a new name just for the sale. Switching gears a bit Microsoft is rolling out its first major update to Windows 10. There are some bug fixes. It'll boost. Faster and you'll see some design tweaks, but also you'll find new features. Cortana is getting smarter. She can scan your email to see what ticketed events you have coming up. It's similar to what Google can do. She can also read the notes you scribble with a Stylus pen. You can beam video from your internet browser to an Xbox One or Roku so you can watch on your TV. You'll find it as the cast media option in the edge internet browser. New Skype messaging apps are also woven into Windows 10 and the Xbox One is also part of the update. It brings a new Xbox One experience dashboard that should be faster. If you have any issues or bugs with the download, Microsoft did post an Xbox troubleshooting guide online. That's it for this tech news update and there's more at cnet.com. From our studios in New York I'm Bridget Carey. [MUSIC].
