Google could launch Android Pay Wednesday
Google seems to be preparing its new Android Pay service for launch on Wednesday. It will allow owners of compatible Android phones to make payments for things in shops with just a simple tap of their device in a very similar model to that of Apple Pay.
Android Pay was unveiled alongside Android 6.0 ‘Marshmallow’ at Google’s I/O developers conference in May. The service can be used to pay for goods in apps and shops with nothing more than a tap.
It will work with credit and debit cards from providers American Express, MasterCard, VISA, Bank of America and more. Participating retailers from launch include BestBuy, Subway, Coca Cola, Pepsi and McDonalds.
