Google first introduced Android Pay at MWC 2015 earlier in the year and now the company is getting ready to launch their new mobile payment system.
The company has announced that Android Pay will be launching soon and will be accepted in over 700,000 stores in the US and also in 1000 Android apps.
With Android Pay, you can simply unlock your phone like you normally do, place it near a merchant’s contactless terminal, and you’re good to go. Android Pay does all the heavy lifting. You don’t even need to open an app—just tap and go. You’ll also see a payment confirmation and get transaction details right on your phone.
Also, with select retailers, your loyalty programs and special offers will be automatically applied at checkout. For example, when you tap to buy a Coke at a vending machine, your MyCokeRewards will be automatically applied. With Android Pay the contactless terminal not only receives your payment info, but also your loyalty programs and offers.
