Android Pay launched to existing Google Wallet users
Android Pay is now on roll to existing Google Wallet users, and for new users, the service will be available on Google Play in the next few days.
Announced at Google I/O earlier this year, Android Pay is an NFC-based payment system, which works at over a million locations across the US. Some of these locations include Best Buy, McDonalds, Walgreens and Whole Foods.
Android Pay works with cards from American Express, Mastercard, Visa and Discover for now. More banks, including Citibank and Wells Fargo, will be added in the near future, promised Google.
Google Wallet now focuses on sending and receiving money, as the transaction part is entirely shifted to Android Pay.
The existing Google Wallet users can look for the app update now. And new users can download Android Pay directly from the Play Store in the coming days.
