There have been numerous hints that Android Pay was imminently launching in Canada and Russian Federation, so it’s nice to finally see the plan put on paper.
Coming towards the new version of Android that the search giant is revealing, it appears that it has got precisely those features that today’s mobile phone was craving for. Considering how few countries Pay is now out in (just 10), this is big news. Check the source link below to read about this in more detail. Interestingly, Google is also adding Bluetooth support on Google Home to play audio from any Android or iOS device in the future. Google made a number of updates to Assistant’s capabilities, including an interesting tie-in with yet another new Google product called Google Lens.
In a blog post, Google confirmed that it would soon allow US users to send or receive payments directly using Google Assistant.
And the coolest thing about the Google Play Store app is that, once you log in with your Google account, it keeps track of everything you download and install on your phone. This API is called Card Linked Offers and will see merchants engaging with their customers before they even enter the store. The company is also close to deploying a smoother mobile checkout experience for PayPal users.
Finally, Google is making it easier for loyalty cards to be added to its various marketing partners.
Until yesterday, the Android Device Manager service sat silently in the Administrator section of most Android devices’ settings apps waiting to be enabled and if enabled, quietly gathering crucial information on the device’s whereabouts. If you don’t need Android Pay, we recommend going for it, but being prepared to roll back if necessary. Therefore, it has high probabilities of getting well received by users.
