Android Pay is available starting today

Google just announced that Android Pay, company’s tap-to-pay smartphone wallet, starts rolling out today. 

The payment service will be accepted at more than 1 million locations across the US, and that includes GameStop, Panera, Macy’s, Subway, Whole Foods and Walgreens. Android Pay works very similar to Apple Pay. The app stores your debit or credit card and requires you to place your smartphone near an NFC-connected terminal. Android Pay uses tokenization and that means the service does not share your card details with the retailer – transactions are processed via individual account numbers.

Android Pay is compatible with most NFC-enabled Android devices and requires at least Android KitKat 4.4 and above. It supports credit and debit cards from Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.
