Google has announced its competitor to Apple Pay with the all-new Android Pay system. The service, much like Apple's, allows you to make contact-less payments with a compatible phone and it also stores your credit card data when you want to easily pay for goods online.
The focus here also isn't simply to make payments easier, but also to make the more secure. None of your actual credit numbers are sent with your payment so all your data stays safe and secure using a tokenization process.
The service will support cards from all the big issuers including AMEX, Visa, MasterCard, Chase, Bank of America, and many many more. You'll also be able to immediately use Android Pay with most stores that features NFC-enabled terminals for conact-less payments. That includes over 700,000 shops including brands like Best Buy, Nike, and Whole Foods, just to name a few.
Android Pay will soon be available for download via Google Play
