Google to bring Android Pay to more places on mobile web

Tuesday 25 October 2016 | 11:11 CET | News
Google entered into strategic partnerships with Visa and Mastercard to bring Android Pay to more places on the mobile web. Android Pay users will soon be able to pay on hundreds of thousands of new sites where Visa Checkout or Masterpass are accepted using their preferred device authentication method like fingerprint recognition. No longer will users have to remember multiple usernames and passwords in order to checkout, saving them time and hassle. Visa Checkout and Masterpass users who link their accounts with Android Pay can make payments in stores and online with a simple tap.
