Google Announces Android Pay

Google’s I/O event the company announced that Android Pay would be part of the Android M release. Much like Apple Pay, transactions are sorted via NFC and your actual card number isn't shared with merchants. Instead, it'll use a virtual account number to handle payments. When it arrives, the system will be employed by over 700,000 retailers like Macy's, Whole Foods, Walgreen's and many more. It'll also be used for in-app purchases, so if you're ordering food from Chipotle or paying for an Uber ride, you'll be able to use Android Pay there as well.
