Google makes Android Pay contactless

Google makes Android Pay contactless

About Google Hands Free was known in May of last year, although no details of the launch of the company did not provide. However, now, Google is inviting residents of the South Bay (San Francisco) to participate in the early stages of the program, although it is only open to “small number of” local restaurants, including McDonald’s and Papa John’s.

Google is still in the process of bringing mobile payment Android Pay system, but the Internet giant is already expanding new pilot project that will allow you to bypass the need for “tap and pay” a physical device.

After a user installs the application and fill in your profile, Google Hands Free will use the built-in Wi-Fi services and location-based smartphone to determine whether you are in the immediate vicinity of the payment system.

When the user will have to pay, he just needs to tell the cashier that he was going to do it with the help of Google Hands Free and supply your initials. Cashier, in turn, identifies the user on the photo in the system profile.

In some stores, it will be possible to get rid of the need to use initials as a whole – the camera will scan your face and compare it with the profile for authentication and transaction processing.

Google, Apple and Samsung are actively fighting for their share of the profits from mobile payments, and we see significant steps towards improving the service. Cash obsolete for a long time, and contactless cards may soon take their place.
