We’ve been waiting for this news for quite some time but Google has now finally revealed its plans for a new payment solution that could really impact the world of mobile gaming: Android Pay. Ever since Apple released Apple Pay we’ve known that the internet giant would have something up its sleeve to rival its competitors and this week we’ve learned a little more about what it might involve. Currently Android Pay has no launch date as it is due to be released with the highly anticipated Android M. Many digital experts have compared the idea of Android Pay to Google Wallet, but there are several major differences between the two services. These include: Device compatibility, fingerprint verification and, importantly, the ability to support brands and credit providers. The product, when launched, is said to be compatible with over 700,000 retailers. The benefit of Android Pay is that it will be compatible with any Android NFC device, with Google claiming that, when it launches, seven in every ten Android mobiles will already be set to go. Although Android Pay will only be released to the market to accompany Android M, any device that operates with Android 4.4 Kitkat will also be compatible with the new digital payment service.
