Renowned American multinational corporation Google has announced to launch a secure payment platform called Android Pay. Senior Vice President of Google, Sundar Pichai has announced this news at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015, held in Barcelona, Spain on 5th March. Android phone users can easily send and receive their payments without any plastic card through Android. One can easily use this app as a payment source and this could also prevent the users from internet fraud. Google will also enable Android Pay app to utilize biometric devices like fingerprint scanners. Payments can be made without a mobile connection once the data of credit card stored in the Android phone.
Google is not the first who introduces this app but two other renowned mobile phone companies Apple and Samsung do the same before it. Apple Pay was introduced in October 2014 and Samsung had announced last week to launch Samsung Pay. All the three apps, introduced by the 3 giants of the world are generally created for the same purpose but the features are somehow different.
Previously, Google had also launched Google Wallet app, which was very closed with the recent idea but it was failed to gain attraction by the users but Apply Pay had got success.
