Google has started rolling out Android Pay, its smartphone wallet service.
Android Pay will take a few days to arrive on all compatible devices, and will initially be accepted at more than one million locations across the United States.
The service works by storing a user’s credit, debit, gift, and loyalty card information on their Android device, and makes payment to a merchant from a selected card through NFC (near field communication).
Apple is running a similar service, called Apple Pay.
Android Pay is compatible with NFC-enabled Android devices, running at least KitKat 4.4.
No information on an international roll-out was available at the time of writing.
