We have all had our list of expectations from Google for the I/O event that starts later today. And just as we lead up to the event, it is being said that the company could finally show off Android Pay, which has been rumored for quite some time now. The service was partially announced by Android and Chrome chief Sundar Pichai a couple of months ago, so its arrival was always on the cards.
It has been said that Android Pay will be revealed as an API and will be supported with apps by default. Enabling support for this payment service is up to the developers, which is always a good way to go.
The first day of Google I/O is traditionally when all the major announcements are held, so it is possible that this will be discussed right at the start. Given that Android M is expected to be announced as well, expect more details to follow on this front. The Google I/O kicks off at 9:30AM PT, so make sure you tune into Google’s livestream for more details on what’s new in the world of Google.
