Android Pay

Launched in September 2015, Android Pay is a mobile wallet that can store your credit cards, debit cards, loyalty cards, and more. Android Pay can be used at millions of stores around the world, wherever [NFC] contactless payments are accepted. 

In January 2018, Google merged Android Pay and Google Wallet into one entity, Google Pay. According to Google, apps like Airbnb, Dice, Fandango, HungryHouse, and Instacart already support Google Pay, with more sites and stores set roll out soon over the coming weeks.
