Google has said that its mobile payments service will finally be up on mobile web “soon,” this means that users will be able to pay for online purchases using Android Pay in the very near future. Google has been working on expanding Android Pay out of Android-powered smartphones and the mobile web is the next logical step on the ladder. Google has now confirmed that it shouldn’t be much longer before users are able to pay for online purchases on the web using its mobile payments service.
Unsurprisingly, Chrome is going to be the first mobile browser that supports Android Pay. It’s unsurprising because of the simple fact that both Chrome and Android Pay are properties of Google.
“We’re moving beyond mobile apps and bringing the simplicity and security of Android Pay onto the mobile web,” Google’s global head of payment products Pali Bhat writes in a blog post, adding that
“Users will soon be able to speed through mobile checkout on Chrome using Android Pay on sites like Groupon.com, 1-800-Flowers.com and many more to come,” he added.
Google has made a few Android Pay-related announcements recently, it has finally confirmed support for Chase bank and has teamed up with Uber to offer 50 percent discount on rides provided that users pay with Android Pay.
