Google is bound to introduce the tap-to-pay update for Android smartwatch. Google is still testing the innovative feature before implementing it. Specialists have found evidence of the existence of this feature in the version 10.0 of the Google Play Services. If you already own a smartwatch with an NFC chip, then you will be able to use the new feature by tapping the watch to a local terminal equipped with NFC, being able to pay for anything you want to purchase.
Besides this revolutionary feature, there is one more which is promised to be launched soon. It is called Instant Apps, and it was designed to get access to apps without installing them, but only streaming them. Android Police has claimed that the services of this app have been activating, meaning that it is currently being tested.
If you want to start using the tap-to-pay feature on your Android smartwatch, you will need to use Samsung Pay and a Samsung Gear S3. The new update is already available to users who own an Android watch outfitted with KitKat 4.4. Samsung released its new payment service. The Samsung Pay app is available for other Android devices, provided the user owns a smartwatch based on Tizen OS technology.
The Samsung Gear S3 device is outfitted with the exact payment technology implemented in the smartphones created by Samsung. You can pay by using the app on your watch anywhere within the borders of the US. Those who own an iPhone and an Apple Watch, they had already started using the new technology starting from a year ago.
Customers still have reasons to be disappointed regarding the late sales of the wearables and smartwatches. Thus, Intel has already registered a decrease in the development. What is more, Google has planned to delay the launch of the new Android Wear 2.0 on the market which was expected to available for purchase starting with this fall. The launching was rescheduled for 2017.
Also, specialists argued that most likely Mountain View has an good reason for the delay, probably working more to improve the software, making it worth the money. Fans also hope that the new wearable will be fitted with the Android Pay app. Despite the fact that Google Play Services have proved the existence of the tap-to-pay feature, it will not be available until the launch of the Android Wear 2.0 in 2017.
