Android Pay officially launches in Singapore

Android Pay is now live in Singapore. Android users in Singapore can now download the Android Pay app and add their cards in order to tap and pay at various stores around the island.

This makes Singapore the third country around the globe — and first in Asia — to get Android Pay, coming in right behind the U.S. and UK. The mobile payment platform can be used anywhere that accepts contactless payments. Users simply need a phone that has NFC and is running Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

As for its next stop, Google has confirmed that Android Pay should be launching in Australia soon, but there's no firm date on which to expect that launch.

  • Nice! All 3 mobile payment systems are now here in SG! Apple, Samsung and Android ;) Posted via the Android Central App
  • Hopefully Android pay launches in Australia soon. There have been reports that it's currently in the testing phase as of last week. I just hope it it'll be compatible with more than two cards (Samsung pay currently works with Citibank and Amex in Aus)
  • It sure would be nice to have in Canada for all the non-iPhone users. Google s really missing the boat big time in being so slow. Reminds me of BlackBerry, lol. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Yeah.. Or the Canadian Bank are too slow ? Some have a mobile payment, but they use a NFC SIm Card.... Why not use the NFC of the phone. lame..
  • When will Android pay launch in Canada? Posted from my Moto X 2nd gen and my Nexus 9 both on Android Marshmallow
  • I started using Apple Pay last week here in Singapore, works quite well. WI give Android Pay a go too. I don't see the point of Samsung Pay which is so restricted to certain models only. Posted via the Android Central App on my 6P
  • Samsung pay works the best out of all 3. Posted via the Android Central App
