PayPal Galaxy S5 Fingerprint

PayPal's Android app has been updated in the Google Play Store today, adding the ability to use its fingerprint reader payment feature if a person owns a supported Samsung device.

Previously, the version of the PayPal app that supported Samsung's fingerprint readers was only available in the Samsung Apps store. Now it's available in the more popular Google Play Store version, and supports the Galaxy S5, the Galaxy Note 4, the Galaxy Alpha and the Galaxy Tab S tablets.

The PayPal app will now allow anyone with an account on the online payment service to simply swipe their finger when purchasing something if they own one of the four Samsung supported Android products.
