Google went to go all-in with mobile payments when it launched Android Pay in the United States near the end of 2015. Since then, Android Pay has gained support from more U.S. banks and credit unions, but its international rollout is taking a more measured approach.
Android Pay officially launched in the United Kingdom last month, and now it’s rolling out in another country: Singapore. As of this writing, Android Pay is is available to use at any checkout spot in Singapore that accepts contactless payments. Singapore is the first country in Asia to support Android Pay, and we hope that its adoption in the region will expand quickly.
Android users in Singapore will need to have an Android handset that’s running Android 6.0 Marshmallow and a handset that supports NFC to use Android Pay. Just download the Android Pay app from the Play Store, then add your credit or debit cards that you’d like to use.
Android Pay is now available in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Singapore. Google has confirmed that Android Pay is headed to Australia next, but there’s no firm launch date just yet.
