Android Pay is available starting today

Android Pay, Google’s tap-to-pay smartphone wallet, starts rolling out today, the company announced in a blog post. Android Pay will gradually hit all compatible devices over the next few days and it’s accepted at more than 1 million locations across the US, including Toys ‘R’ Us, GameStop, Panera, Walgreens, Macy’s, Subway and Whole Foods. Android Pay stores your credit, debit, gift and loyalty cards, and allows users to pay simply by unlocking their phones and placing it near an NFC-connected terminal.

Android Pay is compatible with NFC-enabled devices, meaning those that run at least KitKat 4.4, and it will be available across all carriers.
