Android Pay coming to five new countries, streamlined PayPal support to be added


Android Pay is already available in 10 markets, but Google won't stop until the mobile payment service reaches millions of new customers. During Google I/O press conference, the company announced plans to introduce Android Pay in five additional countries.

Although Google hasn't been exactly clear as to when exactly Android Pay will be available in these new markets, at least it did mention the service will be launched in Brazil, Canada, Russia and Spain, and Taiwan.

With the addition of the new territories, Android Pay will be available in 15 countries, which is quite a small market considering the importance of the service. Hopefully, Google will be able to fasten the expansion of Android Pay at some point so that the rollout to new markets won't take so long.

Furthermore, Google confirmed it will soon add a streamlined mobile checkout experience for PayPal users, in addition to the already available Visa and Mastercard partnerships announced back in October.

There's probably more to come from Google in the coming months, as the company is trying to strengthen its presence in new markets across the world.
