At the Google I/O conference today, Google revealed that they will be making in-app payment APIs available to the public, meaning any developer who has interest can make Android Pay a reality for their app. That means no more entering your billing information every time you make a transaction; you can checkout securely through Pay’s functionality using simple security tools such as a password, PIN, or fingerprint.

Previously, these APIs were only accessible by a handful of partners, but now that it’s available to anyone, we can expect to start seeing a wider adoption of Android Pay across the app board. What’s more is that Pay’s functionality has been expanded to the web, allowing users on mobile devices to complete browser-based transactions quickly and efficiently.

With Android Pay on its way to the UK, it’s no surprise that Google is looking to expand its digital transaction system. Although we’re still a few years off from being able to leave our plastic behind completely, the expansion of Pay is certainly a pleasant thing to witness.
