Google's Android Pay comes to Asia starting from Singapore

Google has announced the launch of its mobile payment service, Android Pay in Singapore, the first Asian country and third worldwide after U.S and U.K to get the service.

At launch Android Pay will work with MasterCard and Visa Cards from DBS, OCBC Bank, POSB Standard Chartered Bank and UOB. Retail stores that will accept Android Pay include 7-11, BreadTalk, Cold Storage, McDonald’s, NTUC FairPrice, StarHub, Toast Box, Uniqlo, and Watsons.

With Android Pay, users can store gift cards, loyalty cards and special offers on their Android smartphone. Google says that it is working closely with leading loyalty programmes such as NTUC Link's Plus! Rewards Programme and CapitaLand's CAPITASTAR, which will allow users to earn reward points and benefit from special offers across multiple retail outlets soon.

Users can also shop on their favorite mobile apps using Android Pay. Google will add the option to pay via Android Pay later this year in apps like  Deliveroo, Grab, Shopee, Singapore Airlines, Uber, Zalora, with many more to come.

The move comes after Samsung launched Samsung Pay in Singapore last week. Google plans to roll out Android Pay service to Australia and other Asian countries soon.
