Google has finally released some (very vague) numbers on usage of its new payment app, Android Pay. Google’s senior vice president of ads and commerce, Sridhar Ramaswamy, says that “millions” of people linked their bank cards to Android Pay since its September launch and that 60% of those people had never used Google Wallet. Seems like releasing a new service instead of sticking with Wallet was a major win for Google.
He also announced that Android Pay will be getting loyalty rewards programs, the first of which will be Coca-Cola. Swiping your phone at Coca-Cola vending machines will earn you points for future soda purchases. More loyalty programs will come later.
Android Pay looks to be working out far better than Google Wallet ever did, so if you haven’t tried it before, check it out on the Play Store!
