Earlier this year, Google brought together Android Pay and Google Wallet to form an all-in-one service, Google Pay. Now the mobile payment option is available on smartwatches in more countries.
Android Police reports that Google Pay is now available via Wear OS in Australia, Canada, and Spain. Up to this point, Google’s mobile payment service on the line of watches was only available in the United States and the United Kingdom. Unofficially, though, many smartwatch owners were able to use the mobile payment option outside of the U.S. and the UK.
Now that Google is expanding Google Pay support on Wear OS, the company says it is “working to roll out support for more countries soon”, but there is no specific timetable for a broader rollout.
In Australia, Google Pay on Wear OS will work with the Opal ticketing system to purchase tickets. In Australia, Canada, and Spain, it’ll work for mobile payments the same way it does in the U.S. and the UK.
