Android Pay to launch in Canada on May 31

A report today says that Android Pay is finally coming to Canada at the end of the month, just about 6 months since we first found evidence of the imminent rollout in a teardown of the Android Pay app. Get the Android Pay app from Google Play and add your eligible card to get started.

Starting today, Android Pay is available in Russian Federation - which means you'll be able to enjoy a simpler and more secure way to pay across all 11 time zones. "Just tap the "Add to Android Pay" button to enable your card in Android Pay without entering your card information".

According to a report out of the North American country, Google's mobile payments service will be officially launched there on May 31.

The integration will enable PayPal users to link their account to Android Pay.

The setup process essentially links your PayPal balance to Android Pay through a proxy Discover card - you'll have to keep an eye on shopfronts and restaurants to see if they'll accept Discover.

When the official announcement was made last month, Google said that it would take a few weeks for the integration to go live.

Supporting banks include AK Bars, Alfa-Bank, B&N Bank, MTS Bank, Otkritie, Promsvyazbank, Raiffeisen Bank, Rocketbank, Russian Standard Bank, Russian Agricultural Bank, Sberbank, Tinkoff Bank, Tochka, VTB24 and online payment service Yandex.Money, which also offers support for Apple Pay and Samsung Pay. It's unclear if that's available at the moment, however, considering PayPal integration with Android Pay is now limited to the U.S. If that applies to you, check out the Play Store to see if your app has been updated.
