Really convenient. It's safer than carrying cards. If someone steals a wallet, they can use cards freely.. if they steal my phone they have to workout how to unlock my phone before they can use android pay. I also used to turn OFF NFC when not in use on my old phone, but while Sony made NFC a quick setting. The Pixel2 has that feature deep inside it's settings.
I really like the app, and would be perfectly willing to give it 5 stars... However, I do wish the functionality was there to secure payments with the fingerprint scanner on my Google Pixel XL. If someone was to steal my phone, they could also buy items with my debit card! No security there at all. This is the one failing it has compared to Apple Pay. Google, my advice to you would be to add fingerprint security to the app. Your users will thank you!
v1.34: using this as envisioned is still a work in progress. Some credit cards integrate easily while others struggle and require phone call coordination. Integration of pay station module with capability is still spotty. Of those that are capable, some work seamlessly and reliably whiles others do not. With all that being said, I still like this app regardless of those issues. I especially like not having to carry around all of my store account cards and gift cards.
Love it! For people saying that tech savvy people could copy your card while your phone is on and unlocked, your phone does ring and vibrate when any transaction is made. Giving two options, stop the person and or stop your card. For those that want a finger print scanner, put it on your lock screen as Andrid pay only works from your home screen. Love being able to track my transactions in real time. The only downfall is that not all banks are supported and you can't add 3rd party loyalty cards or metro cards.
I actually like the app, when it's working, although I really wish it would let me manually add 3rd party loyalty cards. My real problem with it is that it keeps randomly disabling itself with no explanation. I have to go into the play store and re-enable it.manually then drag it back into its assigned position. It is extraordinarily annoying. I might have to look into ditching it for Samsung Pay if it keeps up.
As a samsung pay user.. this android pay doesn't seem safe and secure at all. Unlock phone and u can pay immediately? What if a IT savvy guy do a prank and simply put his nfc gadget near my phone while I'm using? It is highly recommended for adding another unlocking step within the app itself. 2nd issue is this.. once I enter my card to android pay, it will be associated with all other google products. Lets face it. There are so many Google product and sometimes you don't even know which you used. How can I add my card where I may accidentally purchase something in a google app which I am unfamiliar with?
• You can now pay with a card other than your default. Just open the app and tap on the card right before you pay.
• Bug fixes and improvements.
