You'll no longer need to bring anything more than your phone.

After some speculation, it's now official - Android Pay has just launched in Russian Federation.

Android Pay lets you check out quickly and easily in some of your favorite stores and apps - gone are the days of fumbling for credit cards and counting cash.

A week ago, Google announced that Android Pay support would be heading to the PayPal app for Android using the new Google Payment API.

Slowly but surely, Google is continuously unleashing Android Pay to the world.

Where can I use Android Pay?

Starting on May 23rd (which is already today in Russia), you'll be able to use Android Pay in Russian Federation so long as you have a smartphone with Android 4.4 KitKat or above that has NFC onboard.

Thousands of your favorite places already accept Android Pay, including Magnit, Perekrestok, Starbucks, KFC and Rosneft.

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. And just like when it rolled out to other countries, you can also use it to pay for in-app and online purchases as well, like in Lamoda, OneTwoTrip or Rambler / Cashier. All they need to do now is link their PayPal account with Android Pay. One source said that Google has already started testing UPI on its Android Pay platform while a second one who's tracking smartphone brands stated that Google was analyzing the launch of Android Pay in India through UPI.
