Will Android Pay launch today?

Employee notices posted in McDonald's restaurants in the US suggest Google is preparing to roll out Android Pay today.

Google is expected to start rolling out its mobile payment service, called Android Pay, in the United States later this week.

According to a notice sent to employees at a number of McDonald's restaurants in the US, Android Pay will be available for customers to use from 26 August.

Like Apple Pay, Android Pay will allow people to pay for items in more than 700,000 stores in the US using their mobile phones, after linking their credit or debit card to the new service.

Identity verification is provided via the phone's fingerprint scanner, just like Apple's Touch ID. McDonald’s and Macy’s were slated as two of the places where Android Pay would be available first.
