Breaking News : Google working on Hands Free payment app for Android and iOS
#1

After launching Android Pay, Google is piloting a new payment app that Google calls the future of mobile payment. Called Hands Free, the app lets users pay in stores without even taking the phone out of one’s pocket or bag. The app is in early stages of testing.
While the pilot is in early stages, Google has invited people in the South Bay to test Hands Free. Hands Free is currently available on Android and iOS devices and is rolling out to a small number of McDonald’s, Papa John’s, and local eateries in the area.
Elaborating on how the payment process works, the blog explains, “Once you’ve installed and set up the app, Hands Free uses Bluetooth low energy, Wi-Fi, and location services on your phone to detect whether you’re near a participating store. When you’re ready to pay, you can simply tell the cashier, “I’ll pay with Google.” The cashier will ask for your initials and use the picture you added to your Hands Free profile to confirm your identity.”
At certain stores, Google is also experimenting with visual identification so that users can breeze through checkout even faster. This process uses an in-store camera to automatically confirm identity based on the user’s Hands Free profile picture. Google adds that all images captured by the Hands Free camera are deleted immediately.
