Android Pay takes another feature from Apple Pay

Android Pay on Tuesday was updated with another new feature that brings it more on a par with Apple Pay. Android owners can now take advantage of Android Pay inside applications, which means you can use all of your saved credit card information to buy goodies, whether it’s dinner through OpenTable or a hotel reservation through Hotel Tonight.

“Just tap the Android Pay button in the app, confirm your information, and you’re done,” Google explained in a blog post announcing the news. “And just like your purchases in stores, Android Pay never shares your card details with merchants.” The app is supported by several apps already, though we suspect additional developers will begin to build the functionality in at a rapid pace.

In celebration of the launch, users can save $20 on OpenTable, $10 off Lyft, $10 off DoorDash and 30 percent off Vinted if they use Android Pay. Other supported partners include Houzz, Instacard, Spring, SpotHero, Vinted, Wish, Printicular,, Handy, JackThreads, ParkWhiz and Fancy.
