Screenshots have appeared on the Google Play Store which show how the mobile payment system, one of the big new features of Android Wear 2.0, will work.
WATCH: MWC – What to expectLet us know what you think of Android Wear 2.0 in the comments.
For now, we await the official launch of Android Wear 2.0, which, if it doesn’t launch today, should be announced before the end of February.
Android Wear 2.0 is tipped to launch today, and while we’re still unsure as to whether Google will indeed reveal the new wearable OS, we’ve now been given a look at how Android Pay will work on the platform.
In order to make use of the new tech, however, your Android Wear watch will need Near Field Communication (NFC), which none of the existing models currently feature.
Android Pay on Android Wear isn’t going to save the platform, but that’s neither here nor there.
Aside from the countless LGwatch leaks, the Android Pay page in the Google Play Store has already been updated with screenshots showing the app working on smartwatches — one of Android Wear 2.0’s big new features.
Screenshots taken from LG Watch Sport/Style user guidesIt’s pretty much what you’d expect.
Rumor has it, we could see the Android Wear 2.0 begin it’s official rollout tomorrow and what better way to show off the latest version of Google’s wearable OS than with a pair of new smartwatches.
Both the LG Watch Sport and LG Watch Style are also said to make their worldwide debut and according to the shipping box, are “Designed with our friends at Google.”Although tomorrow is still up in the air, we know we’re definitely getting close.
Here’s how you’ll pay with Android Pay on your Android Wear 2.0 watch
Google uploaded screenshots of Android Pay working on the wrist to the Play Store listing, and these were spotted by Droid Life.
Android Wear 2.0 is rumored to land in the next few days, and a new leak has shown us exactly how some devices running the software will be able to make mobile payments.
The LGWatch Sport is heavily rumored to be compatible with Android Pay, but some other devices do have NFC onboard ready for the feature.
Using Android Pay, wearables with NFC chips inside will allow you to pay from your wrist, and a new leak from the Google Play Store itself has even confirmed the feature.
The LG Watch Urbane, Asus ZenWatch 3 and the SonySmartwatch 3 all feature NFC, so all we can do is hope each is upgraded to Android Wear 2.0 as soon as possible.
