Android Pay has been handling mobile payments for the Google faithful since September, and now it's ready to lend a hand inside apps. Starting today, you can use Mountain View's payments system to complete in-app purchases. Instead of having to pull out your wallet and manually enter card info, you can now easily tap the Android Pay button and confirm your details for quick transactions. The new addition gives Google's payments system a feature iOS users already had with Apple Pay.

Google says we can expect to see the new feature in a growing list of apps in the coming months. In fact, the likes of DoorDash, OpenTable, Lyft and others are offering some discounts to usher in Android Pay's arrival inside of those apps. What's more, Google says its payments platform is heading to Australia in early 2016 with more countries to follow throughout the year.
