Making payments through Google Pay may become easier in the future, as Google is said to be planning to provide NFC-enabled UPI payments, according to what was monitored by the US Android Police website, as the tech giant has created a support page explaining how NFC payments work on Google Pay.
Near Field Communication or NFC technology allows one to make contactless payments, and with NFC built into the Google Pay app, users will no longer be able to scan a QR code and manually enter an UPI ID for transactions digitally.
One can simply tap their phone on the payment terminal to make the payment, while the Google support page also indicates that NFC payments will not work if the device is rooted, running on a dedicated ROM, or if the user modifies the factory software. The company says the service will not work on such devices for security reasons.
At the same time, Google announced an update to its policy and how it needed to introduce apps on the Play Store so that developers could ensure that “their apps and games are eligible for recommendations on all surfaces on Google Play.”
The technology giant has directed developers to limit the length of application titles to 30 characters, block keywords that indicate the performance of the store, promotion in the symbol, title and name of the developer, and put an end to graphic elements that may mislead users in the application icon.
