Google has enhanced its APIs to make it “easier than ever” for developers to integrate Android Pay for in-app and web payments with “just a few lines of code”. The company has launched Android Instant Apps, which gives users the ability to pay using Android Pay in-app “with a single tap”, and is opening its Android Pay API to all developers selling physical goods and services in markets where the mobile payment service is available. Google has also launched PaymentRequest, a new web API that will be standardized across Chrome browsers through the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to enable Android Pay on mobile websites.
