Many thought that Android Pay would launch a week ago, after internal documents at spots like McDonald’s and Subway surfaced through media outlets with August 26 as the go-live day. Google then shushed everyone through a Tweet that said, “Looking forward to #AndroidPay? Stay tuned. #soon.”
The latest bit of potential launch information comes via information out of Verizon that suggests September 16 is the day. The folks at Phandroid first reported the date, but we were able to confirm with sources as well, that Verizon is expecting everything to kick off on 9/16.
At this point, you should go, “OK, I’ll consider that a possibility.” Clearly, Google has shared dates here and there with its partners that haven’t materialized. So for now, look to September 16. If it happens, it happens. It’ll be here before long.
