Android Pay has just launched in Hong Kong. In this post we’ll show how to add your credit card to Android Pay step by step.
Before you begin, please make sure your Android device:
- Is NFC enabled.
- Runs KitKat 4.4 or later Android version.
- Is not rooted*.
*Rooting (jailbreaking for Apple devices) is a process that allows you to attain access to the Android operating system code and remove software restrictions. It gives you privileges to modify the software code on the device or install other software that the manufacturer wouldn’t normally allow you to. Android Pay works on non-rooted devices. To find out wether your device is rooted or not, you can take a look at this article. For reference you can also visit the official Android Pay page by clicking here.
