Naturally, due to being a huge beta tester and living in an evolving center, I was hugely excited when I stumbled upon the juicy news nugget that Android Pay is now working on the Android N Preview. This feature was missing from the first two preview releases most likely due to them being considered alphas, while this third preview is being touted as a beta. Regardless, Android Pay is back and it’s working –everyone rejoice!
Now Google didn’t just feel like enabling Android Pay as a feature, but rather they have started approving CTS (Compatability Test Suite), which is basically an automated testing harness that makes sure code/apks are executed properly on your device. Android Pay require CTS in order to function, as well as other apps, and it’s not just something that you can enable in your settings menu, so thanks Google. Unfortunately though, the Sony Xperia Z3 (one of the only Sony phones you can get easily in the US), doesn’t have working Android Pay even though it is running the third Android N preview.
So if you’re running around town with one of the latest Nexus devices, head into your nearest McDonalds and order everything on the menu, while you leave your wallet at home! If you don’t have the app, you can download it from the Play Store below.
