Android Pay comes to Service NSW shopfronts, with more options coming

Google only released its new digital wallet system for Android smartphones in the Australian market last month and the New South Wales government is already jumping on board.

This makes sense, according to Minister for Finance, Services and Property Dominic Perrottet, because 90% of Australians have a mobile phone, and those running the Android operating system are more popular as a group than iPhones:

“Governments have traditionally been very slow on the uptake when it comes to new technology, whereas customers latch on much more quickly.

“With Service NSW we are completely changing that — becoming fast followers — so that our customer service keeps pace with the options people want.”
