A few months later, an official announcement was made, confirming that PayPal would be integrated with Android Pay.

In order to pay via Android Pay using this online payments platform, users need to follow the following steps: Users need to tap the settings icon present on the top right corner.

In April, AP Hota, the managing director of National Payments Corporation of India (NCPI) - the developer of UPI - had revealed that wildly popular messaging service WhatsApp has shown interest in using UPI to launch its new payments platform in the country. It's unclear how widespread bank support will be for Android Pay when it launches. Earlier this week, Google confirmed that Android Pay had launched in Russian Federation, with support from 15 of its local banks.

Russian Federation is the 11th country to adopt Android Pay, following launches in the US, UK, Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong, Poland, New Zealand, Republic of Ireland, Japan and Belgium. Before the end of the year it is expected that South Korea, Taiwan, Brazil, Canada and Spain will join the list.

According to a third source, Stripe was in advanced negotiations to enter India through a partnership with UPI. The update is now live on the Google Play Store, but expect it to roll out slowly as an update and should arrive by the next couple of days. "As they do not directly have a large consumer base, their motivations are more to enable UPI for their overseas clients targeting Indian consumers and for Indian companies as a part of a broader payments acceptance offering".
