Google launched Android Pay in the USA in 2015 and has since introduced the service in several countries, including the UK, Russia, Australia, Singapore and Japan. The mobile payment gateway has now added another country to its roster, letting people in Russian Federation pay for their online and offline purchases through their phones.

Russian Federation becomes the 11th country where Android Pay can be used, joining the USA, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong, Poland, New Zealand, the Republic of Ireland, Japan, and Belgium.
