No surprises really

hardly comes as a big shock it has been a pretty big failure for Google. The thing is though we need a rival for Paypal and now Apple Pay because no competition is unhealthy. Android is lacking an alternative to Apple Pay they've been caught short with that. It'll be tough to come up with a rival too as Google will want a cut and with Apple the finger print seems a good way to authenticate but that is far from a standard scenario on Android. In fact I can only think of two companies that have used finger print readers on Android phones...

I think Samsung will probably try an Apple pay clone, but their best bet is just teaming up with paypal
