Google announced a new app called hands Free that will allow you to make in-store payments with just your voice. Never reach for your wallet, smartwatch, or phone again with Hands Free. All you will need to do is tell the cashier you want to pay with Google, and you can then pay using your voice. The Hands Free app does not share your full credit card details with the store, just the necessary information to transfer money for your payment. Hopefully this helps improve our security by minimizing shared data, so we don’t have more data breaches like we had last year with Target.
The app is expected to released later this year, but limited to the San Francisco area only until the bugs are worked out. As of right now, the project is still in its infancy state and only Papa John’s and McDonald’s are signed up for this program. If you live in San Francisco and are interested in signing up, hit the link below.
