Are you unexcited about Android Pay? Not liking your Wallet Card? Maybe you just want another Google payment platform… because? Then I’ve got great news: Google Hands Free will be a thing at some point later this year.
How’s it work? I’ve got no idea, because Google doesn’t actually tell us. Well, actually, we sort of do know, because Hands Free leaked as Plaso over three months ago.
The idea here is similar to that of the now-defunct Square Wallet, which used a combination of proximity detection and a picture of your face to allow you to buy stuff without ever having to pull out a credit card, phone, or even your ID.
