Functionality will at first be limited to a little over 600 ATMs in San Francisco and the Bay Area, but Bank of America hopes to expand that number to 2,400 machines by the end of May and 5,000 by 2017.

Users with an existing account can simply tap a button from an SMS message, email, or push notification, or if need be, get one relatively simply — Android Pay auto-populates the name, address, phone number, and email fields of a program s sign-up page.

It s, in a nutshell, a collection of simple tools to help retailers and developers create a standardized payments experience across browsers and platforms, which according to Bhan is key to customer retention — Android Pay merchants that have added features like auto-filled checkout fields have seen up to a 25 percent increase in conversions.

The Payment Request API dovetails with Google s Android Instant Apps project, a streaming system that allows mobile users to interact with apps without installing them.

Finally, Google s added support within Android Pay for third-party payment processors including Stripe, Vantiv, and Braintree that only require developers to write a few lines of code to integrate, according to Bhan.
