Google Pay has officially launched its app for owners of both Android smartphones and Wear OS smartwatches in Austria.
Austrian customers of neobanks and fintechs including Curve, Monese, N26, Revolut and Viva Wallet have been able to use Google Pay via their mobile banking app since November 2020, but Google has yet to confirm which additional banks and card issuers will now be supporting the service in the country.
The launch comes as Google Pay has also announced that it is adding support for contactless payments on Wear OS smartwatches in Bulgaria, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Portugal, Romania and Singapore.
Apple Pay went live in Austria in April 2019.
