Android Pay hitting the Canadian market - Some major banks are MIA [RBC Update]


T-shirt. Check. Flip flops. Check. Android phone. Check. 
As Canadians exchange parkas and scarves for t-shirts and flip flops this spring, we have some news that may lighten their pockets, too. Whether you’re heading out to buy groceries or grabbing a cup of coffee with friends, now your Android phone is all you need to walk out the door. 
Today, we’re beginning to roll out Android Pay across Canada to help you pay simply and securely in stores and in apps.

[14:23 EST] RBC Official response to Android Coliseum:
While we are not participating in the launch of Android Pay at this time, RBC clients with Android mobile devices can use their RBC Wallet to safely and securely pay for purchases.  The RBC Wallet on Android gives users convenient access to their payment and gift cards at the point of sale.
As mobile payments technology continues to mature in Canada, we see significant potential through the innovation of our RBC Wallet and third party wallets to provide the seamless and convenient mobile transactions that our clients expect.
