No Need To Scan QR code, New Feature For Google Pay

Published

on

Nowadays, most of the people are using the Google Pay to complete their transactions. It is one of the most widely used payment applications in India and it is a UPI-based payment app. Last year, Google announced the NFC-based payment system. Now, Google Pay is adding the NFC (Near Field Communication) feature to its payments app.

With the new feature, users can make contact less payments for UPI purchases on their smartphone. UPI enables instant inter-bank transfers between two users. According to the Google Pay Support page, UPI payments over NFC are currently only supported by Pine Lab terminals.

NFC stands for Near-Field Communication and refers to a set of protocols that allows two electronic devices to communicate over a short distance. NFC systems are used in contact less payment systems, which allows you to pay with your phone instead of or in addition to credit cards and electronic smart cards.

To make UPI payments using NFC, Simply tap or hold your phone near an NFC terminal, and the Google Pay app will automatically open on your phone. After that, all you have to do is enter the amount and the UPI pin to complete the transaction.

With NFC, there is no need to interact with your UPI-based app for a QR code or a UPI address but for this you need a high end phone. People with mobiles that do not have NFC can use the regular UP payment process.

LG plans to launch a face mask with a built-in microphone and speakers that will allow users to carry on conversations without having to remove the mask. LG released the Puricare wearable air purifier last year, and the beta model is now being improved.The microphone and speakers are supposed to utilize VoiceON technology, which eliminates the need for users to remove their masks or raise their voices in order to converse.

“Employing LG’s unique air solution technology, the new PuriCare Wearable delivers enhanced all-around performance with a smaller, lighter, more efficient motor. What hasn’t changed are the reliable LG DUAL fans which control airflow automatically by sensing the user’s breathing patterns to make breathing easier and more natural,” LG notes in a statement.

The weight of the mask is 94 grams and has a 1000 mA battery that lasts up to 8 hours and can be recharged in two hours using an easy charge USB cord. According to LG, the PuriCare Wearable’s elegant, ergonomic design reduces air loss around the nose and chin, resulting in a tight but pleasant seal for hours.

LG has not specified whether the mask filters the air that its users exhale in the same way that it filters the air that they inhale. The company has not mentioned the date of launch, but has stated that it will be officially launched in Thailand in August, with other markets to follow if local regulators give their approval. The Puricare masks were also worn by 120 Thai players, coaches, and staff for the summer games in Tokyo, according to the firm.
