Android Pay recently put out its latest update, bringing the app up to version 1.10. It doesn't bring in much new, but there are a few hints at what is coming next, due to Android Police tearing apart the APK and taking a look at the code. Evidently there is a game included in the APK. It's not actually live yet, but the making for this game is included in the v1.10 APK. This game includes coins and such, it's likely that it will be part of some promotion, possibly for the holiday season. Error messages found in the code point to this being more than just a game for fun. There will be prizes included in this game, although it's unclear what prizes will be available. Users do also have the ability to opt out of the game.
On top of that, there are social media icons included in the game so that you can share it with friends. Making for a pretty interesting experience. This is likely something that Google will be announcing in the coming weeks, and with the code already available in the existing version of Android Pay, this could be a server-side roll out.
Other than the code for this game (which appears to be something for the holidays), there's nothing new in this APK. Not even feature-wise. Which means it's likely just a bug fixer for users that are currently using Android Pay. That's something you see with any update for any app, that there are plenty of bug fixes included. Android Pay, for the uninitiated, is an app that allows you to pay using your smartphone. Just tap your smartphone on the terminal at checkout, and you'll be able to pay using NFC. Additionally, rewards cards are now a part of Android Pay, so you can also scan your loyalty or rewards card at the same time.
