Google Testing 'Hands Free" Payment Service

Dear Tech Companies,

I don't need any more stupid ways to pay for crap. Cash and credit card are fine even though not everyone takes both these days. I don't need five thousand different payment services from Apple, Samsung, Google and everyone else that aren't accepted everywhere and all rely on my credit card anyway.

This prompted us to build a pilot app called Hands Free that we’re now in the early stages of testing. It lets you pay in stores quickly, easily, and completely hands-free. While the pilot is still in early stages, we’ve come to a point where we're ready to invite people in the South Bay to test Hands Free with us. Hands Free is currently available on Android and iOS devices and is rolling out to a small number of McDonald’s, Papa John’s, and local eateries in the area.
