Can my phone work with Android Pay? I’ve heard this question more than once and I totally get you. After so many reports and rumours, Google’s wireless payment service has made it possible to allow Android users to start paying for their morning coffees through their smartphone. I bet that you at least want to give it a try too (if not using it all the time) and here I am to help you with that.

Unlike other competing services, Google is adding support for Android Pay to older devices too, rather than restricting it to those who buy the latest tech. If your current Android phone is running on KitKat version 4.4 (to check this, open up Settings and scroll down to ‘About Phone’) and has an NFC module inside, then the problem is already solved.

And if you are the owner of new LG G5, don’t even think that you cannot enjoy NFC and Android Pay. Thanks to running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and having a fingerprint scanner, users of this handset can easily make wireless mobile payments with Android Pay.

How to Turn On LG G5 NFC and Android Pay:

  1. All you need to do is download the Android Pay app from Google Play; for that, you may use this direct link;
  2. Then, you must turn on NFC in settings;
  3. Don’t forget to add a credit card;
  4. After that, just tap Android Pay;
  5. Now, just sign in with a fingerprint;
  6. Tap the LG G5 to a payment terminal to make a payment easily while on the go.

However, any phone that doesn’t have NFC and sits below Android 4.4 OS version is not incompatible with Android Pay.
