Unlock "Justice League" bots with Android Pay

Unlock

We can expect a lot of movie tie-ins, product placements, games, etc.

If you use Android Pay regularly, you'll probably be aware of the little bugdroid characters that will sometimes appear when you pay for stuff.

It was just previous year that Android turned their iconic bot into a space explorer and since then, they've adapted to various occasions and events, kind of like what happens with Google Doodles.

An updated version of Google's mobile payment platform, Android Pay, has begun rolling out to users, bringing not just new functionality, but a promotion created to celebrate the upcoming film Justice League. Between now and December 31st, you'll be able to collect five different characters from the film: Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Cyborg, and Aquaman.

We already knew that Android Pay would land in Brazil some time in 2017, and today's launch comes just a few weeks after it arrived in the Ukraine, while there has been a number of other major market launches this year including Russia, Canada, and Spain.

Make sure you've downloaded the latest version of the Android Pay app and added a credit or debit card. Use it to pay for any of your purchases and you'll get the chance to get any of the five. Tap on your bots to share them with friends and family - and invite them to join in. Android Pay is also scheduled to roll out in Slovakia shortly. In recent teardowns of the Android Pay app, Cody found references to doodle collecting and sharing, although it wasn't clear if this had anything to do with the doodles you see on the Google Search homepage.
