A trusted source revealed earlier this week that Android Pay support may soon come to Android Wear, Google’s platform for smartwatches and wearables. The bit of news comes from a trusted source who found code in the latest version of Google’s Play Services hinting at the possibility.

Android Police made a discovery earlier this week in its latest teardown on Google’s Play Services apk. Revealed in the code are things called ‘tokens’. The source believes these ‘tokens’ have something to do with Android Pay and people using their watches to pay for goods.

Also revealed in the teardown of the apk file is moving progress with Google’s ‘Instant Apps’. This feature will allow Android users to use parts of an app without having it actually installed on their device. Sources believe it has a shot at releasing with version 10.0 of Google’s Play Services, which is due out later this year. Android Pay support for Android Wear devices is also likely to be included with this update. However, you’ll need to have capable hardware for this feature to work. Hopefully we’ll hear more on this sometime down the road.
