"Imagine if you are in a hurry at the drive-thru and you need not take your wallet," said Pali Bhat, Google Product Manager. "It inspires us to develop an experimental application called Hands Free, which is still the early stages of testing," he added.

The digital wallet application will use Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, which can be detected by the places that include payment technology Hands Free. This application also gives the ability to the smartphone to recognize the locations that use the paid method.
