Fascinating, thanks!

I just noticed if you block access to contacts you can now still access payments. When did that happen? :+1:

What’s the point of sending the token to Google if it’s being broadcast over Bluetooth anyway? Wouldn’t other Monzo phones be scanning for tokens over Bluetooth? I didn’t understand from the blog post how Google Nearby helps make the feature work.

I was assuming that it was the Google service that was responsible for managing the broadcast side meaning the app just needed to make a google call of some sort and wait for answers rather than managing everything else. I don’t know how realistic that is though.
