Yesterday afternoon I made a payment in a local cafe with Google Pay, which went though perfectly fine. However when I tried to pay on a bus last night I got the message “You can no longer pay in shops with Google Pay”. I also got the same in Morrisons this morning and managed to screenshot the message:
I can’t seem to find anything online to suggest Google Pay has been discontinued so am wondering if its a Monzo issue or an issue with my OnePlus 5T.
I suspect it’s probably an issue with my device as I use LineageOS, a popular open-source Android distribution. I know Google only “tolerate” the various popular Android distributions these days.
However my device shows as certified for Play Protect in the Google Store and passes Google’s Safetynet checks.
