Google on Wednesday announced that it has begun testing an app dubbed "Hands Free," which allows Android and iOS smartphone users to make purchases via their devices without taking them out of their pockets or purses. Early adopters in Silicon Valley can use the payment system at a small number of McDonald's, Papa John's and other eateries. The app offers hands-free connectivity via Bluetooth Low Energy, WiFi and location services on a user's handset, which can detect when it is at a participating store.
