The tech giant has given healthcare organizations, government agencies, as well as organizations authorized by public health authorities to distribute COVID vaccines access to the API. That means their developers can now easily create digital COVID vaccines and test cards that users can store on their devices.
As 9to5google notes, Passes is a Google Pay API used to store non-payment cards like retailer membership cards. However, there’s no need for users to download the Pay app if they don’t have it to be able to store the COVID digital cards created using the Passes API.
Once they get the digital card, they’ll be able to access it via a shortcut on their home screen even without an internet connection. That said, their devices must run Android 5 or later.
