All a bit confusing at the moment as the Google Pay app cannot be installed but you can install Google Wallet, which when you open it says Google Pay.
Google Pay works with credit or debit cards from participating card issuing banks on any NFC-enabled Android device running Lollipop 5.0 or higher for in-store purchases. Customers can use devices that are not NFC-enabled to make Google Pay purchases in merchant mobile apps.
