OpenTable app now lets Android users pick up the bill

OpenTable announced today that it’s bringing its Pay with OpenTable feature to Android users allowing those booking reservations to also pay for meals using the app.

For participating restaurants, you’ll now be able to pay your check with a few taps inside the OpenTable app after adding your credit card.

“Millions of diners use our apps to discover and book the perfect table,” said Jocelyn Mangan, OpenTable Senior Vice President, Product Management.  “We’re excited to provide Android users with a payment experience that is intuitive and integrated into the OpenTable app they know and love.”   

The feature is only available in select cities and restaurants in the US, but OpenTable is always adding new additions to the list of supported locations.

The Pay with OpenTable feature is available through the latest version of the OpenTable app for Android on Google Play.

Google hasn’t officially announced any plans to integrate menus into search results, though the company is always looking for new data to add to its Knowledge Graph.
