Google Wallet tap and pay support ending for phones not running KitKat in April | Android Central

Google Wallet tap and pay support ending for phones not running KitKat in April | Android Central.

This is a little disappointing, though it won’t affect me.  I’m using devices that will still be supported.  My guess is that this is because of low adoption of “Tap and Pay” and that Google is gearing up for a new push.  Since KitKat phones do not need any sort of permission from the carriers to use tap and pay, and with the future of NFC enabled terminals looking good, this is perhaps a short term move to play for the long game.
