Windows 10 Mobile to bring improved support for NFC payments (video)

Windows Phone does not have the best of luck when it comes to NFC payments but Microsoft continues to plough ahead, and in Windows 10 Mobile has added greater support for NFC payments, this time by adding support for Host Card Emulation.

Host Card Emulation removes the need to rely on a Secure Element on the phone or SIM card, thereby making it possible to implement NFC Payment support without the involvement of carriers or apps like Softcard.

The requirements align with those specified by VISA, MasterCard and AMEX, which hopefully means a more higher likelihood of future support.

See the video excerpted by NPU demonstrating the feature in action.
