    Thread Starter

    I have been told Google, Android ver. 4.4 Kitkat no longer supports eSE embedded Secure Elements on Mobile (NFC) Payment Smartphones, and now only supports HCE NFC usage, which routes the payment credentials away from the SW NFC USIM card and into the CLoud, when with use of tokens is push back down fro the CLoud provisioned with payment token in place of credit card details ack to the POS, point of sale at retail payment terminals.

    Is this correct, has Googel stopped support of embedded secure element and now only support HCE - Host Card Emulation from ver. 4.4 KitKat?
