Android Pay set for UK debut "in the next few months"

Thursday 24 March 2016 | 09:44 AM CET

Google has announced that Android Pay is coming to the UK in the next months, in a move that will expand its competition with Apple’s rival system.

The service will support MasterCard and Visa as well as many of the UK’s banks such as the Bank of Scotland, First Direct, Halifax, HSBC, Lloyds Bank, M&S Bank, MBNA, and Nationwide Building Society.

Android smartphone owners will be able to tap and pay with Android Pay wherever contactless payments are accepted, and just like Apple Pay, they will also be able to use it to pay when traveling through London on the Tube. 

Android Pay is available for smartphones running Android 4.4 (Kit Kat) and above; the phones must also support NFC technology for tap-to-pay purchases.
