Android Pay coming to the UK - Telegraph

29 February 2016  |  7082 views  |  0 androidpayinapp

Google will bring its Android Pay service to the UK next month, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Launched in the US in September, Android Pay lets users make contactless payments with their handsets and carry out in-app transactions.

Citing industry sources, the Telegraph says that it will be available to Brits with phones running up-to-date versions of Android from the end of next month.

Google has not confirmed any UK launch and there are no details on partner banks. In December it said that it was working to bring the service to several countries in 2016, beginning with Australia.

Rival Apple Pay arrived in the UK last summer, boosted by the cooperation of the country's biggest banks and Transport for London. Meanwhile, Samsung is also expected to enter the British fray at some stage this year.
