Google has announced that Android users in the UK will be able to safely and securely pay from their devices using the operating system’s tap and pay functionality.
MasterCard and Visa debit and credit cards will be supported from a variety of banks including, but not limited to, the Bank of Scotland, First Direct, Halifax, HSBC, Lloyds Bank, M&S Bank, MBNA, and Nationwide Building Society.
Natwest have stated that they are not supporting Android Pay yet, but an announcement is imminent.
Now just as Google made the announcement that Android Pay was live in the UK, Google changed their mind. So don’t panic. Natwest have already told me their announcement was imminent and its the start of Google I/O. So expect to see some action over the next day or so!
To install Android Pay, click Google Play Store Link to Android Pay and install the app.
