Android Pay expands in the UK

Android Pay expands in the UK

(14 September 2016 – United Kingdom) Google’s rival to Apple Pay has expanded its network of bank partners in the UK this week.

Although the service has been available for nearly four months, some major banks were slow to offer support to customers. However, Google announced that additional banks including NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland, and Santander now offer the contactless payment service to customers.

While the majority of the UK’s biggest banks have jumped on board, Barclays has chosen to use its own system, and TSB is yet roll out Google Pay to its customers, but the technology giant said it is planning to add support “at some point this month.”

Most other major UK banks, including Bank of Scotland, First Direct, Halifax, HSBC, Lloyds Bank, M&S Bank, MBNA and Nationwide Building Society have supported Android Pay since launch.
