Android smartphone owners will be able to use Android Pay in the UK wherever contactless payments are accepted. Much like Apple Pay, you’ll also be able to use Android Pay to travel on London’s transport network, which includes the Tube. Any payments will be limited to the current contactless limit of £30, but Google is also supporting other Android apps like Deliveroo and Yplan to offer purchases within apps. Google is also launching an Android Pay Day, which will include offers from retailers like Starbucks and Deliveroo. Android Pay is available for devices running Android 4.4 (Kit Kat) and above with an NFC chip.
