As promised, Google has brought Android Pay to the UK. The app is now live in the Google Play Store, meaning anyone with a compatible credit or debit card can link their bank account and start making payments. The Bank of Scotland, First Direct, Halifax, HSBC, Lloyds Bank, M&S Bank, MBNA and Nationwide Building Society are all on board at launch, however it might take a little while before your particular bank is up and running. Oh, and don't expect Barclays to support Android Pay any time soon. It's a little preoccupied with its own Android app.

Once everything is set up, you'll be able to use Android Pay almost anywhere contactless payments are supported in the UK. It will also integrate with other Android apps, including Deliveroo and YPlan, so you don't have to enter your payment or address details every time.
