Android had introduced their own platform based Android Pay on September last year which allows the users to make the money transactions with any NFC enabled Android smartphones. But the Android Pay is currently not available for UK. There is already Apple Pay and Barclay’s BPay had got introduced in UK, but both having more restrictions over the user. Now, Google has officially confirmed the launch of their own mobile money platform Android Pay at UK, which will be within a few months. Google offers the money transaction over Android Pay simply and securely.

Android Pay has a facility named Transport for London (TfL) which allows to travel across London with just a tap, so we can pay the transportation fee easily.

Plenty of App services including BestBuy, Peet’s Coffee&Tea, etc have already connected with the Android Pay and more are coming.
