The updated app was quietly pushed live yesterday, and Google has now officially confirmed that Android Pay is available for anyone in the U.K., assuming they have a compatible NFC-enabled device.Similar to Apple Pay, Android Pay lets users purchase goods in physical retail stores by associating their MasterCard or Visa card with their device and swiping their phone against a contactless terminal at the point of sale.It can also be used to pay for things within third-party apps, including those by JD Sports, Deliveroo, Zara, Kickstarter, Airbnb, and YPlan.Crucially, Android Pay can also be used on London s public transport network, including the Tube and buses.The Internet giant launched its Apple Pay competitor last May, but so far, the feature has only been available in the U.S. Google did confirm back in March, however, that Android Pay would be landing in the U.K. some time in the next few months.The company has now confirmed that it will be launching in Australia and Singapore soon, with more countries added to the mix in the coming months.So it sounds as though the U.K. is serving as the launchpad for a major global rollout across 2016.Google had previously confirmed that eight banks would be on board for launch — Bank of Scotland, First Direct, Halifax, HSBC, Lloyds Bank, M Bank, MBNA, and Nationwide Building Society, though it did note that more would be added.Barclays was also slow to embrace Apple Pay, which has been available in the U.K. since last summer.

Functionality will at first be limited to a little over 600 ATMs in San Francisco and the Bay Area, but Bank of America hopes to expand that number to 2,400 machines by the end of May and 5,000 by 2017.Bhat demonstrated during the session with Walgreens loyalty program, Balance Rewards.Users with an existing account can simply tap a button from an SMS message, email, or push notification, or if need be, get one relatively simply — Android Pay auto-populates the name, address, phone number, and email fields of a program s sign-up page.It s, in a nutshell, a collection of simple tools to help retailers and developers create a standardized payments experience across browsers and platforms, which according to Bhan is key to customer retention — Android Pay merchants that have added features like auto-filled checkout fields have seen up to a 25 percent increase in conversions.The Payment Request API dovetails with Google s Android Instant Apps project, a streaming system that allows mobile users to interact with apps without installing them.Finally, Google s added support within Android Pay for third-party payment processors including Stripe, Vantiv, and Braintree that only require developers to write a few lines of code to integrate, according to Bhan.

In a bid to win over more Indian developers, Apple on Wednesday announced it would set up by early next year a facility to help developers on best practices and to improve the design, quality and performance of their apps on the iOS platform.Apple estimates that over 1 million people in the city work in the tech sector, with over 40 percent of graduates from local universities specializing in engineering or IT.Apple s CEO Tim Cook is on his first visit to India, which he has identified as a growth market for the company, where he expects disproportionate growth versus the more developed areas.Developers usually try out a concept first on Android before offering an iOS version of the app, as it is easier to validate the concept with the large amount of feedback you get from Android users, he added.But iOS is also attractive for developers because users of the iPhone tend to have higher purchasing power and are more likely to retain apps they download, in contrast to Android users who frequently delete apps to save on memory on their phones, Mathew said.The company will also give developers access to tools which will help them create innovative apps for customers around the world, and provide support on Apple s Swift programming language.
