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.
You will get hands on help from our friendly engineers on how to optimize your Android app for Chromebooks.And developers might be able to take advantage of the Play Store s significantly more mature deployment features, including A/B testing, staged app rollouts, developer replies, and others.Last month, eagle-eyed Reddit user TheWiseYoda spied a setting in an early release of Chrome OS — version 51 in the Developer Channel — that referenced a way to enable Android Apps on Chromebook devices.The groundwork for the migration has long been laid.Later that year, Google began letting publishers seed Android apps to seed users, but in a limited fashion — installs were restricted to the Chrome Web Store.Last year, the Wall Street Journal reported that Google had been working for two years to merge Chrome OS and Android, and that it planned to launch the result — a new, unified operating system that runs on PCs — in 2017.
Android Pay is also making its first big international push, with the payments platform launching in the UK Wednesday and coming to Singapore and Australia "soon."The mobile payment system, which Google first unveiled a year ago, is also getting support for contactless payments on public transit, with support for Transport London, which includes busses and trains.Android Pay's biggest competitor, Apple Pay, has been rapidly expanding across banks and the globe, coming to Singapore, Australia and China since the beginning of the year.But with Google's latest announcement, it looks like Android Pay isn't far behind.At launch, Android Pay was supported by more than 700,000 stores in the U.S. Now, it will also be compatible with all electronic, contactless payment systems in the UK including in Starbucks, Waitrose and public transportation stations, provided you have a card from one of the supported banks.Android Pay in the UK is now supported by Bank of Scotland, First Direct, Halifax, HSBC, Lloyds Bank, M Bank, MBNA and Nationwide Building Society and Google says more banks will add support soon.

As the rumours predicted, Google used the opening presentation of its annual developer conference, I/O, to reveal a new personal assistant aimed at the home.Called Google Home and voice-activated with the entire power of Google s search engine built into it, Home is set to launch later this year.The device connects to your home WiFi network and can also sync with Chromecast devices, meaning it can control TVs as well as other connected devices including speakers and smart appliances.The device has a striking similarity function-wise to Amazon s Echo, which launched last year – something even Google CEO Sundar Pichai referenced when announcing the device.At the heart of Home is the updated and supposedly more intelligent Google app software and the new Google Assistant.This is said to be better at understanding context and able to offer better proactive suggestions to users as a result.
