Android Pay is set to launch in the UK as Google steps up to compete against Apple's own contactless mobile payments platform. According to Industry sources, the company is expected to roll out Android Pay next month.

With the roll out hitting your device, Android Pay will enable you to add your credit and debit cards to the app, which in turn will allow you to quickly tap to make payments with NFC readers. Think contactless payments but without needing to pull out your credit or debit card.

The launch of Android Pay will be a massive boost for the UK due to just how popular smartphones are running Google's mobile OS.
