Android Pay has been adopted by NatWest, Santander, RBS and Ulster Bank, allowing Google s contactless smartphone payment service to snap at the heels of Apple Pay.

Aside from TSB and Barclays, which has a habit of going its on way initially with new payment technologies, all of the UK s major banks now accept Android Pay.

However, TSB is expected to support Android Pay towards the end of the month.

Android Pay launched back in May, lagging behind Apple Pay which went live in Britain nearly a year earlier in July 2015.

Launching without the support of the major banks meant Android Pay adoption by consumers was initially slow.

But as more banks enabled payments using their cards via Android Pay, its adoption increased.
