Wallets at the ready - Android Pay is now available on the web through Google's Chrome browser.

So long as you're shopping within Google's browser, and the retailer in question is supporting the search giant's payment system, you'll be able to use Android Pay to check out quickly and securely, taking advantage of its encryption systems and hidden account details.

Android Pay will also now feed into Uber's Payment Rewards program, meaning you'll receive ride discounts if you use the Google service to pay for Uber journeys.

In fact, if you're a US user, you'll get 50% off the next ten Uber rides that you use Android Pay to pay for.

That's not to say the UK goes completely without some Android Pay lovin' though.

While US Android Pay users with Chase bank accounts can now also use Android Pay, those in the UK with Santander or TSB cards will be able to sign up for Android Pay "in the coming weeks" too.

Apparently, the Ulefone’s latest rugged phone – the Armor 2 – isn’t just tough.

The company has indeed announced that starting today you’ll be able to use Android Pay on your durable handset.

Android Pay is a digital wallet platform developed by Google to power in-app and tap-to-pay purchases on mobile devices.

This payment method is a very advanced and cool way to shop in the millions of stores that endorse it worldwide.

The Ulefone Armor 2 is able to support Android Pay due to the presence of an NFC chip.

Thanks to it you can put your device close to a receiver that will recognize the chip and go through with the payment.

Google has expanded its mobile wallet service Android Pay to work in the UK.

The company said it had chosen the UK as the next country to get the service - following its US launch in 2015 - because British consumers were already familiar with contactless payments.

Google's mobile payment service Android Pay has been fully launched in Taiwan.

Taiwan is reportedly the fourth Asian market to support Android Pay.

For Android smartphone users in Taiwan, they can use Android Pay to realize mobile payments rapidly and securely.

Android Pay has reached deals with many banks in Taiwan, including CTBC Bank, First Bank, Entie Commercial Bank, Hua Nan Bank, and Shin Kong Bank.

At present, there are 13 countries and regions that support Android Pay in the world, including United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong, Poland, New Zealand, Ireland, Japan, Belgium, Russia, and Taiwan.

Google launched Android Pay in America in September 2015 and it expanded the service to several other countries and regions.

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.

Today at Alphabet's annual developer's conference, the company announced a host of new tools for developers working with Android Pay—including support for Android Instant Apps, a new feature called PaymentRequest, and improvements to the Save To Android Pay API.

In a call with Ars on Tuesday, Senior Director of Product Management for Android Pay Pali Bhat said that the Android Pay team has been working to increase user signups and encourage continued use of the platform, something that all mobile payment platforms have struggled with in the last five years.

If users tap an Instant App URL, the app will run without installing or taking up valuable space on the user's phone.

With an Android Pay button, an Instant App from a parking garage could speed along the checkout process, for example.

One of the more interesting new features for developers wanting to use Android Pay is going to be the PaymentRequest API, which will allow Android Pay to fill out Web payment forms through a browser.

The tool will initially be developed for Chrome and then be expanded to other browsers.

Google's Android Pay and PayPal have teamed up to make mobile purchasing easier...well, at least that's what they're hoping.

The two tech companies on Tuesday said they are growing their existing partnership by soon allowing US customers to use PayPal as a payment option within Android Pay, Google's mobile wallet.

That way, someone with a PayPal account can connect it to Android Pay and start using his PayPal credentials to buy in-store, in-app and online where Android Pay is accepted.

"It's really just another step for Google to give their users another choice when they pay for something with Android Pay," said Aunkur Arya, general manager of mobile for PayPal's Braintree team.

This step could help make setting up your Android Pay wallet a little simpler, so you won't have to reenter all your card information from scratch.

Cutting out that little bit of friction and providing Android Pay users with a trusted name like PayPal could help spur more adoption of mobile payments, which major tech players including Apple, Samsung and Amazon are all pushing for.

Android Pay has launched in the UK Google

Android Pay has finally arrived in the UK on Wednesday 18 May 2016 , meaning that you can now pay for goods and services using an Android smartphone using Google's contactless payments system.

Working in much the same way as rival systems Apple Pay and Samsung Pay, Android Pay essentially a rebranded, much-improved version of Google Wallet allows you to carry out transactions at contactless NFC payment terminals by tapping your phone against them – provided you've first downloaded and installed the Android Pay app.

Here's a rundown of what you need to know to get you up and running.

After downloading the Android Pay app from the Play Store, boot it up and select the Google account you want to link it with.

You can also use Android Pay to get around on the London Underground and buses.

Bank of Scotland, First Direct, Halifax, HSBC, Lloyds Bank, M Bank, MBNA and Nationwide are supporting Android Pay at launch, but Barclay's, NatWest and Santander customers are out of luck.

New developer APIs will make in-app and mobile web integration simpler.In-app: Android Pay is already integrated into a limited number of apps.

That could further broaden the wallet s addressable audience, since mobile users tend to spend the majority of their commerce-related shopping time in browsers but complete purchases at a much lower rate than PC users due to friction associated with slower connections and small screens.

Loyalty: Android Pay users can add loyalty and gift cards by selecting a deep link via an email, SMS message, or push notification.

Google s expansion of Android Pay s use cases could help make Android Pay more competitive while accelerating adoption and pushing users to test the service.Mobile wallets have lagged in adoption because limited in-store and in-app acceptance has hindered habit formation among potential wallet users.

But as loyalty programs are integrated and more consumers rely on their mobile wallets for other features like in-app payments, adoption and usage will surge over the next few years.Evan Bakker, research analyst for BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service, has compiled a detailed report on mobile payments that forecasts the growth of in-store mobile payments in the U.S., analyzes the performance of major mobile wallets like Apple Pay, Android Pay, and Samsung Pay, and addresses the barriers holding mobile payments back as well as the benefits that will propel adoption.Here are some key takeaways from the report:In our latest US in-store mobile payments forecast, we find that volume will reach $75 billion this year.

Other potential add-ons, like in-app, in-browser, and P2P payments, will also start fueling adoption.

Android Pay has been around for only a few years but as of today, a whopping 1,012 financial institutions are compatible with the payment platform.

This is as a result of 16 financial institutions which became compatible with the platform.

Considering the intense competition from Apple Pay and most recently, Samsung Pay, Android Pay needs to be on top of its game if it must succeed because as of now, it appears that Apple Pay has more support than Android Pay.

Android pay is used globally and it is adding banks from Europe, Asia, US, UK and other regions.

Here is the list of the financial institution which just joined Android Pay.

We’re used to hearing about new banks that have signed on to support Android Pay as Google ever-expands its mobile purchasing system.

But an announcement this morning is looking to add even more value.

Now you’ll be able to use Android Pay even if you don’t have a bank or credit card to add to your wallet.

Google has announced a partnership with PayPal that allows you to use your account to buy things anywhere Android Pay is accepted.

While PayPal users have long been able to access their accounts in the real world via PayPal Credit, the new Android Pay integration will open up mobile contactless payments to a wide array of people, allowing them to use the balances to pay for things at McDonalds or Wal-Mart.

The partnership is a boon for Android Pay, which is competing against Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, and other store-based services for dominance.

Google announced this morning two strategic partnerships with Visa and Mastercard aimed at expanding the reach of its mobile payments service, Android Pay.

The company says that Android Pay users who are shopping online from their smartphones will soon be able to make payments on hundreds of thousands of new sites where either Visa Checkout or Masterpass are accepted at checkout.

Visa Checkout and Masterpass are Visa and Mastercard s own attempts at carving out their own space in online payments, as a competitor to services like PayPal and Apple Pay, for example -the latter which arrived in Apple s Safari browser, on both desktop and mobile, this September.

Google, on the other hand, is touting how its payments service, Android Pay, is designed to work with existing solutions to improve online checkout across the mobile web.

It notes that those merchants who have already enabled either Visa Checkout or Masterpass won t have to make any changes on their end when the Android Pay support goes live, as their buttons will update automatically.

To use Android Pay on sites that offers Masterpass or Visa Checkout, consumers will first have to link their accounts to the respective services in the Android Pay application.

Last month, Android Pay broke into Asia by launching in Singapore, and today the service is turning its sights south and launching in Australia.

Android Pay will be launching with support from 28 banks across the country, but of the largest four banks in the region, only the Australian and New Zealand Banking Group is supporting the roll out from the beginning.

That, hopefully, won't be an issue for long, as Google tells The Australian Financial Review that it will be looking to add more banks to the Android Pay roster as time goes on.

Apple Pay beat Android Pay to the punch when it comes to an Australian roll out, but Android Pay should have an easier time attracting users.

That's due to the fact that Android is more prevalent among Australian smartphone users, though ANZ CEO Shayne Elliott said that the launch of Apple Pay was a successful one for his bank.

Google's ability to attract new users to Android Pay depends on whether or not it can add those other three big Australian banks, as The Australian Financial Review says that 80% of Australians use one of the big four as their main banking institution.

In addition, consumers will be able to use Android Pay when shopping on mobile Web browsers.
