Google to expand Android Pay into UK markets
The move will take place over “the next few months” and allow Android Pay devices to be used as a tap and pay substitute for credit and debit cards.
According to Google’s announcement blog, Android Pay has only been available in the US since September, but has been “growing steadily with 1.5 million new registrations happening each month”.
Carolina Milanesi, California-based analyst spoke at the Kantar Worldpanel Comtech, and compared Samsung and Android technologies. She stated that “Samsung Pay has made a bigger impact here than Android Pay and is being advertised more heavily, if you look at the type of early adopters most likely to buy into the idea of wanting to do everything via their smartphone, they normally fit with the type of person who buys a high-end Apple or Samsung device.”
