Finally! Android phone users who are sick of their smug Apple-owning friends swiping onto public transport with their phones and watches, can now swipe away themselves. Android Pay has launched in the UK and is accepted on London public transport.

Android Pay can be used on the tube, buses, trams, most national rail services, cable car and Thames Clipper river bus services. To find out more, see Transport for London's website and the Android Pay website.
