Had it not been a leap year we would saying at the end of this month. At long last it looks like Google will be releasing Android Pay for the UK market.
Apple have been way ahead on this, Barclays have beaten other banks even if it is for their Credit Card customers but at long last mobile payments will be headed to your Android device. Samsung are set to release Samsung Pay later too.
I use my debit card a lot for contactless payments and whilst I'll be giving Android Pay a try I'm not sure it will be quicker or easier to use.
Keep in mind that The Telegraph are referring to industry sources and nothing official from anyone official.
