    Just last week, there were reports that Android Pay's UK launch is imminent. And earlier today, the mobile payments service actually started rolling out in the country, with the official Android Twitter account saying, "Download #AndroidPay today from @GooglePlay. Now available in the UK."

    However, the joy was short-lived as a follow-up tweet from the same account effectively confirmed that the launch has been withdrawn:

    While there was no word on exactly why the launch was pulled, the tweet does suggest that someone at Google jumped the gun and pressed the launch button.

    It's worth mentioning that Google has already announced a list of banks whose credit and debit cards will be supported by Android Pay in the UK. What's more, some businesses have even started advertising that they accept payments through the service.
