Google adds more U.S banks support to Android Pay [Update]

Google expands Android Pay reach by adding new banks support

Recently we told you that Google partnered with Visa and MasterCard in order to expand the reach of Android Pay.

It seems that Google is actively working to make its mobile website transaction app more useful. This week the tech giant announced it has added more US based and credit unions support to Android Pay. Check out the complete list below:

  • Alpine Bank
  • Anheuser Busch Employees CU
  • Bristol County Savings Bank
  • Capital One
  • CinFed Credit Union
  • City & County CU
  • City National Bank
  • cPort Credit Union
  • Eaton Family Credit Union
  • First Flight FCU
  • First New York FCU
  • Fremont Bank
  • Georgia’s Own Credit Union
  • HomeTrust Bank
  • Hudson Valley Federal CU
  • LCNB National Bank
  • Leyden CU
  • Michigan Educational CU
  • Neighbors Credit Union
  • North Dallas Bank & Trust
  • Pacific Service Credit Union
  • Philadelphia FCU
  • Rainbow Federal Credit Union
  • Redwood Capital Bank
  • Seaboard Federal Credit Union
  • Seacoast Bank
  • SELCO Community Credit Union
  • Settlers Bank
  • ShareFax Credit Union
  • Siouxland FCU
  • Southside Bank
  • Texas First Bank
  • Three Rivers Federal Credit Union
  • United Community Bank
  • United Savings CU
  • University of Toledo FCU
  • WEOKIE Credit Union
  • York County FCU

As you can see one of the biggest banks in the US, Capital One is on the list, but we’re still waiting on an official confirmation from the bank.

Back in May, Google updated its Android Pay list to include Capital One, but it removed it from the list afterwards. Hopefully this time, Google’s announcement will be backed up by the bank itself.

Android Pay

It’s worth mentioning that Capital One has added support for rival Samsung Pay back in September, so it seems it’s only a matter of time before Android Pay will offer the same option.

Google is focusing quite a lot on Android Pay in recent days, so if you can’t find your bank in the above list you can be confident the company will add it in the next batch.

This form of tap-to-pay payment system is slowly gaining more traction with consumers, so it is expected to become even bigger once internationally availability slips into the picture.

Update: It seems Google has removed the list of supported banks. It might be just a glitch though and we’re going to see it back up soon.

    PayPal is not lettings its cards to be added to Android Pay, they’re just trying to monopolize the mobile payments.
