Android Pay has become one of the better-known parts of the Android ecosystem over the past year, along with the Play Store and other essential services such as the Google Play Store, and key apps like YouTube and Gmail. For Android Pay, however, it appears as if work is never done, as Google keep on adding more and more banks, credit unions and card issuers to the app. Not too long ago, Capital One customers got access to Android Pay, and they also rolled out support to a further 44 banks. Now, they're adding a further 30 to the ever-growing number of banks and supported cards.
Given the size of the United States and the massive amount of regional banks and credit unions, the fact that Googles still appears pretty busy adding cards and such to the service shouldn't be all that surprising, really. These 30 new banks and credit unions all appear to be more regional, smaller affairs, but the standouts here are Northern United Federal Credit Union, the Providence Bank, the Farmers State Union and the American 1 Credit Union. The full list of the 30 newly-added banks as well as the comprehensive list of banks that are supported by Android Pay can be found at the source link below. The list has become pretty comprehensive by this point, with the majority of major banks and cards supported, such as Capital One, Chase Bank and Wells Fargo to name just a few. If you've yet to give Android Pay a try, all you need to do is download it from the Play Store and input your card, if your bank or credit union support it, you should be able to carry on with the setup with no issues.
For Google, this is perhaps another step to making sure that Android Pay is a lot more popular, and with the new landing page that they launched earlier this week, they certainly seem to be looking to end Android Pay's year on a high. With Samsung Pay coming under fire for yet another crisis, and it only being available on a handful of Galaxy devices, Google's payments solution could become a big force next year.
