Android Pay as a mobile payment system is a great app and feature to have at your disposal. That is, if your bank or credit union supports the service, and even then there is no guarantee that they'll support your specific type of card after they support the system. While Google can't do much about what cards are supported by specific banks or credit unions, they can and are continuously working to grow the list of which institutions support the platform for making payments from an Android-powered smartphone. Today, Google is expanding that list by introducing a handful of new banks and credit unions which now support Android Pay.
While Google wasn't as quick with adding to this support list when Android Pay was initially launched, they have picked up the pace quite a bit since then, and just to put things into perspective of how fast they seem to be moving, it's only been about 11 days since the last time they rolled out Android Pay support for more banks and credit unions. How many new banks are supported each time Google adds to the list is not always the same, as the last time saw 30 smaller banks gain support, while this time it seems Google has gotten support up and running for some larger institutions, and the total number of new banks and credit unions that now support the mobile payment platform is 38.
The list of banks and credit unions which have now been added to the support list include larger institutions like Capital One, while it also harbors a long list of smaller establishments like SELCO Community Credit Union, Neighbors Credit Union, Redwood Capital Bank, HomeTrust bank and quite a few others. In addition to adding support for more banks and credit unions in the U.S., Google is also continuously working to expand support for the mobile payment platform to other global regions, and just recently opened up the service to Hong Kong as of October 20th, which was the same day that Google last added support for more U.S. banks. If you don't see your bank on the list yet, there's still every chance that Google could end up adding it in the next batch. You can also always contact your bank or credit union and see if they know anything about adding support.
