Android Pay Supports 39 More U.S. Banks & Credit Unions

Android Pay now supports 39 more U.S. banks and credit unions as Google continues to get the service up and running for customers of various banking establishments that weren't previously able to take advantage of the growing mobile payment platform. Google tends to add support for new banks to Android Pay about once a month, at least for the U.S., as they added 5 new banks back in the middle of April, specifically April 18th, so this month they're a couple of days ahead of schedule based on that time frame of release.

That being said the most recent time they actually added support for new banks was just last week, as Android Pay gained support for a total of 71 new banking establishments, which makes for a rather large amount of added banks and credit unions when you consider that they just added 39 more to the list as of today, bringing the total amount of new banks added to the list to over 100 in a month. Included in today's expanded support for the mobile payment platform is AimBank, Brand Banking Company, ChoiceOne Bank, Guardian CU, O Bee Credit Union, River Cities bank, and Workers Credit Union among many others. If you're bank wasn't supported before today you'll want to head to the Android Pay support website where Google lists off the complete set of banks and credit unions that now support the platform with credit and or debit cards.

Speaking of credit and debit cards, just because support for your bank may have been added it doesn't necessarily mean that your bank will support Android Pay for all the cards that they offer. If your bank is listed, you should still contact them regarding the payment platform and see if they support your card of choice, or you could simply try adding the card in that you wish to use and see if the app takes it as a form of payment, and if rejected then you'll know for sure. For the U.S., most of if not all of the major banks and credit unions are already supporting Android Pay so any more that added in the future are likely to be smaller and more regional banks and credit unions, which has mostly been the case for a little while now. If your bank wasn't added this time around, there's always next month.
