Google's Android Pay ecosystem expanded by 11 additional card issues earlier this week, having added support for banks and credit unions across the United States, as evidenced by the company's recently updated support pages dedicated to the service. Consumers in Wisconsin who happen to be clients of either the Central Alliance Credit Union or UnitedOne Credit Union can now use Android Pay with cards issued by their financial institution of choice, as can residents of Massachusetts who use services of the Greenfield Savings Bank or Coastal Heritage Bank. One new entity from California now also supports Android Pay as the First Northern California Credit Union was listed by Google as being part of its mobile payment ecosystem, and the same applies to the Bankwell Bank from Connecticut, Home National Bank headquartered in Indiana, and New York-based Adirondack Regional Federal Credit Union. Finally, the latest Android Pay expansion wave encompasses the Sicily Island State Bank in Louisiana, Sauk Valley Bank and Trust from Illinois, and Cumberland Valley National Bank headquartered in Kentucky.

As is usually the case with new additions to the Android Pay platform, the latest card issuers who joined the growing service are situated in all parts of the United States, having been approved as part of Google's most recent integration efforts. The Mountain View, California-based company's official support pages don't specify if any of the recently added institutions are supporting Android Pay with all of their cards or only some of them, though the former is more likely to be the case. Anyone looking to make sure their card can be connected to the Android App is welcomed to try doing so or contact their bank or credit union for additional information.

The latest development marks the likely final expansion of Android Pay's list of supported entities in October, with 34 new institutions already joining the platform earlier this month. Alphabet's subsidiary also clarified that the majority of Synchrony cards still aren't supported by the service and gave no indication of when more of them may become compatible with the platform. Android Pay's international rollout isn't nearly as swift as its domestic one, though Google still managed to debut the service in a number of large countries like Spain over the course of this year.
