In what will probably remain its last refresh for this year, this digital wallet platform developed by Google receives support for no less than 31 new banks and credit unions in the US.
Codrut Nistor,

Google's Android Pay has been around since September 2015, offering similar functionality to the contactless payment systems already in use across the world, but also providing two-factor authentication. Android Pay uses NFC to transmit credit card information and works with devices that run at least Android 4.4 KitKat.

Although Chase is still not on the list, Android Pay now supports virtually all major banks and credit unions in the US. The list of the most recently added banks and credit unions includes the following: Allegacy Federal Credit Union, Bank of Walterboro, Canyon State Credit Union, Country Club Bank, Diversified Members Credit Union, Firefly Federal Credit Union, Jackson Community Federal Credit Union, Marine Bank & Trust, NCMIC Finance Corporation, Platte Valley Bank of Missouri, State Bank & Trust Company, The Fauquier Bank, USC Credit Union, Washington Trust Bank, and a few others.

Android Pay should now work with cards issued by all the 31 newly supported banks and credit unions already, but it is also possible for some to require a few days to have everything running smoothly.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
