Android Pay gets support for 40 new banks and credit unions

Android Pay January 2017 update brings support for 40 new banks and credit unions
Android Pay
This new update expands the reach of Google's mobile payment system to BMO Harris Bank N.A. and 39 other banks and credit unions, but still leaves a few bigger names like Simple Bank out.

Google continues to expand its mobile payment system by adding support for a new group of banks and credit unions. Potential Android Pay users who were waiting to see Chase support added got their wish fulfilled back in late 2016, and now the time has come for BMO Harris Bank N.A. be included as well.

Next to BMO Harris Bank N.A., there have been added no less than 39 new banks and credit unions to Android Pay. The list also includes the following: Advantage One Federal Credit Union, Bank of Central Florida, Century Bank, FedEx Employees Credit Association, First Credit Union, Jefferson Financial Federal Credit Union, Merchants and Marine Bank, Origin Bank, Patriot Bank N.A., St. Mary’s Credit Union, Teachers Credit Union, TruPoint Bank, Utah First Federal Credit Union, Velocity Credit Union, Whiting Refinery FCU, and more.

The entire list of banks and credit unions supported by Android Pay can be found on this official webpage. One of the few larger banks that is not supported yet but should be added in the future is Simple Bank, so its customers might have to wait a few more months until being able to use Android Pay.

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.
