Although Android Pay is far less popular than Apple Pay or Samsung Pay, this mobile payment system has been receiving a lot of attention lately. Not long after getting support for the popular banking brand Chase, loyalty cards as well as Uber, this challenger gains support for no less than 44 US-based banks and credit unions.

Since virtually all major banks have been added so far, the update brings in a lot of local and smaller brands. The list is quite long, and it includes names like AltaOne Federal Credit Union, Army Aviation Center Federal Credit Union, BloomBank, Cincinnati Ohio Police FCU, Entrust Financial Credit Union, FNB Community Bank, Greenville Federal Credit Union, Hawaii Law Enforcement FCU, Moven, Surety Bank, Town & Country FCU, University of Iowa Community CU, Waldo State Bank, and more.

In addition to the US update mentioned above, Android Pay has just gained TSB support in the UK. Earlier this month, the service got support for Santander, NatWest, Royal Bank of Scotland, and Ulster Bank. The Android App pay can be obtained for free from the Google Play store, and using the service requires a supported handset with NFC connectivity.

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.
