Google Pay Expands Its Reach Adding Support For Seventeen New Banks

Posted by at 5:21 pm on January 18, 2019

Over the past few months alone, Google Pay, the Android-compatible digital wallet platform has expanded to nearly 70 new banks in three different waves stateside. Believe it or not, it’s already time for a fourth, as an extra 17 US financial institutions have been added to the official support list so far this month.

While the mobile payment service still has a long way to go before achieving universal global coverage and popularity, the company’s continuous US expansion efforts since the 2015 release of Android Pay have brought the rebranded app incredibly close to ubiquity in one of the world’s largest smartphone markets.

The platform’s greatest advantage over rivals Apple Pay and Samsung Pay is support for phones from a wide range of vendors (running Android 5.0 and above), although in order to actually use the app in a physical store, you also need the respective retailer to have embraced NFC technology.

The 17 latest institutions added are listed as follows:

• Axiom Bank
• BankVista
• Dedham Savings
• First Liberty National Bank
• First National Bank of Hereford
• FNB Oxford Bank
• Kearny Bank
• MidSouth Bank (Salt Lake City,UT)
• Nebraskaland National Bank
• North Country Saving Bank
• Optum Bank
• Red River Bank
• Texstar National Bank
• Two River Community Bank
• Valley Credit Union
• Wakefield Co-Operative Bank
• Washington Savings Bank (Lowell,MA)
