Google's Android Pay adds banks, makes spending money easy

Then you're in luck, along with three other bank brand customers, as Android Pay integration has been directly injected into these partner banking applications. For the first time, Android Pay is said to be incorporated within major mobile bank applications.

Increasing the adaption of Android Pay is the prime target of Google as it tries to relinquish the contact less Apple Pay.

If you are a customer of Bank of America, Bank of New Zealand, Discover, mBank, or USAA, you can now easily add cards to Android Pay right from your mobile banking app with a simple click. If your bank app doesn't yet support Android Pay, you can always download Google's official app via Play Store.

After the card has been added within the bank's app, Android Pay works as usual. Juniper Research said that the Apple Pay has the user base of almost double the number it had past year and is expecting to reach 86 million by the end of 2017. Samsung Pay and Android are still n their growing phase and will only reach the count of 34 million and 24 million, respectively, by the end of 2017.

That means you're able to tap to pay at checkout at the millions of stores offering the supported NFC-enabled terminals, says Google.

You can also keep track of each and every transaction by using the notification feature. All you have to do is select your default payment card.

Now, Google has announced that "select mobile banking apps" will soon have some of Android Pay's capabilities built-in.

In a blog post by the company, it tells about its new alliance along with the fact that the customers of all these banks will be able to regulate their bank card choices.
