Google has gradually been adding support for more banks and financial institutions to Android Pay so that the mobile payments service is more useful for the people who rely on it every day to make payments on the go. The company has now decided to integrated Android Pay deeply with some mobile banking apps and for this purpose, it has teamed up with these banks.
The idea behind offering this level of integration is to make it easier for Android Pay users and customers of these banks to use their cards with Google’s mobile payments service. It’s going to make life easier for them.
Customers of the Bank of America, Discover, mBank, USAA or Bank of New Zealand will now see an option to add their cards to Android Pay right from within the mobile banking apps of these banks.
The setup process is simple enough and once it’s all up and running, payments can then be made very easily. Android Pay is primarily used for making contactless payments but it can also be used to pay online on websites that support the service.
Select banking apps will even allow users to deactivate a card from their phone and select one as the default for Android Pay. Google says that support for more mobile banking apps will be added in the near future.
