In the few short years that Android Pay has been around, it’s been adding banks and credit unions at a rapid pace. Last week we told you that it added another 24 institutions and brought the total number up to 996. And now it’s time to break out the party hats and confetti because it just passed 1,000! Today, Google updated the support page for Android Pay with 16 more financial institutions. That pushes the total up to 1,012.
The updated list now includes the following banks and credit unions:
- Chevron Federal Credit Union
- Collins State Bank
- Diebold Federal Credit Union
- DuGood Federal Credit Union
- First Federal Bank
- First State Bank of Mendota
- Hawthorn Bank
- Litchfield National Bank
- Pentagon Federal Credit Union
- People’s Choice Federal Credit Union
- Peoples Bank
- Progressive Savings Bank
- Sidney Federal Credit Union
- TBK Bank
- Vacationland Federal Credit Union
- Washington Financial Bank
It seems that here in the US it’s harder to find a bank that doesn’t support Android Pay than ones that do. That’s a great development for contactless payments, but it isn’t the case in the rest of the world. Android Pay has rolled out to UK, Canada, Ireland, Poland, Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Belgium, Japan, Russia, and New Zealand, but not every bank is on board. In the UK, the biggest holdout might be Barclays in the UK. The massive bank has been pushing its own payment system while other big names like RBC and TD Bank in Canada support Apple Pay but not Android Pay.
