Android Pay Gets Deeper Integration With Some Mobile Banking Apps

Android Pay Gets Deeper Integration With Some Mobile Banking Apps

But the good news is that Google expressly mentioned Android Pay support will soon be coming to additional mobile banking apps.

Mobile apps of banks such as USAA, Bank of New Zealand, Discover, mBank, and Bank of America will make this feature available in them. The latest one is that you can now integrate selected mobile banking apps to the system to make it easier to use it both in brick and mortar and online stores. Previously, you had to download the Pay mobile app through Google Play Store in order to use the features.

This collaboration with banks expands Android Pay's capabilities as an open platform.

Android Pay is Google's answer to Apple Pay and other such mobile payment solutions and it has been gradually improving its offering. Also, the users can manage their bank card choices by using the app of their bank, but it's limited to that particular bank card. With multi-user support a person can have a love one or family member activate Assistant. Since you have their respective apps installed on your smartphone, all you have to do is add your cards or account to your Android Pay from within the banking apps themselves. This new Android Pay integration could go a long way toward increasing its reach and adoption. If this catches on then we could see this adopted by a large number of banks and this would be great for the longevity of Android Pay going forward.

In the U.S., Bank of America, USAA, and Discover are among the first to offer this native functionality.
