Android Pay now comes integrated with 5 major mobile banking apps

Apr 15, 2017, 05:39

Google's Android app looks like a tough competitor to Apple Pay and other similar mobile payment platforms.

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.

You no longer have to use Google's official app if you want to get started with Android Pay's tap-to-buy features.

In some good news coming out of Google this week, Google just announced that Android Pay is now going to be integrated into some mobile banking apps.

This is published unedited from the IANS feed.

Personally, compared to Samsung Pay, I've never found Android Pay to be particularly useful, with very limited support in reality. Android Pay touts similar ease of use for in-app and mobile web transactions as well.

While Google's mobile paying service is primary used to make contactless payments, it can also be used to pay online or on websites that support the service. As Google puts it, "You can manage bank card choices, like selecting your default payment card or deactivating a card on your phone". Google is clearly betting that the more open nature of Android Pay will give it a larger footprint, Engadget said.

As for the software itself, Family Link lets parents set some basic limits on how their child can use their Android phone. Of course, for those unsupported banks, the traditional method still applies. "We're continuing to integrate with additional mobile banking apps". Users can link the app to credit or debit cards from multiple major banks in the USA and nine other countries.
