Android Pay now built into banking apps

Android Pay

Android Pay, Google’s mobile wallet tool, looks set for a major expansion, after the tech giant revealed plans to bring the service into official banking apps.

Google has inked deals with Bank of America, Discover, mBank, Bank of New Zealand and USAA to allow users to setup Android Pay from within their apps.

Until now, setting up Android Pay has involved going into Google’s official app and adding a card. This switch, though, means you only need to tap the ‘Add Card’ button in the banking app to get started.

Once you do, you’ll be able to pay by tapping your phone in stores with contactless terminals, or pay via apps which accept Android Pay.

While no UK banks are involved at launch, although it appears plans are afoot to bring them on board. In a blog post, Google said, “We’re continuing to integrate with additional mobile banking apps, so look for updates from your bank about this new feature.”
