Android Pay adds support for tons of new banks; is yours on the list?
Back in the good old days of Google Wallet, you were free to sign up with whatever card you chose. But when Google moved its tap-and-pay operation over to Android Pay last year, a lot of the service's inner working suddenly changed – and that included the new hurdle of needing to have your card-issuing bank on Google's approved list before you could get started with mobile payments. To its credit, Google's been working to add more institutions to its list of participating banks, and today we really see support start to explode, as Android Pay accepts cards for another four dozen banks.

The big winner in this round of additions are credit unions, and we've got lots of local and regional credit unions starting to give their members access to Android Pay.

Also among the list of newly supported institutions is Capital One, currently the eighth largest bank in the US.

Of course, while these new additions are fantastic to see, Android Pay is still missing support for some big-name banks, and that's going to continue to haunt Google's service until the company can put the needed deals in place to secure Android Pay access for those customers. We don't want that to detract too much from this week's big progress, but there's still a long way to go.
