Android Pay welcomes support for 30 new US banks; Capital One included
In the world of mobile payment platforms, Android Pay is one of the biggest names out there. Although it may not be as powerful as Samsung Pay on the Galaxy line with its inclusion of MST support, it continues to be the go-to solution for NFC payments for all compatible Android devices. Google released a new update today to the platform that adds 30 additional banks in the United States that now support the service, and among these, Capital One is easily the most notable inclusion. It was announced about a week ago that Capital One would finally be included with Android Pay, but it's nice to finally have support for the bank if you happen to do business there.

In addition to Capital One, the other included banks are a lot lesser-known and most likely community-based. However, no matter how big or small a bank is, getting more and more support is always a good thing. The full list of the new additions is as follows -

  1. Bank Independent
  2. Bank of Rantoul
  3. Bank of the Pacific
  4. Capital One
  5. Citizens Savings Bank
  6. Colony Bank
  7. Community Bank
  8. Denver Fire Department FCU
  9. Elmira Savings Bank
  10. Federal Savings Bank
  11. First Security Bank and Trust
  12. Five Points Bank
  13. Generations Community FCU
  14. Great River FCU
  15. HAPO Community Credit Union
  16. Impact Bank
  17. Kitsap Bank
  18. Kleberg Bank
  19. Midcoast FCU
  20. Monona State Bank
  21. Novation Credit Union
  22. Palmetto Health Credit Union
  23. Pinnacle Bank
  24. Popular Community Bank
  25. Red Rocks Credit Union

  27. Seaside National Bank & Trust
  28. Shell FCU
  29. TheBANK of Edwardsville
  30. TIAA-CREF Trust Company, FSB

Support for all of these banks should now be live in the Android Pay app, so if you're a Capital One customer or bank at any of the other institutions on this list, be sure to hop on the app and give it a shot!
