Select Banking Apps Add Direct Integration With Android Pay

If you use one of a handful of banking apps very often and mobile payments less so, you may have more reason to hop onto Android Pay.

With this move, customers of Bank of America, USAA, Discover, BNZ (Bank of New Zealand), and mBank can find Android Pay support directly inside of their native mobile banking applications.

Android Pay is digital pay platform developed by Google that helps users to make payment with Android phones, tablets and watches. Google is continuing to integrate with additional mobile banking apps, so look for updates from your bank about this new feature.

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.

Google has been trying to make mobile payments work for some time now, just like several other companies such as Samsung and Apple. Even if you don't have the Android Pay app installed on your device, you can still access your virtual cards, change the default payment card, and deactivate any card you don't need. Moving forward, this section will allow you to quickly add your credit and debit cards to Android Pay, and use the option whenever feasible.

Android Pay is joining hands with many banks across the world. This new Android Pay integration could go a long way toward increasing its reach and adoption. At the time the company had noted that Android users in Belgium would be able to use Pay at more than 85,000 retail locations in the country including some of the biggest chains. For instance, you can't delete a Bank of America card from the Discover app, as you'd have to do it from the Bank of America app.
