Android Pay can now connect with select mobile banking apps

For example, you can not delete the Bank of New Zealand card from the Discover app, as you need to do the payment using Bank of America app.

With Android Pay, you can make purchases with your phone at stores like Best Buy, American Eagle, Dunkin Donuts, KFC, Subway, and Whole Foods as long as they have an NFC-enabled reader.

"This latest collaboration with banks expands Android Pay's capabilities as an open platform", Bhat noted.

Customers of the aforementioned banks that have teamed up with Google can use the banks's mobile app to easily add cards to Android Pay with just one click. Android Pay will also send users a notification after each successful transaction.

Mobile payments, which have been discussed for years, have been slow to take off.

Android Pay is joining hands with many banks across the world. You also will be able to make mobile payments using your regular banking app, which is pretty cool and saves a ton of time. Well, having it is an additional benefit as you can you can access your virtual cards, change the default payment card, and deactivate any card you don't need. Now, Google is pushing Android Pay even further as it is starting to be built into some of the mobile banking apps. This is useful for those who have Android Pay accounts but whose phones aren't supported yet. Of course, for those unsupported banks, the traditional method still applies. The company has now made a decision to integrated Android Pay deeply with some mobile banking apps and for this objective, it has teamed up with these banks. Users can link the app to credit or debit cards from multiple major banks in the US and nine other countries.
