Google extends Android Pay usage to Mobile banking Apps

"After completing setup, you can use your phone to tap and pay at millions of stores and wherever you see the Android Pay button in your favourite apps and on the mobile web".

Google's Android app looks like a tough competitor to Apple Pay and other similar mobile payment platforms. Today Google has announced more progress in this area as it brings Android Pay functionality to several mobile banking applications...

As an added bonus, through "select banking apps", you can get the experience and capabilities of Android Pay, like selecting your default card or deactivating one from your phone.

You won't need to have Android Pay downloaded on your device to use Android Pay.

This is published unedited from the IANS feed. Since you have their respective apps installed on your smartphone, all you have to do is add your cards or account to your Android Pay from within the banking apps themselves. Moving forward, this section will allow you to quickly add your credit and debit cards to Android Pay, and use the option whenever feasible. So, users who have not used Android Pay will now use it at least once. But after failing to gain much traction with it, Google introduced Android Pay in 2015.

This year it is expected to launch in South Korea and Russian Federation. This new Android Pay integration could go a long way toward increasing its reach and adoption. Of course, for those unsupported banks, the traditional method still applies. This feature may work differently compared to other mobile bank apps.
