Android Pay has been making inroads into the banking arena, across both the United States and the United Kingdom, with a less-than-heralded addition of 44 banks to its roster of financial institutions that work with the payments platform.
Android Police reported on Tuesday (Sept. 20) that the service has, in the past several months, added a number of heavy hitters to its pantheon, with the addition of Chase, for instance, in the United States. The most recent list of additions encompassed 44 smaller institutions, with another as-yet-unnamed large U.K. bank to be announced soon.
Among the most recent names to be included, said the site, were credit unions such as AltaOne Federal Credit Union and Acadia Federal Credit Union, to name a few. The site also noted that TSB, based in the U.K., also works with Android Pay. That latest entrant follows the news earlier this month that Royal Bank of Scotland, Natwest, Santander and Ulster Bank have signed on with Android Pay.
