Android Pay now supports a lot of banks around the world, but Chase is the one big US names that has been strangely absent from this list, until next month it seems. According to a leaked document that apparently comes straight from a Chase employee, the bank will be supported by Google’s NFC payment system come early next month.
The document states that Chase consumer credit cards bearing Visa branding, along with business and consumer debit cards, and Chase Liquid cards will all be supported with Android pay from September 7th. That’s just a little over two weeks away.
The rest of the document just gives us details about Android pay that we already know, such as that Android Pay is only supported on devices with NFC running Android 4.4 KitKat or higher. With Chase on board, US customers looking to make use of NFC mobile payments have their pick of the Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and HSBC, to name just a few. You can see the full list of supported banking networks over on Google’s website.
This is certainly good news for Chase customers, but how many of you are using Android Pay regularly?
