Android Pay is adding support for another major bank today.
Google says that Android Pay now supports Chase. That includes Chase Visa cards like Freedom, Slate, Sapphire, United Mileage Explorer, and Hyatt Credit Card. Android Pay users with Chase cards will get the same benefits and protections when using Android Pay that they’d normally receive.
Google also notes that Android Pay will soon support Santander and TSB in the U.K. Customers of those banks will be able to use Android Pay in the coming weeks.
Another notable addition to Android Pay is support for new loyalty programs. Dunkin’ Donus and Chili’s will be integrating support for their loyalty programs with Android Pay in the coming months, and Uber customers can now use their Payment Rewards program to use discounts with their Android Phone. And today through October 15, Android Pay users can get 50 percent off 10 Uber rides.
Finally, Google is adding support for Android Pay to mobile Chrome. This feature will let you use Android Pay to make purchases at websites like Groupon.com and 1-800-Flowers.com, with “many more” sites to be added.
The new features announced by Google today are big for Android Pay. Chase is a major bank, and so even though it took a while for Chase to finally be supported by Android Pay, it’s great to finally see support going live. Then there’s Android Pay support on the mobile web, which makes it fast and easy to make purchases on the web while also keeping your card info secure.
