Chase Bank chooses Android Pay for payments
It’s expansion time for Android as it reveals that US-based Chase Bank customers can now add their eligible Chase Visa cards to Android Pay.
The cards include Freedom, Slate, Sapphire, United Mileage Explorer and Hyatt Credit Card.
On top of this American development, in the UK, Android says Santander and TSB customers “will soon be able” to add their cards to Android Pay. This rollout will start over the coming weeks.
These are the Androids you’re looking for
It’s been a pretty good year for Android Pay.
Australia and New Zealand-based banking group, ANZ, was the first bank to launch Android Pay in Australia.
Recently, Android Pay arrived in the UK. Retailers like Boots, Waitrose and Starbucks are already onboard, and so is Transport for London (i.e. underground, buses and trains).
It also launched in Singapore, making it the first country in Asia to get the system. Singapore was chosen as the third market worldwide after the US and UK due to the number of mobile phone users and highly developed infrastructure.
However, not everyone has declared their undying love for Android Pay. Barclays launched its own mobile contactless on Android, and confirmed it will not be joining Android Pay.
