Google Expands Android Pay Network

Google Expands Android Pay Network

Google unveiled the mobile wallet back in 2011. Unfortunately it never really caught on. Apple did not release a competitor until 2014 and it started off slow. However, the service picked up some followers and expanded to 10 countries last year. Google revamped their payments app releasing Android Pay in 2015. Like Apple Pay, the service started off slow but is building momentum. The company just announced an increase to their service that provides support for Bank of America, USAA, Discover, and several other financial institutions.
