With Westpac finally on board as the latest Australian financial institution to support Android Pay, Google updated the list of Australian Banks who support Android Pay. However there was more in that list than just Westpac, some old “coming soon” friends made a reappearance after being take off the list a few months back.
As of today the following banks are once again “coming soon”:
- Bank of Melbourne
- Bank SA
- Family First Credit Union
- St George Bank
Those of you with keen eyes will note that Bank of Melbourne, Bank SA and St George Bank are all Westpac subsidiaries, so their return to the coming soon list probably isn’t all that surprising; St George have even confirmed they’re working on Android Pay, there’s just no concrete timeframe.
We’re not sure why Google took down the list originally, we don’t know why they’ve put it back up today, however, if you’re with one of these 5 institutions you’re a lot close to Android Pay than many people with other Big Australian Banks.
It’s never too late to swap banks and start enjoying the freedom and fun of Android Pay!
