Google Pay adds support for two popular prepaid cards in Japan

Thursday, May 24th, 2018

As Google Pay continues to add support for American financial institutions at an almost silly pace, the service is building international support a little more slowly. The mobile payments platform took another baby step today: Google Pay now supports Suica and Waon, two popular Japanese e-money cards. The two new additions are widely used in the country, and Suica on Google Pay can be used to pay for transit in many locations.

Starbucks beats out Apple, Google, and Samsung for most popular mobile payments platform

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2018

The Starbucks app allows customers to pay for their caffeine fix and earn rewards points for subsequent coffee runs without using cash or a card. It only works at Starbucks, obviously. Despite the fact that payments through Google Pay and Apple Pay are now accepted at more than half of US merchants (and more than 80 percent take Samsung Pay), the Starbucks app is currently the most popular mobile payments platform—and it's projected to stay that way.

Google Pay just keeps building support. Its latest batch of 176 (yes, one hundred and seventy-six) new US institutions includes some real heavy-hitters like the University of Michigan Credit Union, the Bankers' Bank of Kansas, and nine—count 'em, nine—miscellaneous First National Banks.

The addition of these new banks comes after 61 (plus three card types) were added in March. The full, long list of this lot of Google Pay's newly-supported institutions can be found below.

Confirmed: Google Pay works on Android P DP2, but only if you don’t unlock the bootloader

Wednesday, May 9th, 2018

NFC payments on Android used to be very much a free for all, but the company increasingly clamped down as Android Pay (and now Google Pay) rolled out. When a device doesn't pass SafetyNet because of modifications or even an unlocked bootloader, you can't make NFC payments. That was a problem with the first Android P developer preview, but the newly released DP2 does allow you to use Google Pay. Well, in some instances.

Boarding passes on Google Pay are now live, at least for Southwest Airlines

Monday, May 7th, 2018

Since Google rebranded Android Pay as Google Pay, the app has seen a number of useful changes to bring it in line with competing services and make it more useful. The addition of transit passes will be great for users who have season tickets and don't want to use a separate payment card when they travel, for example. Passbook on iOS is always something I've been envious of, but we recently learned that boarding passes and event tickets would be coming to Google Pay in much the same vein.

Thursday, May 3rd, 2018

The move from Android Pay, Google Wallet, and Pay with Google to Google Pay hasn't been completely smooth sailing, but the Mountain View giant is slowly getting its footing and transitioning everything from the old brandings to the new one. The latest to make the switch are web payments done either on desktop or on iOS.

Google is starting to roll out Pay on the web for iPhone, iPad, and desktop users so you should start seeing it when you're trying to make a payment on a supported site, regardless of the browser or device you're using.

Google Pay v1.57 prepares support for airline boarding passes and event tickets, Suica and WAON payment cards, and more [APK Teardown]

Sunday, April 22nd, 2018

It wasn't that long ago that Google Pay (and its previous names) was solely focused on making purchases in a store or paying on the spot to get onto subways...and sometimes sending money to friends. Google recently added support for one-time transit tickets on the Las Vegas Monorail and prepaid commuter cards with the TriMet in Portland, Oregon, but things are about to get a lot more interesting thanks to the latest update.
