PSA: You can now add your Wells Fargo cards to Android Pay

Yesterday, Android Pay officially launched with eight total banks supported, across four payment networks: American Express, Discover, MasterCard and Visa. One of the most common banks was unfortunately left unavailable for those attempting to add cards to their Android Pay wallet yesterday, but now that bank — Wells Fargo — is officially supporting the new mobile payments service.

As per yesterday’s announcement, Wells Fargo would be coming “in the next few days.”

American Express, Bank of America, Discover, Navy Federal Credit Union, PNC, Regions Bank, USAA, and U.S. Bank. Wells Fargo will be available in the next few days, Capital One and Citi are coming soon, and we’re adding new banks all the time.

Now, as I can independently confirm myself, Wells Fargo cards can be added to Android Pay just fine.

Android Pay has fairly decent support across banks as well as retail locations that are taking the service, but there are some odd exclusions. For instance, Chase, which is one of the “Big Four” and has more than 5,100 branches and 16,100 ATMs nationwide, still doesn’t support Android Pay. Other banks, including Bancorp-backed Simple (which has confirmed its intentions on Twitter), as well as Citi and Capital One, are slated to be coming soon.

In case you aren’t aware, the Android Pay app is coming as an update to the already-existing Google Wallet app. You can grab the new version on the Play Store soon. Google Wallet, which no longer has support for tap-to-pay, can now be found on the Play Store as its own newly-redesigned app.

Here’s the full press release:

Simple for Android gets redesigned from the ground up in 2.0 update

If you haven’t heard of Simple, it’s definitely one of the most 2014-friendly banks out there. Known for its excellent mobile applications, the bank works just like any bank, but gives you a plethora features in both its mobile and web applications to make banking and tracking spending much easier. Today, the company is pushing version 2.0 of the app to Android and iOS users—and the latter will be especially happy because the app still hadn’t been updated to match the iOS 7 aesthetic until today.
