PSA: Wells Fargo cards now work with Android Pay on Android Wear

Android Pay finally debuted on the wrist with Android Wear 2.0, and it’s currently limited to the LG Watch Sport, this functionality is going to expand to other upcoming watches such as the soon-to-be-announced Huawei Watch 2. One annoyance with it, though, is that not all cards work. As noted earlier this month, cards from CITI Bank and Wells Fargo don’t work with Pay on Wear, but we’re pleased to report that the latter now does…

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:

Spotify app to offer 30 mins of ad-free listening if you watch a 15-30 second video ad first

Spotify currently offers you a choice: pay ten bucks a month to listen without ads, or listen for free but have your music interrupted by audio ads. Those using the Android or iOS app will be offered a third option later this year: watch a 15-30 second video ad in return for 30 minutes of ad-free listening.

Known as Sponsored Sessions, the idea is that advertisers get the ability to run video ads for the first time, while the experience is made relatively painless for consumers by guaranteeing 30 minutes of uninterrupted listening afterwards.

Spotify began pitching the option to advertisers back in June, and Ad Age reports that a number of major advertisers have now signed-up.

Spotify will start testing the video ads in the fourth quarter with a limited number of brands and plans to extend them to all advertisers in the first quarter of 2015.

Coca-Cola, Ford, McDonald’s and Universal Pictures have signed on as the ads’ first global buyers. Kraft Foods, Target and Wells Fargo will be the U.S.-only launch advertisers.

The Spotify Music app is a free download from the Google play store.
