Google Pay continues its spread to several cities and countries—and that means more people can now access it. The latest we have on that front is that 21 more banks in the US have now been included to the ever-increasing list, and pretty soon we will lose count.

21 banks including the following have newly being added by Google. These banks include the following:

  1. Bay Atlantic FCU
  2. Canton Co-Operative Bank
  3. Down East Credit Union
  4. First Federal Bank & Trust
  5. First Pioneers FCU
  6. Fort Lee FCU
  7. Hillsboro Bank
  8. Hudson River Community CU
  9. Infirst Bank
  10. Insight Credit Union
  11. KBR Heritage FCU
  12. Lisbon Community FCU
  13. Meridia Community Federal Credit Union
  14. Morganton Savings Bank
  15. Mutual Credit Union
  16. National Bank of Coxsackie
  17. People Driven Credit Union
  18. Pioneer Bank & Trust (SD)
  19. The First State Bank
  20. Wahoo State Bank
  21. William Penn Bank

So, if you are a customer in one of the aforementioned banks, perhaps, you may want to take advantage of the convenience of the in-store contactless payments from Google Pay. Perhaps, you don’t have the app already installed on your phone because Google didn’t offer support for your favorite bank, then you can move over to the Play Store to download the latest version.

Just last year, Google added a couple of features to make Google Pay a one-stop payment app. Google Pay added peer-to-peer payments, boarding passes, tickets and even more.

The p2p payments feature along with online payments supports in all browsers and several other features were announced by Google during the 2018 Google I/O event. Google also brought support for tickets and boarding passes in the app’s APIs.

The p2p support at launch was only be available in select markets—the US and the UK. This is consistent with how Google launches its new products and features—a small rollout usually precedes a global rollout.

Just yesterday, we told you that Google Pay is reportedly working on incognito mode; a new APK teardown has revealed. That is probably the biggest change you would see in v2.94; but it is a pretty significant one at that.

Per Android Police, the incognito mode is being prepared for a future release. It could serve as a major turning point for the pay app as it would afford you the opportunity to make your payments in private without exposing your transaction history.

Incognito mode is an ideal feature when you want all your tracks covered—it simply makes shopping private. No one is too careful when it comes to protecting online activities, and the upcoming feature could very well be the icing on the cake.
