Bank of America's Android app has allowed fingerprint sign-ins since September 2015, or so it would like you to think. Support seems to have been limited to Samsung's fingerprint sensor and didn't work on the Nexus 5X or 6P with their Nexus Imprint. Reviewers on the Play Store complained about that and the developers finally updated the app to fix the issue.

The new version of the Bank of America app seems to support Android's native fingerprint APIs that were introduced in Marshmallow, and thus the Nexus Imprint sensor on Nexus devices. Artem successfully tested it on his Nexus 6P and several Play Store commenters are reporting it as working now. There are a few other features in the changelog below, but let's face it, the part you care about is the fingerprint sign-in. Here are the screenshots of it in action, followed by the full changelog and Play Store link.
