More and more apps support Android 10's biometrics API, which means that they work with the Pixel 4's face unlock mechanism for authentication, saving you from typing in your password or PIN over and over again. One of the Big Four banks in the US is now getting ready to jump on the bandwagon for its app: Chase. After an initially extremely slow rollout, it seems that the feature is now in the hands of many more people.
Android 10 includes a biometrics API that enables in-app authentications with face unlock on the Pixel 4 — the old software hook for fingerprint readers doesn't work with the new mechanism. Luckily, more and more companies are finally adding support for the interface. American Express is getting ready to join the club following a beta update to its Amex app.
Banking apps are often the slowest to implement new features and stay with the times, but the Bank of America app is usually a lot better at it than others. Now the app has been updated to add a couple of neat features.
First is the ability to schedule appointments with your banker, which I honestly wish my bank offered as I always have to wait an hour to get something done. Second is a neat feature to open a new checking account (I didn't know you could do that in the US without a ton of paperwork and 10000 signatures, neat!).
