Google Pay is already compatible with an impressive number of banks and banks and financial institutions across the world, but this doesn't mean the list can't grow. Indeed, since our last update, the list has been further expanded with 61 new partners across 19 countries
In India, Google Pay primarily revolves around sending money via UPI, the country's leading digital payment platform. It was only last year that the India-exclusive version of the app got support for debit and credit card payments over NFC. Now, Google is looking to further improve the mobile payment solution with NFC-initiated UPI payments.
Google's newest version of Pay takes the focus off of NFC transactions, but being able to cash out with your phone at the grocery store is still the best part of the app. If you've been waiting for your bank to add support for Google Pay, you might want to look again — 22 additional financial institutions have been added since earlier this month.
Google Pay already works with about 3,000 partners, but that doesn't hinder it from continuing to support more banks and credit unions. After adding 89 financial institutions to the list last month, the mobile payment service just added another 67 just in the US.

In the last couple of months, Google Pay has undergone a tremendous amount of transformation, both in terms of its looks and function. Google merged the international Pay app with its Indian counterpart (formerly called Tez) following the latter’s Flutter rewrite and it even got a new logo quite recently. But unlike most other Google services, the new GPay has so far lacked a proper dark mode, but that's finally making its way to the beta version of the app.
Google has flipped the switch on its new Google Pay app and site slightly ahead of schedule. Though a formal release is still scheduled for just a bit in the day, the Play Store listing for the new app has expanded to the US, and you can download it now.
