Android Pay is about to work in many, many more places. As promised, Google is bringing Android Pay to the web. If you use Chrome to shop at online stores like 1-800-Flowers and Groupon, you can soon rely on Android's official mobile payment system to check out faster and more securely than usual (it doesn't share account info with stores, for one thing). Also, you may want to get in the habit of using Android Pay if you're fond of ridesharing. It's the first mobile wallet to tie into Uber's Payment Rewards program, giving you discounts when you use Android Pay. Uber is marking the occasion with a US promo that gives travelers half of 10 of their rides when they use Android Pay with the service.

This latest expansion also adds some much-needed support for major banks. Americans can finally use Chase's numerous Visa cards with Android Pay, while British users will get to add Santander or TSB cards in the "coming weeks." Google's tap-to-pay tech still has a limited reach at this stage (just ask anyone outside of the US and UK), but it's definitely growing.
