    Can now use AMEX with Android Pay 11th Jul 17 at 5:15 PM
    I just logged into my AMEX account this afternoon, and got notice that this could now be used with Android Pay

    Previously this wasn't available, and you had to use AMEX's own app to pay by contactless.

    I added my card just now with no problems.

    Great news! I always found the Amex app a bit hit and miss.

    Not surprising they gave in - there was a crazy amount of pressure from their customers

    Hurrah - the amex app failed the first time I tried to use it, and I immediately switched back to another card instead. Will get set up with the amex now

    Just need barclaycard to come to their senses too and join the android pay party!
