PNC Bank officially announces support for Microsoft Wallet; still no support from Chase

PNC Bank announced its support for Microsoft Wallet today. The company joins a list of six other banks that currently support Windows 10 Mobile's tap-to-pay solution.

Of course, support for the bank - as well as other new additions, such as US Bank - have been around for a couple weeks, as we noted in our review of the Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update. The full list of supported banks includes Bank of America, First Tech Federal Credit Union, Virginia Credit Union, People's United Bank, US Bank, PNC Bank, and BECU. Chase and Fifth Third Bank are listed as "coming soon".

Indeed, along with US Bank, Chase and Fifth Third Bank have been listed as "coming soon" since Microsoft's mobile payment service launched almost two months ago. Chase is certainly one of the largest banks on the list, and it's highly anticipated by Windows 10 Mobile users.

It would seem that not much has been done in those two months, adding only two banks (one of which was promised) and support for zero devices. The list of Windows phones that can use the service stands at the Lumia 650, 950, and 950 XL.

Of course, the lack of new support could have something to do with the fact that the service is still for Insiders only. Microsoft decided not to update Windows phones to the Anniversary Update on August 2 as it had promised, so perhaps we can expect better Wallet support when it finally does.
