American express and Android Pay

Has anybody with an American Express credit card successfully added the card to the app Android Pay?

I got an email from Amex saying they were now working with them but every time I try to add the card it keeps getting declined. Android pay do have the Amex logo on there app too.

Rang Amex up and they said they've not received any notification from them and it might be because of the different email ids I've used... Today I checked my amex transactions and noticed 4 pending attempts to Google services. Rang Amex again and she said that they were gonna work with them but they've basically backed out of the deal... they're still looking into it and it'll be early next year.

Not sure I trust Amex customer service since they've said got two different stories...

so anybody got the Amex card working on Android Pay? If yes did you have any problems?

Amex doesn't work directly with android pay, they have their own NFC payment process called Amex pay built in to their app.
This has to be set as default NFC payment method on the phone (disabling android pay).
I have both set up on my phone and switch between them when I want to pay with Amex.
