Google Unfolds A Brand New Wallet App for Android
Google today released a fully redesigned Google Wallet application for Android devices. Google Wallet is not an app for making mobile payments at retail. Google says Android Pay, which will power tap-and-go payments in stores, is set to arrive soon. The revised Google Wallet is meant to let people send money to one another easily via email address. The app supports money transfers between debit cards, bank accounts, and the Google Wallet balance. Users can control spending by placing limits on funds, or make sure Google Wallet always has cash through automatic deposits from checking/savings accounts. Google says the mobile banking app, which has a brand new user interface, is secure and protected. The Google Wallet app is best paired with the Google Wallet card, which is a debit card that draws from Google Wallet funds. Users can cash out their Google Wallet balance at any time. Google Wallet is free to download and use.
