Google Assistant Can Now Send Payments Via Google Pay
Google today updated Google Assistant on Android and iOS devices with the ability to send mobile payments. Google says people can easily send or request money from their contact list for free. Google Pay is required for the sender, and those who haven't yet set it up will be prompted to enroll. Recipients, however, do not need to have a Google Pay account. Google says funds are transferred almost instantaneously. Recipients who do have Google Pay will be alerted via email, text, or push notification so they can cash out. To use the tool, people need to say something like "Hey Google, send Jane $15 for lunch today." Google says this feature will eventually reach its Google Home smart speakers. There are no fees associated with using the service. Google Assistant is free to download from the Google Play Store and iTunes App Store.
