The new Google Wallet is beginning to show up on phones
Google Wallet, the app which will replace Google Pay in many countries , has begun to show up on people’s phones. consistent with Google spokesperson Chaiti Sen, the corporate has “started rolling out the Wallet to Android users in 39 countries,” and it’ll be available “to all users over the subsequent few days.”
Google announced Wallet at its 2022 I/O event, pitching it as an app to manage all of your digital cards — not just for payment, like debit and credit cards , except for digital representations of your identification, vaccination status, tickets, keys, and more also.
In most countries, Wallet is going to be replacing the current Google Pay app. (Google reports that it’s currently rolling out as an update to Google Pay.) However, Google said that users within the US and Singapore would use both Google Pay and Wallet. In those countries, Pay will stick around as how to send friends money.
Google’s had several iterations of Wallet that came before the one rolling out today. In 2011, it had been an NFC payment app, and it evolved to incorporate other payment features, like peer-to-peer money transfers (there was even a physical Google Wallet debit card at one point). Google combined it with Android Pay to make Google Pay.
Now — in most places, a minimum of — that app is starting to turn back into Wallet. It’s another big change during a long line of shake-ups for Google’s payment apps but hopefully, one that will make it easier to store digital cards and pay with your Android phone.
