Google Wallet, which launched at I/O 2022 in May, has been upgraded from the previous Google Pay app (featuring the colorful G and Pay). Along with being available for Android and Wear OS devices, there are three main selling points: Convenient, Helpful, Safe, and Private.
You can rely on Google Wallet for easy and secure payments. You can also use it for boarding flights, going to movies, or anything else- all without needing a card at hand. Accessing it with only your phone means that you will never have to worry about misplacing anything ever again!
If you sideloaded this morning, then another (small) update is available now. It will take a few moments for the new Quick Settings Tile and Lock Screen Shortcut to appear. Google Wallet still supports payment methods for wearable devices as it did before.
Google plans to replace your physical wallet with an app. They hope to include credit and debit cards, transit tickets, boarding passes for airplanes, loyalty card programs, and even immunization records. On top of this, they will also provide virtual vehicle keys and student IDs to people who request them.
The title of this app is just what it does – Wallet. The app offers a dynamic color scheme, giving you an easy way to show off all your tap-to-pay cards in one place.
After the latest update, when you look at your quick settings menu, it will say ‘Wallet’, along with a symbol next to it which can be seen on the lock screen too!
Touching the Wallet Settings option leads you to the following pages: Payments Profile, Gmail Passes, and your Purchases (Transaction Information).
In the near future, Google Wallet may be able to store mobile driver’s licenses and state IDs, as well as hotel keys and business badges.
The latest version of Google Pay (v2.150.460235810) is not yet available publicly but is available for installation using APK Mirror at this time.
