Google Pay will continue to be the mobile payment platform of the American giant and will be integrated into Google Wallet.
A couple of months ago, in the framework of the Google I/O 2022the Mountain View company announced the new version of its digital wallet, Google Walletwhich arrived First of all, to the United States.
Well, now we can confirm, thanks to the specialized medium 9to5Googlethat Google Wallet is now available to everyonethus replacing Google Pay, which, in turn, replaced Android Pay.
Google Pay integrates with Google Wallet
Google Wallet has begun to reach users in more than 40 countries, among which are Spain, Portugal, France, Germany, Italy, United KingdomGreece, Belgium, Denmark, Czech Republic, Ireland, Switzerland, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, New ZealandTaiwan or the United Arab Emirates.
Google Wallet arrives as an update to Google Pay, whose version number is 2.150.460235810and, thus, once it is updated, when we open it, it will indicate that it is now called Google Wallet.
Google Wallet has a totally renewed interface, compatible with the dynamic themes of Material Youand much easier to use in which the payment cards are larger and appear in a carousel at the top.
right below these loyalty cards and gift cards appearwhich also have a larger size, and now are displayed in a single row and not in two as it happened in Google Pay. In this sense, we must emphasize that Google Wallet is prepared to also host boarding passes, vaccination passports, car or hotel keys, passports or driving licenses.
In the lower right corner of Google Wallet we find the button Add to Wallet through which we can add payment cards, transport cards, loyalty cards and gift cards to our digital wallet quickly and easily.
In addition, Google Wallet has removed the side menu with the three horizontal stripes icon and now To access the app settings we will have to click on our profile pictureas in many other apps from the American company.
With the arrival of Google Wallet, its predecessor, Google Pay, will not disappear completely, since will continue to be the mobile payment platform of the American companybut it will be integrated into Google’s new digital wallet, just as it happens on iPhones with Apple Pay and Apple Wallet or in the Samsung Galaxy with Samsung Pay and Samsung Wallet.
google-wallet is gradually reaching Google Play Store like a Google Pay updatebut if you still don’t have it available and you want to try it as soon as possible, you can also download it in APK format from this link.
