Google Introduces New and Improved Wallet App

Google Introduces New and Improved Wallet App

When Google Wallet first started off it had a rough time getting support. Various carriers (cough, Verizon, cough) didn’t allow it for no specific reason. It only worked on a select few devices. In summary it was just a big mess. Until now it hasn’t gotten much better. 

Today, however, Google is looking to change everything when it comes to Wallet. It’s rolling out v2.0 of the app that brings a slew of new features, as well as making it available for basically all Android phones running Gingerbread (2.3) and higher. With the new app, you’ll be able to send money to other Wallet users in the US, a feature which is free to use with a bank account. However, there are small fees associated with sending money using credit or debit cards. The updated app will also show you local offers, as well as track all of your purchase activities in one place when you pay by using the app.

Google says the update will be “rolling out” this week in the U.S.
