The new Google Wallet is starting to appear on people’s phones

Google Wallet, the app to replace Google Pay in many countries (more on that in a moment), has started appearing on people’s phones. According to Google spokesperson Chaiti Sen, the company has “started rolling out Wallet for Android users in 39 countries,” and it will be available “to all users in the next few days.”

Google announced Wallet at its 2022 I/O event, offering it as an app to manage all your digital cards — not just for payments, like debit and credit cards (though it does hold them) ), but also your identity, status for digital representations of vaccinations, tickets, keys, and much more.

In most countries, Wallet will replace the current Google Pay app. ,9to5google reports that it is currently rolling out as an update to Google Pay.) However, Google said that users in the US and Singapore will use Both Google Pay and Wallet. In those countries, Pay will be used as a way to send money to friends.

Google had several iterations of Wallet before it was launched today. In 2011, it was an NFC payments app, and it evolved to include other payment features, such as peer-to-peer money transfer (at one point there was even a physical Google Wallet debit card). In 2018, Google combined it with Android Pay to form Google Pay. Now — in most places, at least — that app is turning back into a wallet. It’s another major change in a long line of shake-ups for Google’s payment apps, but hopefully it will make it easier to store digital cards and pay from your Android phone.
