Google is trying to make money transfer easy for everyone. You can simply send money to anyone in your contact list without needing their email address. Sending money is a simple process, the recipient gets a text message with a secure link.
All they need is to enter their debit card information to get the money available in their bank account in minutes.
You would need to upgrade your Google Wallet app on Google Play or in the App Store which will be updated in the coming days. Google Wallet has been consistently evolving from the feedback given, including a lot of updates.
- Contacts you send money regularly will be shown first
- The Google Wallet app can be locked with a tap of a button.
- You can link a second bank account as well
This is a good initiative to provide better banking services to Google Wallet users.
