Google Wallet is set to replace the Google Pay app starting today, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal. Google Wallet will be available on Android and Wear OS in Hungary, and will allow users to save and access, for example, debit and credit cards, gift cards, boarding passes, and tickets for concerts and other events, all from a single application.
In addition, Google Wallet can be linked to other Google apps and services as well. Digital boarding passes that arrive in Gmail, for example, can be added to Google Wallet very quickly, making them easy to access.
The app offers a range of settings to ensure that user data is protected. For example, personal documents saved in Google Wallet will not be shared with other Google applications without the user's consent. And if a user loses or has their phone stolen, they can use the 'Find Device' feature to locate or lock the device or wipe its entire content.
Google is rolling out Google Wallet to all users in the next few days. For users with automatic updates enabled, the Google Pay app will be updated. Users without automatic updates will need to manually update the app from the Google Play Store to access Google Wallet, according to the press release.
