Google Wallet Usage Doubles In A Month; Have You Tried It Yet?


It wasn’t that long ago when we were seriously doubting Google Wallet’s long-term chances for success. After all, it seemed like even the limited carrier support it had been seeing might be about to disappear. However, right at the start of August Google announced that it had solved one of the biggest roadblocks towards using Wallet, opening up the service for payment with pretty much any credit card. We can’t say for sure if that’s responsible, but since then Google has seen a huge increase in Wallet usage.

Since that change was announced, Wallet usage is more than double what it had been back in July. While the vastly increased card support probably has a lot to do with that, it could also be a consequence of more and more of us finally getting devices that support Wallet; all those users who picked up a Nexus 7, for example, may finally be trying Wallet for the first time.

It’s still too early to say what effect the launch of Isis may have on Wallet’s recent success, but maybe the tide has finally started turning in Google’s favor.
