New Google Wallet app pops up in preparation for Android Pay
September 16, less than a week from today, is when Android Pay is supposed to go live, according to the latest rumors we heard on September 4. The information allegedly came from Verizon through unofficial channels, and the fact that Mountain View has a new Google Wallet app ready in the Play Store is a clear indication that the rumors were (at least) close to reality.
You will not be limited to paying in stores with the new Google Wallet app; instead, you’ll be able to send (and receive money) to people in the US via email (apparently, with no fees), manage your Wallet card, deposit and withdraw cash. The new app, which has a slightly different icon and a new color theme, will not overwrite your current Wallet app, which might (or might not) become Android Pay as soon as the offering officially debuts. You can find the new Google Wallet app at the source link below, and, while it appears to be compatible with all phones, it might only be available in the US.
