Google updates Wallet and Inbox Android apps
We know from experience now that when Google decides to go big, it goes big. The same holds true for its app update days. Early this morning, we were hearing word of a major update to Hangouts, and then hours later we learned about a major Android Wear revision for Lollipop. We’re happy to report that those two things aren’t all, and that the Google app updates continue with these Wallet and Inbox updates we’re now filling you in on.
The Google Wallet update is meant as an easier way to manage gift and loyalty cards in one central location. It comes in at version 8.0, and a download link is available through the Droid Life source link if you were interested – Google’s staged rollouts may not have got to you just yet.
Second, the Inbox app is also receiving an update. There doesn’t appear to be much new, and Google doesn’t exactly help with its ways of updating changelogs at a snail’s pace, but the same download link applies as with Wallet.
Finally, if you wanted the latest Android Wear update, there’s a download link for that available now too. It’s likely meant as a preparatory companion app update for better support with Android Wear’s Lollipop rendition.
