Google Wallet updated, now accepts all major debit and credit cards
Shit. You read that title right, early this morning the play store started automatically updated my Wallet app on my phone — to version 1.5-R75-v6. Curiously I opened the store to check the changelog and much to my surprise it was MAJOR. Wallet has now met the cloud.
Wanna see exactly what I read? Here you go:
What’s in this version:
Wallet, meet cloud.
- The new Google Wallet app supports any credit or debit card — Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover. These cards are available for in-store purchases using a phone with the Google Wallet app, or for online purchases at participating merchants.
- If you lose your phone, you can disable your mobile wallet from the ‘Devices’ section of wallet.google.com/manage
So, not only has Google added new cards that can be linked to the Wallet app, but has also allowed you to control the content of the app through your computer, along with a new UI, and it looks like Google is definitely getting ready to compete with other competitors.
The next thing that needs to come from Google regarding this change is setting up more locations to use this technology, I can only eat so much McDonalds, get so much gas, and shop at so many CVS’ before I’m ready to expand.Plus, get more carriers to adopt it completely – not through some ridiculous workaround.
Anyways, go to the links below to get to the Play Store, which is recommended that way you can get automatic updates and forever have it on your device, or hit our mirror link to grab the APK.
Take that ISIS.
