12 May Roll backwards: Google Pay becomes Google Wallet again
2018 is coming back. The Google Wallet is back. Instead of focusing on ePayment, Google wants to expand the scope of its own pay app again. The company announced this on Wednesday at the start of its Google I/O 2022 developer conference. In addition to the payment function, Google Wallet is to integrate electronic ID cards, driving licenses, digital tickets for events and flights or vaccination certificates in the future. Similar to Apple Wallet, Google Wallet should also be able to store room keys for hotels or key systems for cars. Pay is currently rather rudimentary and only manages boarding, concert and bonus cards.
