Google Wallet is Google’s take on the mobile wallet service which is accomplished by relying on NFC-enabled devices and compatible smartphones. That being said it was last week where it was suggested that Google could be coming up with a physical card for its Google Wallet feature and if you needed more proof of that happening, it seems that Google has let the cat out of the bag themselves via their own website. On the help page for its Google Wallet service, a section for “Eligible Devices” revealed several references to a “Google Wallet card”. Unfortunately no pictures were shown but here’s hoping that the mention of Google’s website is an indication that the official announcement could be soon.
For those wondering what the Google Wallet card is about, it’s basically a physical card that Google is hoping will replace credit and debit cards that you typically carry with you, providing you with a one-stop solution for cashless payments. The Google Wallet application is also said to allow users to choose which credit or debit cards are associated with the Google Wallet card, which we guess will help with security in the event that you misplace it. We’ll keep our eyes peeled for more information, so check back with us at a later date where hopefully we will have more to share with you guys.
