Google has rolled out a new update for the Google Wallet app, which brings a useful feature, one that is going to make things a lot easier. The updated app comes with support for adding cards by simply taking their picture. That’s right, to add new credit or debit cards to their Google Wallet, all users have to do now is to simply take a picture. The app will automatically capture the card number and its expiration date and add it, so that the user can then proceed to make payments as and when required.
Apart from this feature, the app also comes with minor bug fixes and performance improvements. No major changes or enhancements have been made in the suer interface or design department. Support for Google Wallet Card has been added as well. The physical Google Wallet Card was announced recently, and now that the app supports it, users can spend their Wallet balance at millions of MasterCard locations and even withdraw cash at ATMs. Google Wallet app is compatible with any Android device that is running firmware version 2.3.3 or higher. The updated Google Wallet app is live now and available for download absolutely free from the Google Play Store.
