For better or worse, sometimes convenience takes precedence. That being the case, Google Wallet users may be happy to learn about this latest Domino's Pizza app update. Simply put -- you can now order pizza and pay using your Wallet account.
Google has been slowly adding features to Wallet in recent months. Few of these new additions were all that exciting by themselves, but it does show how Google has been shifting the service. If you remember back, Google Wallet first launched with focus on making in-store payments with your smartphone.
AT&T users with an LG G2 may want to be on the lookout for an update notification. The update is on the smaller side, but it still does manage to address two key items. The two items mentioned on the changelog include Google Wallet and Google+.
Google introduced the Wallet Card back in late-November. The card, actually a MasterCard debit is automatically attached to your Wallet account, which ultimately means users have another way to use the Google provided service. We remember seeing plenty of people requesting, then later receiving a card for their personal Wallet account. But now several months later, we are wondering how many are actually being used.
We aren't sure many people are using Google Wallet Tap & Pay, much less using it on a regular basis. For one, the places to use it are somewhat limited. Not to mention, device support hasn't been all that great. And to add a bit to that last point, it looks like the device support is going to slim down even further.
Google has announced the latest feature that will be coming to the Wallet app. Said feature is called "Orders" and this particular update will begin rolling out to Android users this week. As the name of the feature would suggest, Orders will allow you to keep track of your purchases.
When it comes to mobile payments, we’ve long been frustrated by the lack of utility. Google Wallet has been blocked in favor of other services like Isis, with many credit card companies wary of the service altogether. Using KitKat’s new Host Card Emulator feature, both Visa and Mastercard are ready to make mobile payments happen in a big way.
Google has recently shared details on the latest update for Wallet, and this one expands upon what we have been seeing with earlier updates. The latest Google Wallet update will be dealing with loyalty program cards. Specifically, Google will be making it even easier to add those loyalty cards to your Wallet account.
Isis launched nationwide with support from three of the four major US carriers. The carriers included T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon Wireless. But aside from the carrier support, Isis also launched with payment support coming by way of American Express and Chase.
With Google Wallet cards arriving to consumers this week (we got ours last night), Visa has attacked on the other side. Introducing V.me, Visa is set to offer an online payment solution to rival the likes of Google, Amazon, and PayPal. The service recently launched in parts of Europe, and offers a secure way to pay for goods online.
