The feature was already tucked away into the Web version, but this is the first time its arrived in a mobile app.
To send money, simply click on the attachment button and tap Send Money. It sends the money from the Google Wallet you have attached with your account. Recipients can receive the money without installing an extra app, which is great if you need to send money to a friend who can’t be bothered to install anything.
The feature is only available in the US for now, and is rolling out to Android users today. No word on when it’s coming to iOS, but we can imagine it’s only a matter of time.
