Google begins rolling out direct app notifications for Google Wallet service

Google has begun rolling out direct app notifications for its Google Wallet service. This new feature is designed to enhance the user experience by providing timely and relevant updates directly within the app.

Previously, whenever you made a contactless payment with your phone or used a digital pass stored in Google Wallet, you’d likely see a notification pop up from “Google Pay.” This is because Google Play Services handled all notification duties for Google Wallet transactions.

While functional, it wasn’t exactly intuitive. This update streamlines the process by allowing Google Wallet to directly notify you within the app itself.

  • Passes: No more frantic searches for boarding passes or event tickets! Google Wallet will send update notifications for all your passes, ensuring you have everything you need at your fingertips.

  • Updates and alerts: Stay informed about any important updates or security alerts related to Google Wallet itself.
  • Promotional campaigns: Be in the know about any relevant promotional campaigns Google Wallet might offer through its notification system.
