  • The Google Wallet service has just received an update, that makes it support all credit cards, so it doesn’t offer Citi exclusivity as it did before. Back when Google Wallet debuted, only users with a Google Prepaid Card or Citi MasterCard could rely on NFC payment.

    Of course, you could add funds to the Google Prepaid Card with whatever card, but that was complicated for some users. Now Google announced that its service supports the likes of Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card for mobile payments through various banks. So, any phone with NFC and access to the Wallet app can now replace the credit cards you carry with you and interact with retailers in this new and evolved way.

    The updated Google Wallet has security features that have been moved to the cloud, instead of local device storage. What this means is that you get synced preferred payment methods and a single management hub for all online and in store payments for the Google Wallet account. If you lose or sell the Android phone you own there’s also the option to disable the Wallet features on it, which is cool. You can download Google Wallet from here.
