The Google Wallet app, which will replace Google Pay, has started appearing on users' phones in 39 countries.

In addition to the traditional features of Google Pay, Google Wallet allows you to store loyalty cards, Covid-19 vaccination certificate, travel and other documents. In the future, it will be possible to add ID card and driving licence to the app.

The company has already started distributing the app in 39 countries and it will be available to all users in the next few days. In many countries Wallet will replace Google Pay along with the app update, but in the US and Singapore, for example, there will be two apps: Wallet will store cards and Pay will be used to send money.

In 2011, there was an NFC app with the same, and then it evolved to include other payment features.  In 2015 there was Android Pay, which in 2018 Google merged with Google Wallet to create Google Pay. The app has now returned to its original name.
