News broke that Google’s Help section had a new, discreet addition: the announcement of the Google Wallet Card. The site slyly kept the announcement subtle, but it certainly did not take long to be noticed. Google says that devices that are running Android 2.3.3 will soon be able to use an actual payment card with the Google Wallet app.


The Google Wallet Card will offer a brand new way to get Google Wallet into the hands of users whose mobile devices don’t have an NFC chip, or potentially even those who don’t have a Google-based mobile device (we’re looking at you, iPhone users).

With the Google Wallet card, just like the virtual Google Wallet, you can load up all of your credit cards onto one card. You will choose one card to be the default card that is charged when you use it, but if you want to switch to another card, you can simply do so through the Google Wallet app on your phone.

There are reportedly more announcements coming about Google Wallet’s expanded performance, including the ability to make deposits and withdrawals, and to be able to transfer money. For those who want to know when the next version of Google Wallet is released, you can request an invite.

 

As we said earlier, we are hopeful that this means that Google Wallet will be more widely accessible to those using mobile devices other than Android, especially since there is an option on the invite request to select “iOS” as your operating system.

And it appears that Google is continuing to find ways to creep its way into the hands of Apple users. Point: Google.
