A while back, Google launched the Wallet – a method to make payments using your phone. And now, if rumors are to be believed, Google’s working to get out a physical Google Wallet credit card. With this credit card, users can combine the power of all their cards into the Google Wallet card, and carry just this one piece of plastic on them wherever they go.
This Google Wallet card syncs automatically with a user’s online account, and selects the same default credit card as per the user’s settings. Users can use the card just like a regular credit card and edit the preferences using the smartphone app for Google Wallet.
Google has reportedly also set up a help website detailing how the card would work, including a section called “Eligible Devices”, which mentions that the Google Wallet card could be used on devices running Android 2.3.3 or higher. There’s still no information on when this technology is expected to release.
While this would take away from the original purpose of Google Wallet, which was established a card-less payment system, maybe this feature would entice more customers to try it out. Google, when contacted, declined to comment on these rumors but added that they are constantly working to find ways to make shopping a better experience for consumers. d “Eligible Devices”, which mentions that the Google Wallet card could be used on devices running Android 2.3.3 or higher.
