A new update is available for Google Wallet users from the Play Store. According to the changelog, the new version of Google’s mobile payment system features updates to the app’s interface, improvements to battery life, and overall app stabilization.
The major change is a move to an interface better integrated with Android’s Holo theme. Instead of a landing page with shortcuts to various functions, the app now features a navigation bar more reminiscent of those found in other Google mobile apps. Just as in other apps, swiping left or right navigates between these “tabs.”
Unfortunately, Google Wallet is still lacking support for a large number of Android smartphones based on carrier restrictions, and this update won’t do anything to change that. If you are able to take advantage of the digital wallet, head on over to Google Play and download the latest version now.
