Despite the obvious convenience, there are still a good amount of people in the world that still avoid shopping for goods online. One of the big reasons? The stress and uncertainty that comes with online ordering. Never knowing where in the world your package is, where it’s headed, or when it’s going to arrive — it’s simply not a good time for everyone.
Google is looking to take away some of the frustrations that come with online shopping, by introducing Orders, coming soon to your Google Wallet app. With Orders, Google Wallet will automatically track online orders (by finding receipts sent through Gmail), sending notifications about your package’s status, as well as view past orders. Not only will this help make people’s lives less worrisome, but it’ll bring a little more traffic to Google’s Wallet application.
If you’re living in the US and rocking an Android device with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and above, expect an update to your Google Wallet app this week. Everyone else… Guess there’s always Google Now?
