Google Glass will soon let you send money by voice [RUMOR]

Google Glass vs HTC One camera DSC00163

Sending money is just one of those modern conveniences that seems to be getting easier and easier as technology progresses. If you thought hopping into your Gmail account to send money was easy enough, how about being able to send it purely by voice? Well, that’s what Google could be cooking up for Glass users once Google Wallet arrives on the wearable.

According to sources out of TechCrunch, the upcoming feature — which is currently undergoing internal testing — will allow users to simply speak the phrase, “send money” to send funds. While being able to pay someone back for a good or service nearly hands-free is a convenient one, just keep in mind Google gets a small percentage of those transactions lest you add your bank account to Google Wallet.

      OMG! Perfect use case scenario.

      • scoter man1

        It would also be pretty good with “throw my money at…[name]“

  • Boris Breynin

    Gimmick to the max.

  • steveb944

    Even easier to get robbed. Give the thief your money AND your Glass

    • scoter man1

      Hahaha, walk up next to somebody, make it activate, “okay glass send money to [your name]” how much? “All of it”.

      • Boris Breynin

        Then convientaley Glass picks up you saying dnt shoot lol

        • scoter man1

          I feel like the majority of glass wearers aren’t the type that would have a CPL. Plus, that isn’t an appropriate situation to shoot someone even if you did.

          • Boris Breynin

            Lets hope ppl who will try to rob us(not saying it should)will be clueless and not know what you wearing on ur head lol

    • http://google.com/+derekross Derek Ross

      I’m guessing it only works with your 10 preferred Glass contacts or at most, the people in your Google contacts. You could steal my Glass and only be able to send my friends and family money.

      • steveb944

        It’ll be an inside job then. ;) My Google account holds way too many G+ contacts I don’t care to carry on me, but I have to.

      • Boris Breynin

        I’ll will take my chances with Money Gram or Western Union lol…Any hacker could hack ur glass and make you believe you sending money when in fact they draining your account haha.

  • Fodografes

    This sounds like a horrible idea! What happens when you let someone demo you Glass and they speak the option?

  • Max

    Google should build in voice recognition security feature, or a secret head motion sequence you set up to confirm payments, that being said if someone did speak the option themselves, that would be a felony, google could even save the sound clips of you paying people in a secure file in your wallet as evidence for their trial.
