Google has rebranded its Google Pay contactless payments app as Google Wallet, which now encompasses a number of things, including loyalty passes, digital keys, and, of course, credit and debit cards. Now, Wallet will be available in 12 more countries.
The Wallet rebrand is landing in a handful of new countries, bringing the total to 57 countries. The service is already available to users from Argentina, Cyprus, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Malaysia, Mexico, Slovenia, Thailand and Vietnam. Some of these counties were using the previous version of Google Pay, while others are adding support for Google’s contactless payments app for the first time.
Not only can you use Wallet in more countries, but you can also install it on more devices. Google has made its payments app available on a handful of Fitbit devices — more specifically, the Fitbit Sense 2 and Versa 4. This means you can now add your cards and pay in stores with a tap of your wrist, just like does currently. on watches like the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5. Since Fitbit is owned by Google, it’s nice to see the company giving its non-Wear OS devices a little love.
If you have a Fitbit Sense 2 or Fitbit Versa 4 and live in one of the 57 countries where Wallet is supported, including the 12 new ones, you’ll be able to start paying soon.
