Fake Google Wallet is being granted access to Google Accounts

Back in January, Google simplified its payment offering by merging Android Pay and Google Wallet into Google Pay. The new appellation made it simpler for users to manage their payments, thanks to a unified platform allowing them to pay with their phone, but also online using their browser.

Today Google rolled out a minor change to the Google Wallet site. Now you can request money in bulk from up to five people at once.

The feature doesn't seem to have hit the Android App yet, but I would imagine it will eventually.

Project Fi announces group repay with Google Wallet

Google's own carrier, Project Fi, is a pretty great service if you don't use much data.
