Google Wallet

Falling in line with other recent Google app updates, Google Wallet is being updated today with a simple quick account switcher so you can access your various Wallet accounts easily. You'll now have the option to switch between active Google Accounts from the slide-in panel on the left of the app — along with re-entering that account's PIN — on the fly. A far cry from the previous version, which required you to wipe out the app entirely and start over with a new account.

The new interface also scrambles up the settings a bit, bringing a quick access button in that same slide-in panel directly to your list of cards and accounts. The actual app settings are a bit cleaner as a result, which is always a bonus. The app has received an overall redesign recently, so there's no need for another one, but these quick changes make a lot of sense considering the direction Google's design has been moving to integrate multiple accounts.

You can grab a download of the latest Google Wallet app from the Play Store link at the top of this post.

There's still no place that this can be used in my home city. Just like PayPal nobody takes a payment from Paypal except one store.

Maybe it's the same problem as my area... Half of the NFC payment terminals are inactive, for no particular reason.

Previously, Verizon blocked NFC payments in Google Wallet, in favor of their ISIS app. With this update, I'm now able to use NFC payments successfully with merchants. Thanks Google/Verizon!
