Google brings to peer-to-peer payments to Assistant on Android, soon Google Home
Google has announced that it is bringing a popular feature of Google Wallet, peer-to-peer payments, to Assistant on Android and iOS this week.
Peer-to-peer payments were sequestered to the Wallet app for many years before recently being subsumed into the Google Pay app itself under the brand Pay Send. Now users can ask Assistant to do all the hard work, as long as the user has the contact in his or her address book.
Google says the functionality will roll out to Google Home devices in "the coming months."
