After the latest update, the Google Contacts app will let you send money to your friends with the tap of a button.
Google is updating its Google Contacts app with a new feature that would allow you to send money to your friends and your families with the tap of a button.
Right after the rebranding of the Android Pay to Google Pay and the Google Wallet to the Google Pay Send, the company is showing a keen interest to roll the feature across as many aspects of the Android as possible and integrating its feature to the Google Contacts is a nice move by Google.
The update has not been rolled out in one go and it is gradually reaching the Android devices as a server-side update.
After the update, you would find the pay icon in the row of the existing icons of the Google Contacts app just like you find it in the Messages app. You can send the money provided you have linked your money account with your Google account.
As of now, you can only send money to your contacts. There is no provision to request money from someone. It is, however, safe to assume that this feature might arrive pretty soon too.
