After originally being Google’s source for NFC payments, Google Wallet has given up that role to Android Pay and transitioned to be an alternative to PayPal. From mobile, this has been pretty easy with Google Wallet’s fantastic Android and iOS apps. Now the web app has caught up

With the new streamlined web app, Google Wallet makes it simple and easy to send money between friends and family. Money can be sent from any debit card connected to your Google account and, of course, you can send money between Android and iOS users from the web as well.

Money sent will automatically end up in your connected bank account without the need to “cash out” like on PayPal. If that sounds simple, that’s because it really is. Google Wallet isn’t meant to be a hub for online payments, but just an easy way to exchange money person-to-person. After all, Android Pay is only getting better and better for online and in-store payments. You can try out the new Google Wallet web app at wallet.google.com.
