Google Wallet Now Lets You Add Credit/Debit Cards By Snapping Pictures

By: Chris Crum - November 22, 2013

Earlier this week, Google unveiled the Google Wallet Card, a physical card that you can use to pay for things at stores using your Google Wallet account.

Google has now updated its Google Wallet app for Android, adding another big feature. You can now add credit and debit cards to your account by taking pictures of them.

“Add a credit/debit card just by taking a picture,” Google says in the What’s New section on Google Wallet’s Google Play page. “Both the number and expiration date will be captured automatically.”

The Google Wallet Card is free. Another feature of the latest update is a direct line to getting one:

Also included in the update are some minor bug fixes and performance improvements.
