Earlier this year, Google launched some new Google Wallet APIs. Since then, the company has been trying to educate developers on how to best take advantage of them.
That continues with this recent Office Hours hangout Google uploaded to its Developers YouTube channel:
Google CEO Larry Page recently talked a bit about Wallet (among many other things) in an interview with Fortune. Here’s what he had to say about it:
I think that’s an area where we’ve made really rapid progress actually. If you talk to the users, they rave about it. We’d obviously like to get it to more people if we are allowed to. I’d like to see more cooperation in that area and in many parts of the industry.
Besides Wallet, we’re very good at accepting worldwide payments. We have very many small advertisers. We’re also getting very good with Play on Android at accepting payments from users in many, many different countries, wireless, carrier billing and all sorts of other forms of payment. We have probably a non-understood set of capabilities there.
