Soon you will be able to send money form Google Assistant

We have audio explaining these new developments directly from Wednesday's Google I/O keynote, featuring Google CEO Sundar Pichai, along with Scott Huffman and Rishi Chandra. By connecting a MyPanera account with their loyalty card in Android Pay, Panera Bread will be able to push out information about new menu items or offer coupons to customers when they arrive at a store.

At the annual I/O developer conference, Google announced the Google Payment API, which lets people pay in-app or online using any verified card that's saved to their Google Account.

Where Assistant excels is the interaction with your Google Home device which Google recently launched as a rival to Amazon's Alexa. Google made a number of updates to Assistant's capabilities, including an interesting tie-in with yet another new Google product called Google Lens.

Google said the Assistant will allow users to pay for stuff, but during a later talk regarding Android Pay it also revealed users will soon be allowed to send and receive money via the Assistant.

Developers who adopt this API can enable an easy-to-use checkout experience for their customers.

Earlier reports said that the company's Android Pay would not just make available on countries, but also in more cities.

In a blog post, Google confirmed that it would soon allow US users to send or receive payments directly using Google Assistant.

There's even more, Google is now getting more serious about mobile payment. Create one if you do not have it by selecting a new Google account. At that time, Android Pay offers only users an alternative way to pay by phone instead of having to take out their credit cards at the register at the store.
