Google Contacts gets shortcut for sending money with Google Pay Send

Google Contacts gets shortcut for sending money with Google Pay Send

The feature will allow users to share important moments, even when friends and family can't take the call.

Having said that, just because this feature is being tested by Google doesn't mean it will indeed be rolled out to all the users in the future. A report from Android Police indicated that a certain user came across the "Send" option on their Google Contacts app. However, the receiver has the option of saving favourites locally to his/her phone. Once you open a contact in the Contacts app, you will see a '$' sign amongst other options that will let you send money to that contact.

After tapping the "Send" button, you choose how much you'd like to send off, choose "Send Money", and you're done.




To send money, a user will have to tap on that '$' icon and enter the amount. A message will be available for 24 hours after playing it unless you download it.

Some users have already started using the feature, and you can give us a feedback to help us know if it is one of those tools that can truly make Duo an exciting video calling app. The low battery alert feature is part of version 25 of the video calling app launched by Google over a year ago. That's because calls in Google Duo might not always be planned. So it will be safe to say that presently this feature will only be available in Canada right now. It's just a change of name really, and the feature still offers the same function as before. Google has itself designed the app keeping in mind these random and unplanned calls.
