When Google decided to end the Android Pay brand to start a new era with Google Pay , we soon learned that the company’s plans went beyond mobile payments . Little by little, those from Mountain View have been adding new utilities to the platform, such as the possibility of adding travel tickets in some countries selected. Now, however, Google wants to go even further.
According have discovered in Android Police through the code of the latest version of the app Google Pay, the payment platform will expand its features very soon, integrating the possibility of adding, in addition to credit, debit and loyalty cards, tickets to events or boarding passes to flights.
First, new text strings -strings- have been discovered in the application code, suggesting the possibility of add boarding passes to flights to the Google Pay app . Although this tool is not yet enabled, the signs gather enough information to confirm that, sooner or later, Google will announce its arrival officially.
Everything points to the fact that Google Pay users will be able to add their boarding passes through a reference number, and this will be generated the virtual ticket including the flight number, the terminal, the time of departure and other data relevant when traveling. Further, Google Pay will show information about each specific flight, such as possible delays or cancellations.
On the other hand, thanks to Google Pay, Android will finally have a native application that can be used to add tickets to events virtually, just as it exists in iOS with the app Wallet . And is that as confirmed, Google Pay will offer the possibility to add tickets to events , and according to the information provided, this tool would be compatible with events such as movies, sports events or concerts, among others.
Finally, Google will include support for Suica and WAON smart cards, used in Japan. At the moment, we do not know when the activation of the aforementioned functions will take place, although we assume that Google will not take too long to do so. We will remain attentive to future updates of Google Pay for Android.
