Now send and receive money in Gmail

Android users can now use Gmail to send and receive money

Gmail Money

Sending and receiving money just got even more convenient, if you have an Android device and a Gmail account that is. Thanks to a new update, you will be able to send and receive money via the Gmail app.

The new update, which rolled out today, allows Android users to  send and request payments as attachments. This works just like sending a photo or PDF. Available only in the US for now, users might have already seen this feature on the desktop client of Gmail, but chances are  you need to get paid back/do the paying back, you'll be on your phone anyway.

To send money, all you have to do is select the attachment icon in the upper right-hand corner of the Gmail app. You'll see options to either send or request money. Make your selection, attach a note if you like, and off your cash goes. You can also send and receive to and from non-Gmail users, but you will need a Google Wallet account in order to complete the transaction. As you go through the process, if you don't have a Google Wallet account, you'll be asked to set one up.

There is no need for an additional app, and users can set it up in a way that it transfers directly to their bank account. Would you prefer using this method to transfer cash? Let us know in the comments below.
