Just like Apple, it seems that Google also wants to be a part of our everyday finances. TechCrunch reports that Google has a virtual and physical debit card in progress.
The report states that this Google card will be available both in physical form for purchases in regular stores and in digital form for fast purchases online via Google Pay. Of course, the card will keep a good track of what you have bought and where you bought your goods. Examples of how it looks in the app can be seen in the leaked image below.
TechCrunch asked Google if they really have a card going on and they replied that they are currently exploring the possibilities of offering their users checking accounts in partnership with some US banks.
Google spokesman Craig Ewer stated in november: ”We’re exploring how we can partner with banks and credit unions in the US to offer smart checking accounts through Google Pay, helping their customers benefit from useful insights and budgeting tools, while keeping their money in an FDIC or NCUA-insured account”.
