Google unveiled a ton of cool stuff at Google I/O, and one of them is the capability to send money through Gmail. Yes, you've read that right. Google is now making it easy for Gmail users to pay, send, or receive money using Google Wallet. By integrating Google Wallet into Gmail, users will not only save tons of time in sending and receiving money, they can also be assured of a secure and safe transaction.
Showing a video of the feature at today's event, Google says that users won't have to leave their Gmail inbox. Simply look out for the dollar or $ icon in the attachment options to initiate the transaction. Even better is that it's free to send money, just make sure that your bank account is linked to Google Wallet. Low fees could apply when using credit or debit cards.
