Could Google Wallet be set for a shock return?

Google could be reviving its old “Google Wallet” brand name as a new home for Android’s contactless payments.

According to a tweet by Mishaal Rahman, Senior Technical Editor at Esper, the new portal would provide users with access to “payment cards, loyalty cards, and more all in one place”, including the likes of passes across travel and entertainment. 

Rahman said the user interface will sit within Google Play Services, and included several screengrabs showing how the new service would look, suggesting the new Google Wallet will be able to pull tickets and passes directly from a user’s Gmail account, much like Google Pay is able to.
