The most populous nation in the world now offers access to Google’s digital wallet.

The internet behemoth declared on Wednesday, May 8, that users in India may now access the Google Wallet, emphasizing “localized experiences.”

According to the company report, “We’ve partnered with over 20 of India’s top brands to start, offering one of the widest ranges of partners for any digital wallet in India.” “We hope to announce additional partners soon.”

PVR and INOX are two of these firms; they have partnered with Google to let Android users to add movie or event tickets to their wallets. Other brands include Flipkart and Dominos, which enable customers to share digital versions of loyalty and gift cards.

“We’re partnering with airlines like Air India, Air India Express and online travel companies like MakeMyTrip, Ixigo, and Easemytrip to help travelers easily save and access their mobile boarding passes in Google Wallet.” “Pro tip: If you own a Pixel device, take a screenshot of your boarding pass and tap ‘Add to Google Wallet.’”

Google also says that users would be able to scan paper documents, buy and save public transportation tickets, and utilize their Android phones in place of business identity badges.

People’s opinions on the use of digital wallets to keep private papers differ, as PYMNTS reported last week.

“Tracking the Digital Payments Takeover: Can New Use Cases Drive Consumer Use of Digital Wallets?” is a report published by PYMNTS Intelligence. The use of digital wallet storage features is something that 51% of consumers claimed they are either extremely interested in or somewhat interested in.

When asked if they were interested in retaining documents on their devices, 78% of seniors and baby boomers said they were either “slightly” or “nonely” interested.

When younger consumers weigh in, the enthusiasm for storing papers in digital wallets rises, according to PYMNTS.

Both 51% of millennials and 49% of respondents expressed a strong level of curiosity. Moreover, 26% of Gen X customers and 46% of bridge millennials are very interested in utilizing unique digital wallet capabilities.

Age is only one indicator of how often people use digital wallets. Another factor is income, as 55% of users who earn $100,000 or more annually use digital wallets, compared to 41% of users who earn less than $50,000 annually.
