We have audio explaining these new developments directly from Wednesday's Google I/O keynote, featuring Google CEO Sundar Pichai, along with Scott Huffman and Rishi Chandra.

Google recently announced their Google Payment API and now the company has revealed that mobile payments are coming to the Google Assistant. This will allow customers to save their loyalty cards to Android Pay, at which point retailers will be able to dole out offers directly through the app. Meaning that, even though your Android phone already comes with some apps out of the box courtesy of OS developer Google, you can expand upon that collection by simply entering the Play Store. This feature will also run on company's messaging app "Allo".

Tech giant Google yesterday at its I/O event has announced many updates for its products, one of many is sending money through Google Assistant, users will soon be able to send and receive money using its Google Assistant.

This outing against Texas Tech, Battenfield pitched six innings and again, only gave up four hits and struck out three batters. OU and Baylor are the only two Big 12 schools that have played in all 21 conference championships in Big 12 history.

Earlier this year in January, in an APK teardown, a feature was spotted which would allow users to type into their smartphone in order to give instructions to the Google Assistant rather than speak to it. You will just have to provide a password or identify yourself using the fingerprint scanner to securely send money using the Google Assistant.

Google also said that Android Pay is now available in 10 markets, and will soon add Brazil, Canada, Russia, Spain and Taiwan.

While it was not mentioned directly, the person on the receiving end of the money transfer will presumably also have to have a debit card attached to their Google Account.
