Remember Google Wallet? It’s the NFC payment solution that Google launched in 2011. It’s morphed a bit over the years into something less NFC-centric and now it’s supported by taxi-hailing service Lyft.
Today Lyft announced that passengers could pay for rides using Google’s payment service. To enable Google Wallet as a payment option, just navigate to the “payment” section of the app and add Google Wallet.
In related news, Lyft also announced that Google I/O attendees would be provided with discounted rides during the conference on May 28 and 29. Lyft says it will share more details on the discounts in the “coming weeks.”
