Google Wallet Adds ‘Orders’ to Help You Track Your Online Purchases

Google Wallet 'Orders'

Google on Wednesday announced an update to its Google Wallet app for Android and iOS, which adds a new feature called Orders, which requires your receipts to be first sent to your Gmail account. The new version is rolling out this week; once it’s available you can download it directly from Google Play and Apple’s App Store. Google Wallet now lets you automatically track your online orders, receive notifications about status updates (Google partnered with primary package carriers in the US), and track all your past orders as well. To take advantage of the feature, tap “Activate” under “Track your orders” or just hit “Orders” in the app’s menu. Slowly but surely, Google Wallet is becoming your one-stop shop for everything you purchase online, at least if you live in the US.
