Google Wallet lets users add credit and debit cards via camera

Google on Thursday released an update to its Google Wallet application which makes it even easier to add credit cards and debit cards. As noted in the changelog, the app now lets users snap a picture of their cards to integrate them with the Wallet account. Take the photo and Wallet will recognize the numbers and expiration date, saving users just a couple of minutes of their life. Minutes that might be used for better things, such as staring.

Google Wallet is free to install on your Android and iOS devices; this week saw the rollout of the physical cards which can be used anywhere MasterCard is accepted.
