Google Wallet has taken a change of direction now that the future of mobile payments for Google is Android Pay, and is instead focusing on sending and receiving money.

With that in mind, there is a new revamped Google Wallet app that is making its way onto the Google Play Store as a new download rather than an update.

There’s a new icon for Google Wallet and also a color scheme change, but the main difference is how it works, allowing users to deposit and withdraw, and send and receive payments within the US for free.

Once you’ve downloaded the new Google Wallet, the old app will remain on your launcher – perhaps that will become Android Pay when it launches?
