Earlier this week we launched a new Google Wallet app for all Android phones (v2.3+). The response from users has been great, and we want iOS users to enjoy all of the benefits too. So, today we’re introducing the first Google Wallet app for iPhone (iOS v6.0+), which means even more people can easily send money to friends and store all of their loyalty cards and offers in one place.

Like the Android app, the Google Wallet iPhone app makes it easy for you to:

Send money from anywhere. 
Easily and securely send money on-the-go to any friend in the US with an email address (ages 18+). And, once you send money with the Google Wallet app you’ll also get early access to sending money within Gmail from your desktop.

Never miss another loyalty point.
Add all of your existing cards into the app by scanning the barcodes or entering your card numbers. Or, you can easily join new programs like Alaska Airlines, Belly, and Red Mango from within the app and redeem at checkout. For these merchants you can view your loyalty status and rewards balance, and you'll also see your saved loyalty cards in Google Now when there are nearby opportunities to use them. Other exciting programs that we’ll be adding soon include Avis Car Rental, BJ’s Restaurants, Cosi, Hard Rock International, InterContinental Hotels Group, Marriott International, Raley’s, and The Body Shop.

Save more with offers.
In addition to all of your loyalty cards, you can save money with offers in Google Wallet whether you found them on the Google Maps app, Google Search, or Google Offers. Starting today, you can also save offers to Google Wallet directly from merchant or couponing sites such as Valpak.com. Redeem all of your saved offers by showing your Google Wallet app to the cashier at checkout.

Add your credit card in seconds, pay online in a few clicks. Easily scan your debit and credit cards into the app and use them to send money, buy on Google Play, or shop on select mobile websites.

A secure digital wallet. And of course, shop with confidence knowing that all of your Google Wallet transactions are monitored 24/7 for fraud. With Google Wallet Purchase Protection, you’re 100% covered for eligible unauthorized Google Wallet transactions. And, if you lose your iPhone, you can easily disable the Google Wallet app online.

Get the new Google Wallet app for iPhone
Whether you have an iPhone or Android phone, we hope you enjoy the new Google Wallet app. If you’re in the US, you can download it later today from the Apple App Store or immediately from the Google Play Store.
