New Delhi: Google, the search engine giant, has revealed that Google Wallet will soon offer the automatic addition of movie tickets and boarding passes once a user receives confirmation via email on Gmail after completing payment. For this feature to work smoothly, the email must contain the complete QR code or boarding pass barcode.

This innovation hasn’t gone unnoticed, as Android expert Mishaal Rahman highlighted the development via a post on X (earlier known as Twitter). The company’s move will help users to make their travel hassle-free, ensuring easier access to their movie tickets.

Currently, the feature is operational for select global movie chains and airlines, with plans to onboard more partners in the future.

Expanding its functionality, Google has extended the archiving feature to Wear OS, enabling users to manage their Wallet passes directly from their Android smartwatches.

In a related update, Google recently announced that the Google Pay app will cease to be available in the US starting June 4, 2024. Despite this change, users can still utilize features like tap to pay and various payment methods through Google Wallet.
