The recently launched Google wallet service will soon get another feature which will allow its users to save while shopping using the Near Field Communications functionality on their Android devices. Google announced the introduction of bargains and deals in its newly launched mobile wallet service during a conference in Southern California on Tuesday.
With this new introduction Google plans to take on bargain and deal services like Groupon and others in various other countries as the service grows over time.
The service will be available automatically to the mobile wallet application users on Android devices, who would be updated about the deals or discounts available. The users then can make purchases through the phone or using the NFC functionality of the Android devices.
Google will start testing this service out in the Oregon city of Portland and eventually expand to New York City and the San Francisco area of the USA as the part of their first phase plan.
There is no information whether this service will be extended or given a worldwide flavour. But looking at the trends related to service launched in the past, Android users in other countries also can expect this service.
As the mobile wallet this discount service will also be a free to use service and is expected to stay like that for the coming times as well.
