Agreed
I always try use Google Wallet when I can because they charge less than Paypal or my bank when converting currency
Unfortunately many sites still dont accept Google Wallet, e.g. Steam and eBay (most sellers only accept Paypal)

Uh, I've been sending money on the Android Google wallet app for a long time now. At the least the entire calendar year. It was an update a long time ago. This recent update only added money requests and gift cards.
Just read the source you listed PhoneArena! It says right in it.
