Google Wallet to roll out ID and Driver's License support in selected states

Google Wallet to roll out ID and Driver's License support in selected states
Google's quest to transform Wallet into a one-app solution for personal identification is moving another step forward, according to the guys at XDA. The company released a revamped version of the service back in May, but the ID and driver's license features were missing, and support was believed to come later this year.

Now the time has finally come, at least for some US residents in selected states. In the recently released changelog for the Google Play System update for December 2022, the company has included a Wallet update, bringing the aforementioned features to beta users.

We don't have information on which exact states would get the service first in this beta release, and more information on the subject should come from Google in the coming weeks. Along with the Google Wallet beta changes, there are several changes to Cast and Nearby Share, as well as Google Play Store features. Check the full changelog below.
