Google Pay can now automatically import loyalty cards, tickets and offers from your Gmail account. The feature, first described by 9to5Google announces that by using "You will not receive more offers, it will be easier to use them".
When I tried the feature on my own, Google Pay was able to get a single ticket for me: a member ID for my United Airlines frequent flyer account. 9to5Google reports that the service was able to obtain several coupons and reward points when it was tested.
You can enable it yourself in the Google Pay settings menu under "General", and then press the "Gmail Imports" key.
The new functionality, which was first seen in the tests In February, is similar to what Apple Wallet already offers. The first iOS app is capable of storing boarding passes, tickets and loyalty cards, but is confident that you will add cards manually instead of automatically removing them.
Google did not immediately respond to a request for comments on the new functionality to understand how widely it was implemented.
