Google revealed a major update to its Google Wallet application for iOS on Monday, which brings a couple of new features and a redesign.

Users can now send peer-to-peer payments, or money out directly to a debit card — however Google is removing support for loyalty cards, gift cards, and offers with this update.

You can send out those here.

Google said:

Send cash to anybody in the U.S. with an email address. It’s quick, simple, and free to send directly from your debit card, bank account, or Wallet Balance.

When you get cash, you can quickly cash out to your bank account using your debit card, or spend it instantly with the Google Wallet Card.

Emphasis is being set on the ability to send money to people who don’t use the Wallet application, however for now this is still all selective to U.S. users.

Other features that Google wants users to drill home include splitting expenses (i.e. at a feast or on an trip), managing the Wallet Card (accepted wherever debit MasterCard is, and can be also used at ATMs), placing limits of spending on setting, up recurring transfers from your bank account.
