Starting today, users of the Gmail app on Android will be able to send or request money with anyone, including those who don’t have a Gmail address, with just a tap.
To access the new feature, you tap the attachment icon (the paperclip), then choose either send or request money, depending on your needs.
The entire process takes place in the Gmail app — you don’t have to have Google Wallet installed.
