Google is deprecating the Wallet card at the end of April

The company will instead focus on its Wallet app.


Google announced on Thursday that it will no longer support the physical debit cards tied to users' Wallet accounts beginning July 1. Instead, Google plans to press forward with development on its mobile app.

The cards are officially retiring at the end of April, meaning that users will not be able to load any additional money on them but they'll still work for purchases. The cards will deactivate completely at the end of June. Any remaining balance on the card at that point will remain in your Wallet account and be accessible through the mobile app. And if you're looking for a replacement debit card, Google is recommending similar services from American Express and Simple.
