Google Pay is expanding quite fast and now rolls out to 17 new banks in the United States. The company continues to roll out new features and improvements to Google Pay to make it a highly useful payment method globally. A few months back we heard how Google Pay would be getting a feature where it could import data from Gmail and it seems it’s finally happening to a lot more Google Pay users.
While it’s not sure as to when the official public rollout in mass scale would be done, though an increasing number of Google Pay users have begun to see the feature. By default, the option is toggled off though you could activate it by going to Settings > General > Gmail imports and toggle it on. Note that you’d only be able to do that if your Google Pay version is above v2.86 to be able to see the toggle.
Once the settings are turned on, Google Pay would automatically pull data when it’s available like for one user it pulled American Airlines AAdvance miles, Best Buy Reward Certificate, etc. Interestingly, deleting the email from Gmail account would also wipe out the respective data from Google Pay as well.
