Eligible devices for use with Google Wallet

Non-NFC devices

The Google Wallet app is available to US users on devices that meet the following system requirements:

  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) or higher.
  • iOS 6 or higher.

 

NFC devices

Tap and pay functionality is available in the US, and requires an NFC-enabled Android device running 4.4 (KitKat) or higher on any carrier network. Not all devices running KitKat will support tap and pay. Here is a list of devices running KitKat that cannot be used for tap and pay:

  • Samsung Galaxy Note III
  • Evo 4G LTE
  • Nexus 7 (2012)

At this time, tap and pay functionality is only supported on US-based devices. For example, a Samsung Galaxy Note II that uses an international SIM card will not work with Google Wallet tap and pay.
