Eligible devices for use with Google Wallet
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.
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.
