Send Or Request Money Using Google Assistant

If you haven’t setup the Google Pay account yet, not to worry, Google will take you through the process as soon as you ask the Assistant to send money to your contacts. The payments are instant and the added bonus here is that recipient doesn’t have to have a Google Pay account.

Do note, transactions with Assistant will still require authentication beyond just your voiceprint to send money — either with your fingerprint or your Google password.
