The Gmail app on Android could be your new payment hub, assuming you are a fan of Google Wallet and need to send cash to people on the regular through email. Just like you have been able to on the web for some time, Google is adding an option in the Compose menu to send cash without much work. 

Once the feature hits your Gmail account, you’ll send money with Google Wallet sort of like you do an attachment. As you hit the option to “Send money,” you’ll walk through how much to send and with which account, before the task then attaches to the email you are sending. You can include memos, send cash to people who don’t even have Gmail, and let the person receiving money direct the funds to their bank account, instead of Wallet.

The two GIFs below show you exactly how this will work. Anyone get the option yet?
