Google’s Gmail app for iOS now allows users to send and request money via Google Pay. Users can send money to anyone with an email address, and the payments will be sent and received via an attachment. Those who want to use this feature will need to download the latest version of the app.

To send money in Gmail, open the app on your iPhone or iPad, then tap "compose.” In the top right corner, tap “attach,” then select “send money,” and follow the instructions. If you’re requesting money, just select the request money option and follow the prompts.

If someone has sent you money for the first time, open the message and tap “transfer” to bank, then add the debit card you want your money transferred to. If you’re on iOS, you can also send money via the Google Pay Send App. Google says you can send up to $9,999 in one transaction or up to $10,000 in seven days. The money feature is available in the US. Google says it’s working to roll out this feature to other countries in the future.

Today’s update also notes the addition of a snooze function, meaning you can now snooze emails you can’t deal with until later. This was previously introduced in Gmail’s new redesign last month and has been available for some users since then.
