Softcard itself may be folding rather than technically transferring to Google.
After several weeks of rumors, Google has announced their partnership with Softcard. The purpose of this venture is to combine forces with Google Wallet, which has been around since 2011 but never enjoyed wide usage. With Apple Pay having recently entered the fray, Google apparently felt the time is now to get their service back on the map.
Official: Google Acquires Softcard’s Technology, Wallet Will Be Preloaded On AT&T, T-Mobile, And Verizon was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
