Google recently added a new feature to Gmail on iPhone that lets you send money to anyone with an email address. It's a feature that's already been available for Android users.
That means you can quickly send someone cash — maybe to your son or daughter away at college — all in the same message that you're already planning to send.
It uses Google Pay, the company's payment service that competes with PayPal, Venmo and Apple Pay Cash. The service is really easy to use once you've linked a Google Pay account with a credit or debit card.
I'll show you how.
You need to have a Google Pay account to send and receive money through Gmail.
Now you're ready to send money using Gmail on your iPhone.
Above, you can see what it looks like when it's properly attached to your Gmail message. When it's received, the recipient will enter a bank account to transfer the money into.
