Sending and receiving money was never this easy. In a series of other announcements that Google made at its annual developer conference, it also announced a major addition to its emailing service, which is, users can now send money as an attachment with the integration of Google Wallet and email.

According to a Huffington Post report, all that a user needs to do is hit the dollar symbol in the attachments and enter the amount. One can send money to even those who do not have a Gmail account.

This feature will be rolled out to the US Gmail users above 18 years old in the coming months. The new feature is expected to pose a threat to e-commerce companies like Venmo, which offer money transfer feature through Android and iOS apps, the report added.
