What happened to Google Wallet? Like Google +, it has struggled to gain major traction in the crowded world of tech.

Google debuted the mobile payments system in 2011 and was looking to become the dominant mobile payments app, taking on rivals like PayPal.

So what's the deal? Google announced that buyers can now use PayPal in the Play store to purchase apps, games, music, movies, and nothing else.

From UPI:

While it can be seen as an admission that people aren't fully accepting Google's own checkout service, the company seems to have realized they want as many users to buy as many apps, movies and games as possible, which is why the company has expanded payment options to credit cards and gift cards as well.

Could this move signal the beginning of the end of Google? Let me know what you think by posting in the comments below.
