According to the source, Google adds that it expects US-based users will be able to send money to people in more than 200 countries and territories through Wester Union and to 80 more countries through Wise.
Google said in a blog post that Western Union will offer unlimited free transfers when sending money with Google Pay until June 16. On the other hand, Wise will make the first transfer free for new customers on transfers up to $500.
To send money internationally, start by searching for the Google Pay user you want to send money to, tap “Pay,” and select either Western Union or Wise.
