Rash7774 Yeah, it looks like it.
Do we have any recommended alternatives to Google Wallet ? I am asking from curiosity only.
Maybe something from F-Droid?
It will be great to have NFC payment working on GrapheneOS, but ... as I read posts, that is not the option right now.
Rash7774 It would be amazing to have contactless payment on GrapheneOS, but google be doing google things :(
If you only want to store QR-code based tickets and passes, try PassAndroid. It works with all tickets coming as pkpass-files.
By the way: I can confirm that NFC-based payment with GrapheneOS works in general. I'm using my bank's Payment-app, which does not use the Google Wallet or Google Pay. I'm in Europe, so changing to my bank is probably not an option for most of you ;-)
214b9821 How does it work for you?
[deleted] NFC Payments work fine. It's Google Pay that requires a certified OS, not contactless payments in general. They're using their bank's app which provides contactless payments via their own system instead of falling back to Google Pay.
matchboxbananasynergy Oh I see, thanks for clarifying <3
That's right. It was interesting for me to learn that Android supports setting a default payment-app (just like it allows for setting the default browser). So, payment for me even works without opening my bank's app.
Is there a dedicated device one could setup to use with Google wallet or similar? Program an nfc chip you could enclose in your phone case that keeps all your cards info?
User99191 A Pixel Watch or similar could be what you want?
Google Wallet will NOT load for me. I just get the spinning circle.
Wallet has network permissions granted.
Google Play Services has Network/SMS/Phone permissions granted.
spiral What about Play Store? Does it at least have network permission?
Some permission I gave to Wallet made it work, I think it was SMS. Sorry I can't remember now exactly which it was.
matchboxbananasynergy was hoping for something that could be as if I was only traveling with my phone like a super nfc credit card (that I can put in my phone case) that I can program and aggregate all the cards with or that I could run Google Wallet thru.
matchboxbananasynergy I'm considering installing grapheneos and for now the thing that stop me is google wallet, I have a pixel watch, but I don't think I could add my cards without the working app on the device
I have a few questions I could not find in this or any related thread:
My banking app works with GOS and it has contactless payment through Google Pay
I already have a throwaway Google account for sandboxed Play store.
WoollyNeedle How will adding my card information to my banking app / Google Pay affect my privacy?
I think if you were using Google Pay you would be revealing your identity and location and spending habits to Google. But I think Google Pay refuses to run on GrapheneOS because it is not a trusted platform.
pietro395 You would be better staying with Google.
pietro395 Pixel Watch can work independently of the phone. Unsure if that's only for the LTE variant or not, but I do know that it's possible to setup Pixel Watch in a way where it can handle payments independently and people who use GrapheneOS can use their watch to make payments without issues.
