Google has been reportedly beta testing support for the “Digital Driver`s License” in the Wallet app for Android handsets. According to Google’s updated support page, “users running Android 8.0 (or later) who are in the Google Play Services beta program (specifically, version 48.22) are eligible,” reports.
In the month of May 2022, Apple introduced support for Maryland state IDs and driver licenses in its Wallet app to gain the digital identification feature.
With this, residents of the State could use their iPhone or Apple Watch at certain checkpoints for participating airports in the US, said the report.
It further added, “After enabling Bluetooth and Nearby Devices, and also making sure your phone has a scent lock, you should now see a new option for “ID Card (beta)” when adding a new card to the Google Wallet app.” The feature was announced during Google’s developer-focused I/O keynote in May, when a slide showed US State Maryland as the first ID available for the upcoming feature, according to the report.
To add a digital ID card to the Wallet app, users scan the front of the card, then the back, take a quick face shot, submit an application, and finally wait for the state to accept the card. is needed.
