Following its split with Android Pay, Google Wallet has received another update this week, bringing with it support for multiple bank accounts and a new quick lock button, along with a few bug fixes, visual and behind the scenes tweaks.

The new app version number, v11.0-R234-v13, makes a big change to the way that bank accounts work with the app. Previously, users could add multiple cards to the app, but they all had to be tied to the same bank account. This is no longer the case, users can now add multiple debit and credit cards across multiple accounts, which is certainly a lot more useful for making transfers.

The app now also includes a “Lock Now” button, which can be used to quickly secure the app to prevent any fraudulent mishaps. Hitting the button will return the app to the PIN entry screen that shows up when the app launches. The button is located at the bottom of the navigation drawer, so it’s easy enough to get to without the possibility of accidentally hitting it and having to start a transfer over again.

Google Wallet should be automatically updated on your device in the coming days. Alternatively, you can downloaded the signed APK from the button below.
