Square just announced Square Cash for Apple Watch, which will enable owners of the device to easily send money to their friends right from their wrist.
“The latest Square Cash release provides an even easier way to send money to friends, family or anyone nearby, freeing customers from fishing around in a pocket or purse, or unlocking their phone to send money,” a spokesperson for Square tells WebProNews. “We’re really excited about this news – providing people with more ways to make a payment no matter what device they use.”
Here’s what Square Cash looks like on the watch:
“The Square Cash app for Apple Watch conveniently complements the mobile app for iPhone,” the company says. “Square Cash for Apple Watch streamlines payments by enabling customers to easily send money using virtual stacks of cash in the form of $1, $10, $20, $50, or $100 bills with just a few simple taps on their Apple Watch. The app also provides actionable notifications, allowing the ability to approve and reject payment requests directly through the watch. Like the Square Cash app, Square Cash for Apple Watch also provides the option to send money to anyone nearby using Bluetooth LE technology, making payments quick and convenient to send. Square Cash also added the ability for anyone to sign up for Square Cash on the web, without needing to download the app.”
The Square Cash app for is available in the Apple App Store, and can be used with Apple Watch starting today. Make sure to grab the latest update.
Earlier this year, Square launched business-friendly “$Cashtags” for businesses in the U.S. to take advantage of Square Cash. Increased device support should only help businesses accept payments in more ways.
