First tested earlier this year, Google Pay is now allowing some users to import their data from Gmail to gain access to loyalty cards and tickets in the payments app.

The server-side update, as spotted by 9to5 Google, shows a new setting for Google Pay users on Android. The feature allows the app to pull out relevant data from their Gmail automatically and show in the payment service app.

Each added pass also alerts the user that if it is removed from Gmail, it will also be removed from Google Pay. The extent to which Google has rolled out the feature to end users is not known, but it is available to users with Google Pay version 2.86 or higher on Android.
