In the Wallet app for Android smartphones, Google has apparently been beta testing compatibility for the “Digital Driver’s License.”
Users who are participating in the Google Play Services beta programme (particularly, version 48.22) and are using Android 8.0 (or later) are eligible, according to Google’s revised support website.
When adding a new card to the Google Wallet app, you should now see a new option for “ID Card (beta)” after activating Bluetooth and Nearby Devices and making sure your phone has a smell lock, it was further said.
A slide that displayed Maryland as the first ID accessible for the future functionality was shown during Google’s developer-focused I/O conference in May, according to the source.
In order to add the digital identification capability to its Wallet app, Apple included compatibility for Maryland state IDs and driving licences in May 2022.
This allowed State citizens to use their iPhone or Apple Watch at certain checkpoints for participating airports in the US, according to the article.
Users will need to scan the front and back of the card, film a brief video of the user’s face, submit the application, and then wait for the State to accept the card before adding a digital ID card to the Wallet app, the report said.
