Google is going to partner with banks to start offering checking accounts. Techcrunch reported that the consumer service will begin next year.

The initial financial partners that Google is working with include Citigroup and Stanford Federal Credit Union, and their motivation per the WSJ piece appears to be seeking out and attracting younger and more digital-savvy customers who are increasingly looking to handle more of their lives through online tools. Per Sengupta’s comments, they’ll also benefit from Google’s ability to work with large sets of data and turn those into value-add products, but the Google exec also said the tech company doesn’t use Google Pay data for advertising, nor does it share that data with advertisers.

    …but the Google exec also said the tech company doesn’t use Google Pay data for advertising, nor does it share that data with advertisers….

    ROTFL
    Google has said “trust us we don’t use X for advertising nor do we share data with advertisers” many many times. Each time they had to eventually admit they did. Sometimes they were caught, admitted they did, but said they would never do it again, only to be caught doing it again.
