It looks like the Wallet app for Windows 10 Mobile is in for an overhaul, according to a new leak. As reported by WindowsBlogItalia, the Wallet app will receive an updated design, icon and a few new features in version 2.0. You can take a look at some of the changes in the Wallet app in the screenshot gallery below.
Here's the changelog so far, translated from Italian:
- New GUI .
- Added the ability to place loyalty cards and membership cards (plus the ability to download apps from the Windows Store to add to Microsoft Wallet).
- Added the ability to scan a barcode .
- Inserting a card you can now choose a category (restaurants, bars, entertainment, feed them, gym, library, pharmacy or store), the company name, the name of merchant registration ID .
- Added the ability to add a color
- New icon for the tile
Now matter how you slice it, this is a much needed update to an app that could use some attention. It isn't clear on when we could expect to see Wallet 2.0 land, but it's possible that it may come along with this summer's Anniversary Update.
