Wallet on Windows 10 Mobile to get a new look

According to reports, the Wallet app for Windows 10 Mobile is going to receive a significant update. Version 2.0 will bring an all-new design, along with a number of new features.

Among them is the ability to add colors to cards, a new icon for the tile, and more. You can also now add a card by scanning a barcode.

WindowsBlogItalia has provided a full change log (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 the merchant and the registration ID.

  • Added the ability to add a color.

  • New icon for the tile.

The addition of support for loyalty cards came back in December 2015, so that part is nothing new. You should now be able to organize them better now, as categories are added.

The new Wallet will be a welcome change from the old app, which has been largely forgotten by Windows phone users. Of course, Microsoft's plans for the app aren't immediately clear, as rumors of a mobile payments solution have been swirling for over a year.

It's also not clear when this new update will launch, although it's likely to come with the Anniversary Update; however, it's still not available in the Insider Preview build that we received yesterday.
