Google Pay will be able to store and show COVID-19 immunization cards on Android around the end of June 2021. People can now add this COVID Card to their Android phones in more nations and states.

DESCRIBE THE ANDROID COVID CARD. Directly integrated into Android devices that support Google Play services is this COVID Card mechanism ( Play Protect certified ). The procedure is quite similar to saving a boarding card for a flight, a transport fare, or a concert/event ticket using Google Pay.

When venues, restaurants, etc. need to check your immunization status, it’s designed to give quick access, frequently from your homescreen.

ADDING A COVID CARD TO ANDROID: HOW TO? You can enter the required information on a mobile website or app to retrieve a COVID-19 immunization record from your national provider, or from a sanctioned third-party equivalent. To download the data to your device, click the Save to Phone option.

For reasons of security, adding the COVID Card and all subsequent access attempts require a password, PIN, or biometric unlock. The data is not uploaded to the cloud, according to Google, and you must go through the process again for each device. The card can be erased at any time in the meantime.

Once saved, it can be accessed without a cellular or Wi-Fi connection and is exclusively accessible on that specific phone. It can be accessed via a homescreen shortcut or the soon-to-be-released Google Wallet. The system that is integrated into Play services as well as both the new and old apps are included in this.

EXAMPLE CARDS 8/21/2021: Initially, California’s Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record gave residents a screenshot and the equivalent of their CDC card as a QR code. A large Save to phone button with the Google G logo will now appear when you provide your name, date of birth, phone number or email connected with your paper vaccination record, along with the other requirements.

You will then be directed to the (old) Google Pay to confirm and asked to create a shortcut for your home screen.
