The company made the initial announcement via blog post. The company also confirmed that there will not be fees or minimum balance requirements in order to set up the automatic transfer. Google also touted the “Fraud Protection Guarantee” which will cover any fraudulent transactions that occur. Users will also be able to set up low balance alerts.
