  • Google Combines Google Wallet and Android Pay to Launch Google Pay

Google has announced that it is merging its Android Pay and Google Wallet into a new service called Google Pay.

With Google Pay, the company ensures their Android users the easiest method of money sending, receiving, paying out with saved information on their Google accounts.

Google Pay should make payments hassle-free in the West, although it looks like Google probably won't be bringing it to India anytime soon. It also launched Android Pay with the Wallet for payment on Android. Google Pay aims to make it simpler for worldwide users to pay for different services online. "Over the coming weeks, you'll see Google Pay online, in store, and across Google products, as well as when you're paying friends".

The company says Google Pay is already available on Airbnb, Dice, Fandango, HungryHouse, Instacart, and other popular apps and websites. If you're a developer interested in adding Google Pay to your product, you can check out more information here. Considering Android and Google's reach that number is expected to grow significantly. While the app can be installed on a variety of Android phones and watches, it still possesses one basic function: making payments at compatible cash registers via "tap-and-pay".




Google rebrands yet another service.

.

"But in 2017, Google's service trailed seriously behind its competitors - Samsung Pay and Apple Pay, according to Juniper Research and payments industry site PYMNTs". The existing Android Pay users will receive an update with Google Pay features and logo change.

Built on the government-supported Unified Payments Interface (UPI), Tez allows users to make payments straight from their bank accounts.

"Google has explored various ways of enabling digital payments since 2011 when it first released Google Wallet", he said.
