Google is Merging Android Pay and Google Wallet into a Single Service

Google is Merging Android Pay and Google Wallet into a Single Serviceā€

Google has announced that it is collating all its payment systems, primarily Google Wallet and Android Pay, under one brand called Google Pay.

If you've ever paid for groceries with Android Pay, used Chrome to automatically fill in your payment info, or purchased an app on Google Play, then you've already experienced some of the ways Google helps you pay for things online and in stores. And the same changes will come to Google Tez, an Indian payment application that's akin to Android Pay. While the Android Pay branding will switch over to Google Pay and the Google Wallet app will likely get a redesign and a new icon (or perhaps it will become integrated into a single Google Pay app), all of your saved credit card and banking accounts should seamlessly make the move. 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. Google introduced Android Pay in 2015 and spent millions promoting that name as its wallet for in-store purchases. Those include Airbnb, Dice, Fandango, HungryHouse and Instacart.

British Gmail users can now send money to each other using Google's mail service.
