Google Pay begins rollout across the globe

Google Pay begins rollout across the globeā€

The app essentially has two sections - a "Home" section which shows a host of useful information, including recent payment activity, nearby participating stores and shops, rewards information, and tips (all displayed in Google's trademark cards), and a new "Cards" tab that holds all the information about your individual credit, debit, reward, and gift cards.

Today seems to be the day we say goodbye to Android Pay for good, as the website is now redirecting to the Google Pay site, four new YouTube videos have been released, and the Android Pay and Google Wallet apps are getting rebranded. Everything Android Pay offered is still there including all your linked cards, the ability to pay for things in supported stores.

"We're now working on bringing Google Pay to all Google products, so whether you're shopping on Chrome or with your Assistant, you'll have a consistent checkout experience using the cards saved to your Google Account", announced Google in a blog post. The latest one they're testing out is a redesign of the bottom bar for easier access to the in-app shortcuts that you may need when making a call. According to the announcement, the app on Android will have all the existing features of Android Pay plus some additional ones, including an extra layer of security as Google Pay wont share the user's card number at POS. But in today's market, where Venmo and the gig economy are demonstrating the value of personal payments, Google realized a need to bring P-to-P back. And we can, apparently, expect to see Google partner with a lot more online and in-store brands in the future. Meanwhile, Google Wallet has been renamed to Google Pay Send and will be integrated with the main app soon.

In January, Google announced Google Pay, an umbrella brand for its mobile and web payments platforms.

Teenager Wins First US Gold Medal at Pyeongchang Olympics
Gerard becomes the youngest U.S. snowboarder to win an Olympic medal since the sport made its Games debut at Nagano 1998. Gerard tried the sport as a toddler then took it up with a passion aged eight when his family moved closer to the snow.

The new feature is available in version 7.21 of the Google app.

Google has finally started rolling out Google Pay to the users with an updated app for Android. Just choose Google Pay at checkout and pay with a few quick clicks instead. Users in the USA and United Kingdom, though, will also soon be able to use the Google Pay app for sending and requesting money.

You can also send/receive money to/from your friends via Google Pay.
