Google Pay Brings Android Pay and Google Wallet Under A Single Branding

Google Pay Brings Android Pay and Google Wallet Under A Single Branding

For the rest of the things like Google's own app such as YouTube or Google Play, you will be able to sign-up for new subscriptions or buy apps using a single Google Pay account. If you have purchased an ebook, entered your payment information in Chrome or purchased something in a store - you know what I am talking about.

Google is merging Android Pay with Google Wallet, introducing a unified payment service called Google Pay. The tech giant is looking to expand its brand name, and naming its products and services with the Google logo is one sure way to make that happen. He said the products being brought together include Android Pay (Google's mobile payments and loyalty platform) and Google Wallet (its peer-to-peer payments app). Google Pay aims to make it simpler for worldwide users to pay for different services online.

Google says "over the coming weeks, you'll see Google Pay online, in store, and across Google products, as well as when you're paying friends".

In a blog post, the company mentioned that they've worked hard to make shopping experiences, "experiences simpler, safer, and more consistent".




The company says Google Pay is already available on Airbnb, Dice, Fandango, HungryHouse, Instacart, and other popular apps and websites. Moreover, because all your details will naturally be synced to your Google account, you won't have to worry about which piece of information goes where.

This all-new Google Pay branding was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 event being held in Las Vegas. Considering Android and Google's reach that number is expected to grow significantly.

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

How does all of this affect Google Tez, the UPI based payments platform that Google has pushed in India?
