You can also pay transit fare with Google Pay in certain cities, and you can choose Google Pay at checkout rather than filling out payment forms.

If you're using Google Pay to pay online or in an app, look for a button or option that says "Buy with GPay" (you can also select older Android Pay/Google Wallet logos/options).

Android assigns a UID (User ID) to every app that a user installs on their device, and this new feature is based on this only. But Google Pay does not do everything Google Wallet used to do - or at least, not yet.

For example, the app can link with your Google Calendar to send automatic replies when you are on vacation. It may stick around "for a few months", which is how long Google reckons it will take to fold P2P payments into Google Pay. To line up with that transition, the Google Wallet app will become Google Pay Send so you won't be without functionality until everything settles in. If you already have the Android Pay app installed on your phone, all you have to do it wait for the update to hit and you will see all of the changes that Google has made to the app with the rebranding.

According to Google, Tez has handled 140 million transactions in its first ten weeks and has more than 525,000 businesses signed on to accept payments. And the Cards tab provides a hub for information about all of a user's credit and debit cards, active gift cards, and loyalty programs. The new service integrates these functions and adds more. For example, users in the U.S. or United Kingdom should be able to send and request money in the next few months. We know that it'll have a built-in call recorder, let carriers manipulate how the signal bar is calibrated and most recently, deny camera access to apps running in the background.

Of course, we should note that you might want to disable side-loading after you install Reply, as keeping this feature always enabled leaves your device opened to the installation of malware. That allows the app to pop up with locations and stores where Google Pay is accepted near you. Even better, you can use GPay across all of your devices and many Google products.
