Google Merges Android Pay and Wallet Services- Introduces Google Pay

Bringing it all together with Google Pay - Google Blog

It's joining with Airbnb, Dice, HungryHouse, and Instacart in the launch of a revamped Google Pay - touted as bringing together Google's various payment platforms, including Android Pay and Google Wallet, under one unified service. The fruit of that work is the new Google Pay platform. That changed in 2015, when Google chose to spin off the tap-and-pay portion of the service into Android Pay. Perhaps Tez too will be branded as Google Pay, even though it is not the same as Google Wallet or Android Pay as it uses the UPI payment system made in India.

More news: Wintry Mix Possible Sunday

Most of Fandango's users - some 81% of those surveyed - already use some form of digital payment, so Google Pay presents another payment option. Google announced that it's consolidating all platforms under the Google Pay banner. Anyone that has ever paid for something in the real-world with Android Pay, purchased an app on Google Play or used Chrome to automatically fill in payment details is familiar with Google's fragmented payments ecosystem. Now, it has been rebranded for the third time, as Google Pay - a branding Google (and we) hopes sticks. Google says you'll see Google Pay online, in-store, and across Google products, as well as when you're paying friends. Over the past couple of years this payment service reached the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, Poland, Russia and Canada among many other countries.
