Google rolls out unified payment app Google Pay
Internet giant Google has rolled out its new unified payment app, Google Pay, which merges its various payment services including Android.
Google first revealed plans for the unified payment app last month. It eventually plans to bring the service to all its products, including Chrome and Assistant.
“The app, which begins rolling out today, is just one part of everything we’ve got planned. We’re currently 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. We’re also working with partners online and in stores, so you’ll see Google Pay on sites, in apps, and at your favorite places around the world,” the company said in a blog.
Google Pay has now been launched in select countries including the UK and the US, enabling users to send and request money.
The app can be used to view one’s recent purchases, find nearby stores, enjoy easy access to rewards, as well as store credit and debit cards, loyalty programs, and offers.
The app will also facilitate transit in cities including Kiev, London, and Portland, with more cities to be supported later.
In addition, the firm has now renamed the Google Wallet app as Google Pay Send and redesigned it to match the Google Pay brand.
