Google Pay App Announced, Combines Google Wallet and Android Pay

Google adds screenshot-editing tools to its Android app

Google Pay's big global rollout begins

Google Pay will also brand the autofill of bank details in Chrome, as well as the "Pay With Google" API for websites and other e-commerce.

The new service is created to work across all of Google's products, not just Android, meaning we should start to see it as a payment option on desktop websites and Google Assistant soon.

Google this week announced a new payment service that unifies Android Pay and Google Wallet into one entity.

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. The new Google Pay app also boasts of a simple interface in that it comes with just two sections - "Home" and "Cards". This is the first time Google is actively looking to protect users' privacy from idle apps. For instance, users have the option to set up Google Pay right from their own banking app as well even if they haven't installed the Google Pay app from the Play Store. This includes reward cards, debit cards, credit cards, and gift cards. It would seem that Google Pay will be stretched out to all Google items, which goes past Android. "As we continue to expand to even more devices and services, the new app offers an exciting glimpse of what's to come". Google Pay can be used for transit in locations like Portland, London, and Kiev. If you have the Android Pay app on your phone already, all you have to do it wait for the update to hit, as Google Pay has already replaced the Android Pay app, and you will see the changes that Google has made to the app with the rebranding. The redesign of Google Wallet is a good thing, especially since you will soon be able to request and send money using Google Pay once the integration happens. 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. According to Bloomberg, the new OS for Android devices will be compatible with displays similar to those from Apple's iPhone X.

It works by showing you three options to select from when you look at a notification, meaning you are able to quickly reply to the message without actually opening the app.
