Google is combining its payments ecosystem into one service called Google Pay

Posted Января 09, 2018

One of the biggest questions that many Google users have often pondered upon is - why does Google have two apps which do pretty much the same thing - Google Wallet and Android Pay. This includes Chrome for web purchases, YouTube for renewing subscriptions, in-app purchases on Android, and even retail outlets with NFC payments. But soon, "over the coming weeks", Google says it will merge the various ways it gobbles up this information under a new umbrella called Google Pay. Now, the Google has announced a new payment system named Google Pay. We're not betting that Google is going to be able to streamline all digital payments with Google Pay, but it sure would be nice if Android had a single method for buying stuff. Google says you'll see Google Pay online, in-store, and across Google products, as well as when you're paying friends.

Android Pay is one the most popular and widely used smartphone-based secure payment systems. "The lack of unity and consistent messaging has created challenges for consumers in understanding which Google payment product to use, not to mention how and where to use it", said Jordan McKee, principal analyst for payments with 451 Research.

Google boasted on its blog that Google Pay is supported by a handful of services today, including Airbnb and Fandango. Have you noticed the Google Pay branding yet?

While the branding was unveiled at the CES 2018 event, many users had reportedly been getting this update days in advance as they were already seeing the Google Pay logo on their phones while making payments.
