Google Pay: Google brings Android Pay and Google Wallet under single brand

Not only does it bring your Android Pay and Google Wallet apps together, it also brings in Chrome's autofill payment info in consideration.

With Google Pay, the company ensures their Android users the easiest method of money sending, receiving, paying out with saved information on their Google accounts. The tech giant is looking to expand its brand name, and naming its products and services with the Google logo is one sure way to make that happen.

Google Pay definitely sounds better as a way to unite the company's payment solutions.

Google's unified payment platform is effectively like Apple Pay, a unified service that Apple customers can use on websites, apps, and in stores.

"Over the coming weeks, you'll see Google Pay online, in store, and across Google products, as well as when you're paying friends", said Bhat.

At the moment, Google Pay is already available on Airbnb, Dice, Fandango, HungryHouse, Instacart, and more.

We'll get answers to those questions soon enough, but most importantly, it seems that users don't need to sign up for a new service. Moreover, because all your details will naturally be synced to your Google account, you won't have to worry about which piece of information goes where.

"We look forward to working with Google as they grow this exciting new payment platform". Google Wallet was the first NFC payment system for smartphones, and later it was rebranded to Android Pay with the Wallet sticking around as a P2P payment system.

According to Juniper Research, only 24 million people used Android Pay in 2017, compared with 34 million for Samsung Pay and 86 million for Apple Pay. Over the past couple of years this payment service reached the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, Poland, Russia and Canada among many other countries.
