  • Google Pay

Google has announced that it is merging its Android Pay and Google Wallet into a new service called Google Pay.

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.

From there, as Pali Bhat, the VP of product management and payments, puts it, "you can speed through checkout with peace of mind".

This should make making purchases and payments through Google less confusing - if you've saved your payment information on your Google account, you don't have to worry which app to use to access that information, because it's all under Google Pay now.

Assassin's Creed Origins' First Expansion Coming Soon, New Free Quest Joins It
For starters, there'll be a new title update for Assassin's Creed Origins released alongside The Hidden Ones . Players will also be able to fight Anubis and Sobek, from January 9-16 and January 23-30 respectively.

Some of the companies already onboard include Airbnb, Dice, Fandango, HungryHouse, and Instacart.

"If you've ever paid for groceries with Android Pay, used Chrome to automatically fill in your payment info, or purchased an app on Google Play, then you've already experienced some of the ways Google helps you pay for things online and in stores", he wrote. Also falling under Google Pay is Google Check out, the web-centric PayPal competitor. There are also stores and companies that have migrated to the new moniker.

"By supporting Google Pay, we are enabling our customers around the world to quickly and simply integrate the new services into their websites and apps, thereby streamlining the online checkout process". 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. If you're a developer interested in adding Google Pay to your product, you can check out more information here. We are also yet to see what changes the search giant makes for its Indian Google Tez users. Google Pay and Apple Pay are now set to dominate all the payments.
