What that means is users familiar with Google Wallet and Android Pay will see both services fall under the new moniker. He said the products being brought together include Android Pay (Google's mobile payments and loyalty platform) and Google Wallet (its peer-to-peer payments app).

The payment information will be saved in your Google account and will be available across all Google Products including Chrome web purchase, YouTube purchase for subscription, in-app purchase on Android apps, and at retail stores with NFC. "Over the coming weeks, you'll see Google Pay online, in-store, and across Google products, as well as when you're paying friends", Pali Bhat, the VP of Product Management from Google's Payments teams said in a blog post.

Google is simplifying the way people make mobile payments using one of its many services. So far, Google pay is already enabled for Airbnb, Dice, Fandango, HungryHouse and Instacart, along with other apps and websites. The unified Google Pay brand will also help Google advance its platform more quickly, without needing to worry about maintaining two separate apps. Technology is giving us many reasons to ditch plain Jane cash and instead, tap to pay. Through Google Pay, it is possible to send and receive money from/to your friends/colleagues/family apart from shopping payments. Did you pay it any attention? The company's post only makes a brief and vague mention that "We will also be bringing these experiences to Tez users in India-stay tuned".

All of these activities and efforts, according to Bhat will now be merged into one brand called Google Pay.

"But in 2017, Google's service trailed seriously behind its competitors - Samsung Pay and Apple Pay, according to Juniper Research and payments industry site PYMNTs".
