  • Google Pay Brings Android Pay and Google Wallet Under A Single Branding

If you have purchased an ebook, entered your payment information in Chrome or purchased something in a store - you know what I am talking about.

Today, we're excited to announce we'll be bringing together all the different ways to pay with Google, including Android Pay and Google Wallet, into a single brand: Google Pay.

With this new system, your payment information will be saved in your Google account and will then be available to use everywhere you use Google products. 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.

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. Google Pay aims to make it simpler for global users to pay for different services online. The company will add more websites and stores in the coming weeks.


In the past, Google has launched multiple competing services in the same space as payments, messaging (any Google Wave fans?), voice calling and even operating systems.

Early adopters of the service include Airbnb, Dice, Fandango, HungryHouse, and Instacart.

"We look forward to working with Google as they grow this exciting new payment platform". Google Pay seems like it will be its own sandbox integrated with a user's bank account, credit and debit cards. Also falling under Google Pay is Google Check out, the web-centric PayPal competitor. Android Pay is now Google's primary payment brand, but it's a bit awkward given it is branded as a platform-specific thing. Google wallet was its NFC payment system for smartphones. 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".
