The Android Pay name has been dead for weeks, replaced by Google Pay for the foreseeable future. With the rebranding out of the way and the adjustment period starting to fade, it's time to get back to business as usual. The latest update looks a bit like a bug fixer since there don't appear to be any immediately visible changes after installing. However, a teardown gives a view of a new feature coming for prepaid accounts that will ensure they never run low on funds.
Google Pay is an Android app, successor to Android Pay – Google's mobile payment service. It allows you to save credit, debit, and gift cards on your device, which you can then use to make payments in various places. In an attempt to popularise its new-old payment service, Google has launched a new promotion. Each time you refer a new user to Google Pay and he or she makes their first payment, both of you will get 10 bucks to spend on Google Play Store purchases. You can invite people up to 10 times for a total of $100.
It's been almost three months since Android Pay was replaced by Google Pay, but the new name still sounds so foreign. In an attempt to alleviate that and introduce more users, Google is running a promotion in which you and someone you refer both get $10 in Play credit once the referred party makes a purchase. Bear in mind that this promo is still running (and ends at the same time).
Google Assistant can do a great many things and now it can help you send and receive money just with voice commands. Google has updated its artificial intelligence-powered assistant with Google Pay integration, enabling users to send and receive money effortlessly using voice commands. Don’t fret if you’ve never heard of Google Pay before, it’s just the new moniker that the company gave Android Pay not too long ago when it decided to unify all of its payment platforms under the Google Pay branding.
“Hey Google, send Brian $15 for breakfast today.” Starting today, you can use this command to tell the Google Assistant on your phone to send money to people with Google Pay, the re-branded version of what you may still think of as Android Pay. And if Brian, as usual, forgets to pay you back, you
There are a lot of options for mobile payments. Friends settling monetary scores can use Google Wallet, Paypal, or Venmo, among a larger list of services. Wells Fargo is even desperately trying to act like Zelle is a thing. But starting today, anyone using Google Assistant can send their buds a verbal $20 bill for last night's bar tab. That's because Google Pay (née Android Pay) is now integrated into the Assistant.
After Google folded Android Pay and Google Wallet into one app, Google Pay, the company is now looking to expand its functionality beyond being a convenient checkout method. There have been rumors for some time now, that the company intends to introduce transit ticket support in the app, and in typical Google fashion, it is now seeing a staged roll-out.
Earlier this year, Google rolled Android Pay and Google Wallet into one service called Google Pay. Now, Google is adding transit tickets to its newly unified mobile payments app. Starting today, riders will be able to board the Las Vegas Monorail using Google Pay on Android phones. Google says more cities and transportation services are on the way.
Google has announced a new service that lets travelers use Google Pay in conjunction with prepaid virtual travel passes. Google revealed in January that it was combining Android Pay and Google Wallet under the new Google Pay brand, and the big global rollout began last month. While Google Pay can already be used to pay for public transport
Google Pay (combination of Google Wallet and Android Pay) was officially available on Wear OS (formerly Android Wear) only in a couple of markets so far: the US and the UK. That changes now, as the service has expanded to three more countries, including Spain, Australia, and Canada.
It's been a busy year so far for Google's payment platforms, especially since Android Pay, Google Wallet, and Chrome's payment autofill feature were unified under new Google Pay branding. Previous Android Pay functionality is unchanged in the app, which allows you to add payment options from a wide range of banks and credit unions.
