Android Pay for checkout lines, Google Wallet for sending money to your friends, and Chrome's autofill feature for online purchases.

Google is amalgamating Android Pay and Google Wallet and re-naming it Google Pay.

In a blog post, Pali Bhat, VP of Product Management, Payments said, "With Google Pay, it'll be easier for you to use the payment information saved to your Google Account, so you can speed through checkout with peace of mind".


Ars Technica highlights this baffling tendency in its report, "By our count, this is Google's fifth payment brand".

Google is simplifying the way people make mobile payments using one of its many services. It also mentioned that users will see the rebranding move across payments with friends, online retailers and stores.

Currently, Google also gives many offers on the new Google Pay service payments, including at Airbnb, Dice, Fandango, HungryHouse, Instacart, etc. Technology is giving us many reasons to ditch plain Jane cash and instead, tap to pay. Developers can go and apply to work with Google to bring "Pay" integration in their apps or website. Considering Android and Google's reach that number is expected to grow significantly.


This all-new Google Pay branding was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 event being held in Las Vegas. So, Google tried several times and finally made a decision to give us a one for all payment service. However, I bet you'll continue seeing payment kiosks with the Android Pay branding on them for years to come. With Google Tez, users can pay directly from their bank accounts which means, there's no need to open a separate account or worry about reloading wallets.

How does all of this affect Google Tez, the UPI based payments platform that Google has pushed in India?
