Google Announces Google Pay, a Unified Brand for its Payment Platforms

Bringing it all together with Google Pay - Google Blog

Google today announced the launch of Google Pay and while it might sound like one, it's actually not a new mobile payments service.

Pali Bhat, VP of Product Management, Payments, concludes in the company's blog post, "Bringing everything into one brand is just the first step for Google Pay".

Fandango will now accept Google Pay for ticket purchases made online and through its app. Over the past couple of years this payment service reached the UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, Poland, Russia and Canada among many other countries.

The man, in his 60s, was rushed to hospital but later died while his companion, a woman in her mid-40s, received minor wounds to her face and both legs, Olsson said.

Google's unified payment platform is effectively like Apple Pay, a unified service that Apple customers can use on websites, apps, and in stores.

We've reached out to Google to find out if it's completely retiring the Google Wallet and Android Pay names globally, but had not heard back at time of writing. Google also said on the product page for Google Pay that the service "takes only a few mins to set up with fewer than 10 lines of code". This is Google, so don't try and understand the odd decisions they often make or you'll ruin your day. 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. It's now running some promotional offers in the USA with B&H, Fandango, and Instacart. The company is streamlining things with the new brand.
