Google is making Google Pay its go to app for purchases. The app, which begins rolling out today, will bring Google Pay to all Google products, so whether you’re shopping on Chrome or with your Assistant, you’ll have a consistent checkout experience using the cards saved to your Google Account. Soon you’ll see Google Pay on sites, in apps, and at your favorite places around the world. I just posted an offer for Google Pay earlier today, for $20 credit at Via. You can also already use Google Pay on transit in cities such as Kiev, London, and Portland (with more coming soon).
Google Pay’s new Home tab gives you the info you need, right when you need it. See your recent purchases, find nearby stores, enjoy easy access to rewards, and get helpful tips.
The Cards tab is an easy way to keep everything you need at checkout organized and at the ready. It’s where you’ll store your credit and debit cards, loyalty programs, offers, and even that stack of gift cards from last year’s birthday.
Like all Google products, Google Pay comes with strong security protections to safeguard your account and personal data from security threats.
What’s even more interesting is that in the U.S. or the UK, you’ll be able to use it to send and request money within the next few months. In the meantime, the Wallet app is now called Google Pay Send. I don’t expect it to be much different though once it is incorporated into Google Pay.
