Google combines all its payment services under Google Pay

Google combines all its payment services under Google Pay

Google, in all its infinite wisdom, is yet to come up with a single, unified platform for payments. Called Google Pay, the service will provide the same feature set as users already experience when paying for things with their Android phones. Through Google Pay, it is possible to send and receive money from/to your friends/colleagues/family apart from shopping payments. Apparently Google Pay combines all these former stabs at the universal smartphone payment system. At the core, Google Pay is simply a combination of Android Pay and Google Wallet. You might remember previous payment solutions Google has offered through the years such as Android Pay and Google Wallet. Lastly, Instacart orders of at least $35 completed with Google Pay by January 16 score $10 markdowns.

Fire at Trump Tower injures one
The fire started around 7 a.m.at the Manhattan building that contains President Donald Trump's home and business offices. Smoke billowed from one corner of the high-rise for a while before most of it dissipated.

In the coming weeks, Google says Google Pay will be found online, in stores and across other Google products. Now, it has been rebranded for the third time, as Google Pay - a branding Google (and we) hopes sticks. So while the core functionality of those services won't necessarily be changing, the payment process as a whole should be a lot more straight forward under the Google Pay umbrella. Sites like Airbnb, Fandango and Instacart have already started accepting it. The unified Google Pay brand will also help Google advance its platform more quickly, without needing to worry about maintaining two separate apps.
