Android Pay officially becomes Google Pay

Google adds screenshot-editing tools to its Android app

Despite bringing its two payment services closer together, Google Wallet isn't actually included in Google Pay for the time being. There is a "Home" area, which is where your local stores and offers are.

This came to light after media outlets noticed the code submissions on Android P's open-source rule-sets.

Google said sending money to people will soon be integrated with Google Pay but for some reasons, the facility is temporarily handled by a separate app called Google Pay Send.

Google has plans to extend payment to its Chrome browser.

The new service is created to work across all of Google's products, not just Android, meaning we should start to see it as a payment option on desktop websites and Google Assistant soon. It's also giving "a fresh coat of paint" to its seven-year-old peer-to-peer payment system, Google Wallet, now renamed Google Pay Send. It includes a user's debit, credit, and other cards information.

The layout is very Google-y, which many of us will definitely appreciate.

Google Pay can be used to pay for transit in certain cities, such as Kiev in the Ukraine, London and Portland; more cities are expected to be added in the future. The similar service to Venmo will be available in both the United Kingdom and U.S. markets, but that integration will not happen right now. However, for the moment, that option continues to be a part of Google Wallet, which has been rebranded as Google Pay Send.

But instead of being a whole new app, Reply enhances messaging notifications, making it easier to respond to messages from a variety of apps, including WhatsApp, Twitter and Slack.

The new Google Pay app aims to make sending and receiving money a simple chore anywhere in the world where Android is in use.

Just to recall, Android's Doze function restricts background app's access to network and CPU-intensive services. Users will be redirected to the service's site where they need to sign in and give permission to Google Pay.

The major aim of Android P is reportedly "improving the look of the software" to better appeal to existing iPhone users in hopes that they will make the switch over to platform of Google. Download the app on the Google Play store here. Let us know in the comment section below.
