As most of you know, Google often times comes off a bit odd in their decision-making to have several apps serve one purpose. It has been the case with messenger and video chat apps, and wireless payment apps too. In a move the search giant has made at CES 2018, the Android Pay and Google Wallet payment services have merged, and the result is “Google Pay.”
Since becoming a peer-to-peer payment service, following the arrival of Android Pay a year ago, Google Wallet continues to adapt in a crowded market with the arrival of automatic transfers.
Google Wallet cards are no more! However, the payment service is here to stay! Here’s all we know so far and what to expect for the future of Google Wallet.
Two weeks ago, Google Pay for web received a revamp with a refreshed design. More recently, the mobile app was treated to a major update with loads of new features that improve the end-user experience in many ways.

For a change in times, Google is making big announcements at CES. We’ve already heard about Google Pay, and now Google has announced ‘Smart Displays.’ These are essentially Google Home speakers with the Google Assistant that have a built-in display, and they’ll be made by various hardware partners. Think of them as a collection of Echo Show-like speakers, only powered by the Google Assistant and not Amazon Alexa.
