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.
During CES 2018, Google announced that Android Pay would merge with Google Wallet and be phased into Google Pay. The branding change has been occurring in bits and pieces over recent weeks, but has now gone into full effect just about everywhere. This includes the Android Pay application, which has been updated with a complete overhaul including a new user interface and Google Pay as the name.
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.
