Google Pay launched, will be coming to Google Tez in India

Google Pay launched, will be coming to Google Tez in India Google Pay launched, will be coming to Google Tez in India

The newly introduced itself is the combo of Android Pay and Google Wallet services.

"With Google Pay, it'll be easier for you to use the payment information saved to your Google Account, so you can speed through checkout with peace of mind", VP of Product Management, Payments writes on Google's official blog. The tech giant is looking to expand its brand name, and naming its products and services with the Google logo is one sure way to make that happen. While Google Wallet evolved into Android Pay, the service didn't make as much sense on Chrome OS. Consolidating the two services should enable people to link their credit or debit card to a single Google Pay account and either pay for groceries or send money to a friend as a birthday gift. It also mentioned that users will see the rebranding move across payments with friends, online retailers and stores. The company will add more websites and stores in the coming weeks.

Currently, Google also gives many offers on the new Google Pay service payments, including at Airbnb, Dice, Fandango, HungryHouse, Instacart, etc.


Google was the first to bring mobile NFC payments to phones, which it called Google Wallet.

All said and done, digital payment efforts by either Google or Apple in India didn't seem to have taken off as expected. Android Pay is now Google's primary payment brand. Instead, Google opted to go a different path by launching Google Tez, an app that now lets you make bill payments. Also, the same changes are supposed to reflect in Google Tez UPI (Unified Payment Interface) app launched in India.

The impact on you at home: Google Pay may be replacing Android Pay on our phones to streamline the experience, but it doesn't simplify the Android digital payments landscape in the slightest.
