In a new development, Google has integrated its peer-to-peer payments service “Google Pay Send” into its digital payments solution “Google Pay”. This is done to make the Google Pay a one-stop destination to send and ask for money.
Other features has also been included in Google payments solution, including support for mobile ticketing for travel, movies and concerts, just like Apple Pay.
“Once your tickets are saved, you’ll find them with your loyalty cards, gift cards and offers on the Android app’s new ‘Passes’ tab. When it’s time for your event or flight, use your phone as your ticket-no printing required,” Gerardo Capiel, Director, Product Management and Consumer Payments, Google, wrote in a blog post.
“Google Pay” would be in sync with the user’s Google Account to make updating payment information about cards and accounts quicker.
“Now that you can use ‘Google Pay’ on desktop or on iOS, in stores or on transit, on your phone or with your Assistant, we’ve also made it easier to manage your payment info in the app or on the web at pay.google.com,” Capiel added.
The updated “Google Pay” is first rolling out in the US, followed by the UK.
It must be recalled that earlier this year, Google combined a host of its own payment platforms to create “Google Pay” including apps like Android Pay and Google Wallet. This is done to simplify and make a convenient and unified payments service for users.
