Google further simplifies its payment processing system by fusing the best things about Android Pay and Google Wallet.
The Google Pay interface is straightforward and partitioned into two sections - Home and Card.
Some of the highlights of the new Google Pay app include a Home tab with recent purchases and nearby stores, and a Cards tab to see all of the credit, debit and gift cards you have on file.
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.
Google Pay works for transit fares in Kiev, London, and Portland at the moment, with more cities promised to come soon.
"With Google Pay, it'll be easier for Singaporeans to use the payment information saved to their Google Accounts, so they can speed through checkout with peace of mind".
At the moment, Google Pay is only available on Android.
At launch, users will be able to use the app where Android Pay was previously accepted, while existing bank perks and protections will remain in place. While it's great that Android P will be getting this feature, it would be nice if even older versions of the OS could get hold of it as well.
Google is launching a new unified payment service which goes by the name Google Pay. With the implementation of the new code in Android P, malicious apps will stand to lose the most. For other countries however, Google has not revealed any specific release dates yet.
While suggested replies can be yes or no responses if you're asked a simple question, the feature will also use its AI-based smarts for more complex queries.
