At the beginning of January we learned that Android Pay mobile and Google Wallet were going to be unified under the name Google Pay, a new brand that will be available from today.
Android Pay will be updated during the next few hours to change its name to Google Pay with a completely redesign interface for the app.
Android Pay is now Google Pay
Google Pay is nothing more than an update to Android Pay. There is no need to reconfigure the application. After updating, all our cards will remain registered.
The new Google Pay app launches a new “Home” tab in which we will find our recent purchases, find nearby stores that accept contactless payments, our rewards along with advice on the use of the application.
Google Pay allows us to conveniently pay from our mobile with Android 4.4 Kitkat or higher with NFC in any business that accepts payments without contacts. We can also pay for compatible apps and websites.
Google Wallet is now Google Pay Send
In the future, the Google Pay application will also allow residents in the United States and in the United Kingdom to send and receive money, but while they are integrating this feature they will have to continue using the Google Wallet application, which will now be called Google Pay Send.
