MOUNTAIN VIEW, California — This week, Google rolled out its all the new Google Pay app for Android. With Google Pay, you get helpful info while you are shopping from all of its payment systems combined into one single app. Google Pay’s new Home tab gives you the info you need, right when you need it. See your recent purchases, find nearby stores, enjoy easy access to rewards, and get helpful tips.
“We give developers a very simple API to implement Google Pay,” Google’s VP of Product Management for Payments, Pali Bhat, noted. “The API is simple because we are not processing that payment. We just securely pass the credentials to whoever is doing it.” Apps like DoorDash, Airbnb, Hotel Tonight and others already support this feature today.

In addition, according to Tech Crunch, Google is also launching a redesign of the Google Wallet app for sending and requesting money, and it’s now called Google Pay Send. Users in the U.S. and U.K., though, will also soon be able to use the Google Pay app for sending and requesting money. New users can download the Google Pay app today and existing Android Pay users will get updated over the course of the next few days.
Like all Google products, Google Pay comes with strong security protections to safeguard your account and personal data from security threats. In other words, it’s got your back.
