Continuing with its policy of "fragmentation and consolidation", Googleannounced that it is merging Google Wallet, Android Pay and a myriad of other services under a single platform. Users will be able to save their payment information in their Google account. It's a bit confusing, but Google is streamlining its payment branding today with the launch of Google Pay.
While the branding was unveiled at the CES 2018 event, many users had reportedly been getting this update days in advance as they were already seeing the Google Pay logo on their phones while making payments.
"Over the coming weeks, you'll see Google Pay online, in store, and across Google products, as well as when you're paying friends", said Bhat.
In a company blog post, VP of product management for payments Pali Bhat described this as more of a rebranding than a change to the underlying products or technology. So, Google tried several times and finally made a decision to give us a one for all payment service.
