Google unifies its payment platforms under the new 'Google Pay' branding

Google Pay merges Android Pay and Google Wallet into one sensible app

There's Android Pay for checkout lines, Google Wallet for sending money to your friends, and Chrome's autofill feature for online purchases.

Today, we're excited to announce we'll be bringing together all the different ways to pay with Google, including Android Pay and Google Wallet, into a single brand: Google Pay.

Author of Trump dossier had concerns about Russian blackmail
Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, called last week for the Justice Department to launch a criminal inquiry into Steele. Simpson had previously declined to answer another question posed by the committee's investigators, citing "security".

"With Google Pay, it'll be easier for you to use the payment information saved to your Google Account, so you can speed through checkout with peace of mind". Google is also inviting developers to integrate Google Payment into their website and apps. It also launched Android Pay with the Wallet for payment on Android. Now, Google is streamlining all of its payment methods and apps into a single service called, you guessed it, Google Pay.

Google says that apps like Airbnb, Fandango, HungryHouse, Dice, and Instacart already support Google Pay out the gate, and many more sites and stores are rolling out updates in the coming weeks to add support for the newly-formed platform.

Acer just unveiled the thinnest laptop in the world
Additionally, the laptop also comes with built-in 4G LTE connectivity, so that users can access to high-speed internet on the go. Its fanless design is made for those who will use it in shared spaces, such as students, and it comes with an 11.6-inch display.

In a blog post, the company mentioned that they've worked hard to make shopping experiences, "experiences simpler, safer, and more consistent". Moreover, because all your details will naturally be synced to your Google account, you won't have to worry about which piece of information goes where. This is because unlike in the West, India doesn't have to deal with "n" number of payments apps ala Google. Android Pay is now Google's primary payment brand.

How does all of this affect Google Tez, the UPI based payments platform that Google has pushed in India? We are also yet to see what changes the search giant makes for its Indian Google Tez users. Android Pay was supposed to launch here at some point of time but then Google made a decision to launch a market-specific app called Tez here instead.

Confident of winning Karnataka: Rahul Gandhi
But, we are fighting on the ground. "Gujarat was BJP's fortress, but it escaped (a defeat) by the skin of its teeth", Gandhi said. The Congress chief, however, disagreed that there was a "gap" between the Congress and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
