Google launches Google Pay mobile payment service

After years of brainstorming - Google finally has had the genius idea of unifying both these platforms under a single brand.

There's a new name for all of Google's mobile payment platforms, and it's one the company probably should have settled on a while ago.

It wouldn't be surprising to anticipate that, in the future, consumers might be use Google Pay to purchase tickets ofter watching a movie trailer on YouTube. That changed in 2015, when Google made a decision to spin off the tap-and-pay portion of the service into Android Pay. The merger is aimed at making all payments across Google and on third party services more simple and safer.

You may have already seen Google Pay branding in the wild as it is now featured on Airbnb, HungryHouse, Instacart, Dice and Fandango. Lastly, Instacart orders of at least $35 completed with Google Pay by January 16 score $10 markdowns.

"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's Pali Bhat explained.

It's already available on Airbnb, Dice, HungryHouse, Instacart, Fandango and other apps and websites.

Google has announced it's creating a more unified way of paying for things online and in-store. Starting today, Android Pay and Google Wallet will henceforth be combined into the all-encompassing Google Pay. Have you noticed the Google Pay branding yet?
