In the post, Pali Bhat, VP of Product Management, Payments at Google said, "If you've ever paid for groceries with Android Pay, used Chrome to automatically fill in your payment info, or purchased an app on Google Play, then you've already experienced some of the ways Google helps you pay for things online and in stores". For those unaware, Tez is a UPI-based payments system by Google that was launched in India in September previous year. The merger is aimed at making all payments across Google and on third party services more simple and safer. Google says you'll see Google Pay everywhere in the coming weeks, and it's already accepted on sites like Airbnb, Dice, Fandango, HungryHouse, and Instacart.
But the new system Google Pay brings all this under one umbrella, which the company says should make buying and paying through Google much less confusing.
Does the simplification of Google's various payment services ease your mind? Now, the Google has announced a new payment system named Google Pay. If you're a developer interested in adding Google Pay to your product, you can check out more information here.
"We look forward to working with Google as they grow this exciting new payment platform".
The P2P money sending platform Google Wallet's all of the features are implemented in the Google Pay system, at the same time with all capabilities of Android Pay. Instead, Google opted to go a different path by launching Google Tez, an app that now lets you make bill payments. Android Pay was supposed to launch here at some point of time but then Google chose to launch a market-specific app called Tez here instead.
With today's change, it also means the ultimate death of Google Wallet as we know it.
