Google continues to phase out Android Pay in favour of Google Pay

Google is phasing out its Android Pay service on mobile devices starting this week, as it continues to focus on the new 'Google Pay' brand. Google Pay allows users to make transactions in ways that don’t necessarily involve a device, such as carrying out PayPal-like purchases on websites. The shift will also see the Google Wallet service, which allows individuals to send or receive funds, become part of Google Pay “within the next few months”. For now, the Android Pay and Google Wallet apps have been superseded by one app called Google Pay and another called Google Pay Send.

Fresh coat of paint

The Google Pay app is a rebranded version of Android Pay, with new features including a new home page and cards page. The new home page shows a personalised list of nearby shops that accept Google Pay, along with a list of recent purchases. Google Pay Send is simply Google Wallet with “a fresh coat of paint”, Google said. The company said it plans to add Google Pay Send’s features to the main Google Pay app within the next few months for users in the UK and the US.

Services such as Google Pay, Apple Pay and Samsung Pay allow users to store information for making payments, loyalty schemes and transit networks in their mobile device and access those systems with the gadget’s contactless features, eliminating the need to juggle multiple cards. Google’s system can do wonderous things, like working on the London Underground, for instance, and is also compatible with transit systems in Kiev and Portland, Oregon. London’s transport system also supports Apple Pay and Samsung Pay. Samsung’s version can even function while the device is switched off, unlike the other two. Google Pay also allows individuals to use the same information stored in their Google account to make online transactions.

Google Rebrands Android Pay as Google Pay

Google is uniting its mobile and online payment systems under the brand: Google Pay. The company announced it's going to umbrella all their financial platforms. “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,” Pali Bhat, Google’s vice president of product management and payments said. Android Pay was launched in the UK in May 2016. The rebrand decision may be an effort to create direct competition with their rivals, Apple Pay.

You can now add your PayPal Business Debit Mastercard to Android Pay

Finally, you can add your PayPal Business Debit Mastercard to Android Pay. Now it's easy to sample the great 1% cash back on eligible purchases when making contactless payments with your Android smartphone. PayPal integration with Android Pay goes live in May. Using PayPal with Android Pay and the debit card both pull funds directly from your PayPal balance. However, the debit card gets you the aforementioned 1% cash back on eligible purchases, gives you Mastercard's protection from fraudulent charges, and uses your bank account as a backup source of funds.

Booking Flights with Google Pay FAQs

What is Google Pay?

Google Pay is a digital platform that allows a tap-to-pay purchase on mobile devices. This enables users to make payments with Android phones, tablets or watches. Android Pay was developed by Google and uses near-field communication (NFC). This means that card information is transmitted to the retailer, allowing it to facilitate the transfer of funds. So you don't have to use your plastic cards when paying. Two-factor authentication involved means that Android Pay needs two pieces of evidence to make a positive identification, making it a secure method of payment.

Users can add payment cards to the service by taking a photo of the card, or by entering the card information manually.
