Google Is Taking The Android Out Of Android Pay

But in 2017, Google's service trailed seriously behind its competitors - Samsung Pay and Apple Pay, according to Juniper Research and payments industry site PYMNTs.

Google has announced it's creating a more unified way of paying for things online and in-store. With Google Pay, the company ensures their Android users the easiest method of money sending, receiving, paying out with saved information on their Google accounts. Perhaps Tez too will be branded as Google Pay, even though it is not the same as Google Wallet or Android Pay as it uses the UPI payment system made in India.

Here's where it gets a little confusing. Does that mean it's rolling out to more websites?

The feature first appeared in May 2013 for American users, and seems to again suggest that Google is ramping up its activities in the online payments market. As like before, the new service also supports developers with a publicly available API access.

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. "We can't wait to share more". Then in 2015, Google came out with Android Pay, with support from three major U.S. carriers. "We look forward to working with Google as they grow this exciting new payment platform". Some use fingerprint authentication, some work on our phones out of the box, other need apps and passwords. After years of brainstorming - Google finally has had the genius idea of unifying both these platforms under a single brand.
