Get ready to say adios to the Android Pay and Google Wallet monikers, because today Google has announced a new unified brand for their payment solutions, called “Google Pay”:
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.
Google says “over the coming weeks, you’ll see Google Pay online, in store, and across Google products, as well as when you’re paying friends.” So far, Google pay is already enabled for Airbnb, Dice, Fandango, HungryHouse and Instacart, along with other apps and websites.
Pali Bhat, VP of Product Management, Payments, concludes in the company’s blog post, “Bringing everything into one brand is just the first step for Google Pay. We can’t wait to share more.”
Google Pay definitely sounds better as a way to unite the company’s payment solutions. Google Pay and Apple Pay are now set to dominate all the payments.
