Google brings its different payment platforms together under the Google Pay brand

He said the products being brought together include Android Pay (Google's mobile payments and loyalty platform) and Google Wallet (its peer-to-peer payments app).

For starters, when you make a purchase from Google, or from partner apps and stores, you'll start to see Google Pay as an option.

I know, I know, you want to ask why the hell did Google separate all of these years ago? It's a bit confusing, but Google is streamlining its payment branding today with the launch of Google Pay. No one liked 3 or 4 different payment experiences from different Google products and this should eliminate that pain. And any credit, debit, gift, or loyalty cards you added to Android Pay or Google Wallet will stay saved.

Unveiled in a blog post on Monday, Google Pay will offer all the functionalities that you have come to expect from Android Pay or Google Wallet.

Google brings its different payment platforms together under the Google Pay brand

The move enables Google to unite separate services under a brand that doesn't carry device-specific baggage. Will they merge and become Google Pay?

Users can try Google Pay now using Airbnb, B&H Photo-Video, Dice, Fandango, HungryHouse, and Instacart.

We started suspecting something was up a few days ago when readers began reaching out to say their Tap & Pay system settings were suddenly labeled "Google Pay".
