Google today announced the launch of a unified payment service app for its Google Pay platform.
Post the update, whenever you capture a screenshot inside the Google app of pages such as the Feed, search results or followup links viewed through Chrome Custom Tabs, the app will bring up a panel from the bottom.
While Google has rebranded its Wallet app (which lets you to send and request money) as Google Pay Send for now, this feature will eventually be baked into Google Pay as well.
Underneath are various prompts that highlight the security features, third-party apps, and places where Google Pay is accepted. But that's just the beginning; Google has loftier plans for Pay down the road.
The new name makes a lot more sense, especially as it also integrates the old Google Wallet functionality, but apart from that, a "fresh of coat of paint", and a pretty aggressive marketing campaign, very little seems to have changed. Users who already have Android Pay installed on their devices will get the new app automatically the next time they update their apps. But in today's market, where Venmo and the gig economy are demonstrating the value of personal payments, Google realized a need to bring P-to-P back. Google Pay's mobile payments work in any store that supports NFC on the payment terminal.
The app acts as a way for users to manage and store various debit and credit cards via their smart devices. However, it may only be a temporary feature before the full version of the app rolls out. In the Home tab, you get your main payment card above a scrollable list of tiles that list nearby stores with NFC payments and recent transactions.
What's interesting is that you don't have to save the screenshot first so as to edit, you just press capture and carry on with the edits right within the app.
