Google Pay's big global rollout begins

Google adds screenshot-editing tools to its Android app

Late previous year, The New York Times reported that more than 1,000 popular Android apps listen for ad-tracking audio signals through device microphones - so this is indeed quite a scary thought.

Android assigns a UID (User ID) to every app that a user installs on their device, and this new feature is based on this only. This allows users to make payments in real-world stores wherever they have the option to make purchases at NFC-enabled tills, or at contactless travel ports such as London's TfL network. Through apps, users will be able to check out using their Google credentials rather than typing in their credit card info over and over again.

What has been added is a second tab in the Android app which will split your payment, loyalty and gift cards, from your recent activity, offers and balances.

Google Pay will also brand the autofill of bank details in Chrome, as well as the "Pay With Google" API for websites and other e-commerce.

Google Pay is now taking off for clients and it will supplant the Android Pay application, and will incorporate highlights from the Google wallet. If you are running and someone sends you to text the reply ("your name" is running right now) will be arranged by the app automatically, and you just need to tap the response to send it to them.

Google Reply takes the suggested responses from Gmail (pictured here) and places them into notifications. Google Pay will likewise get another element in the coming months.

In the meantime, Google Wallet is temporary getting renamed as Google Pay Send until it will slowly get incorporated into Google Pay. Thanks to a source code commit, some information on upcoming new security features for Android P may have already been revealed.

In the U.S. and the UK, Google Pay and Google Pay Send will completely merge "within the next few months", when the ability to send and request money comes to the former. We know this is going to be a service that many people will use, especially as more stores accept it. There are still some things in the pipeline, but we'll go over what you can do with the new app today.
