Original TechCrunch


Google officially launched a payment service and the Google Pay Android app with the same name. It will replace two previously operating services – smart wallet Google Wallet and mobile payment service Android Pay.

Google Pay allows you to pay right away in several situations: in physical stores, Google Chrome browser, Google Assistant voice assistant and other third-party applications.

A device with Google Pay can be used as a travel card. Initially, the function will be tested in cities like Kiev, London and Portland.

In the Russian office Google did not specify when exactly the new service will appear in Russia, but added that it will happen “very soon.”

The fact that Google is going to rename Android Pay, it became known in early January 2018. Then some Russian media decided that the company is closing its main payment service.
