Next up, the Google Pay and Pay Send apps are joining forces to let you send or request money to friends right from the Google Pay app, if you live in the USA (this is coming soon to the UK).

Back in February, Google announced plans to consolidate Android Pay and Google Wallet. It is possible that users would be able to switch between the Google search engine and installed 3rd party searches.

Earlier this year, Android Pay was rebranded to Google Pay as part of the company's new unified payment offering that includes Google Wallet's peer-to-peer capabilities.

Now Google is putting its weight behind Google Pay. We live in an era where subscription services are common.

These new features are only now available on Android but Google plans on bringing as many features of Google Pay on Android to other platforms as possible. To use Google Play Store in addition to a basic Android package from Android Open Source Project (AOSP), OEMs have to abide by an agreement which forces Android-powered smartphones to come with pre-installed Google apps. Hopefully, a lot more services and airlines are in the pipeline.

You can use it straight from your Android phone, Chromebook, iOS phone, laptop, or PC.
