Google unveiled a brand new Google Pay app for Android and iOS users on Wednesday. Along with a new logo and design, Google Pay launched with a number of new app-like features in India. The redesigned app was launched in the United States.
Speaking on the app, Caesar Sengupta, General Manager and VP, Google said: “Today we are taking a major step in our quest to make money simple, safe and useful. Starting in the US, we are launching a Google app. Pay redesigned on Android and iOS. The new app is designed around your relationships with people and businesses. It helps you save money and gives you information about your spending. It is built with multiple layers of security to keep your money and information private and secure. And in 2021, it will give you the option to apply for a new type of digital bank account with reputable financial institutions. “
Although Indian users have received the new Google Pay logo, there are some of the features that are yet to arrive in India. For example, the redesigned Google Pay allows users to order food from the app, but that feature is only available in the US and not India. However, users in India can link their accounts with other apps to make payments.
The brand new Google Play has also made it easier for a group of friends to split an account. Then, to split the bill for food, rent or other expenses, users can create a group to split the bill and track who paid in one place. Google Pay will also help you get to grips with who owes what. Google Pay in the US will allow users to buy gas at over 30,000 gas stations and pay for parking in over 400 cities, all from within the app.
Google Pay will also help users save money and use store offers. “If you choose to link your bank account or cards to Google Pay, the app will provide periodic spending summaries and show your trends and insights over time, giving you a clearer view of your finances,” Sengupta said in the blog. .
The search giant has ensured that it will never sell user data to third parties or share transaction history with the rest of Google for ad targeting.
In addition to all the features, Google also launched Plex, its mobile-first bank account integrated into Google Pay.
