Google Pay being rolled out to replace Android Pay and Google Wallet

Android BlackBerry users who use Android Pay can expect to see some changes come to the Android Pay soon. As announced in January, Google has now begun merging Android Pay, and Google Wallet under the Google Pay branding and updates are now rolling out through the Google Play Store.

The app, which begins rolling out today, is just one part of everything we've got planned. We're currently working on bringing Google Pay to all Google products, so whether you're shopping on Chrome or with your Assistant, you'll have a consistent checkout experience using the cards saved to your Google Account. We're also working with partners online and in stores, so you'll see Google Pay on sites, in apps, and at your favorite places around the world.

When it comes to the differences, well, for the most part, it's just a new app with pretty much the same functionality aside from new branding, a new UI, and a new icon. Everything Android Pay offered is still there including all your linked cards, the ability to pay for things in supported stores. Those of you who look to use Google Pay online will notice new branding there as well with the icon being changed to a "Buy with G Pay" button.

If you've previously used the Google Wallet app, that will be rebranded to Google Pay Send, but Google notes that users in the United States and the United Kingdom will in the 'next few months' be able to use the Android Pay app to send and request money. I haven't got the update yet on any of my devices, but let me know in the comments if you even use Google Pay often.
