An update will be released for the application by Google while bringing features and a new layout for the unified payments service.

In a blog post, the firm stated that the release of the Google Pay application has initiated already. The website is also updated by Google with the most up-to-date features. Also, 4 YouTube videos have been released to elucidate how to function with the new application, comprising how to shell out in stores, how your data remains protected, and how to include & authenticate a card. Until now, the functionality of the application stays mostly unaltered.
The interface of the Google Pay app has 2 tabs—Cards and Home. The Google Pay app, according to the pictures on the Google Play store, displays recent payment activity, stores available close by and offers, and a card-style interface that consists of a credit, debit, and other cards of the user.
Google, with the new branding, is actually seeking to rationalize processes, much like Samsung and Apple are trying with their respective Samsung Pay and Apple Pay platforms. The search giant seems to have big goals with the new application, as it has asserted that service will come to all Google products, comprising Assistant and Chrome.
Resembling Android Pay, the users will be enabled to utilize payment data hoarded in the app on a broad array of websites and apps when using the Chrome browser or an Android smartphone.

Nevertheless, it might only be a provisional feature prior to the complete version of the application is rolled out. Taking into consideration the release, the populace in the United Kingdom and the United States will be able to make use of the application for receiving and sending money within the subsequent few months.
