Google Pay: what you can do now

The EU may force Google to make significant changes to Android Looming fine means Google might have to stop forcing its own apps onto Android devices
Katie Ramirez | 11 July, 2018, 05:29

Android and Google are a good fit because one feeds the other - Android users provide Google with searches which provide it with revenue, and more importantly, all those precious bits of user data we keep hearing about. Google announced boarding pass support at Google I/O 2018, and the feature has been in public testing for a few months, but now it appears to be entering wider availability. The point is obviously to then use your phone as your ticket (or boarding pass), no printing required.

It's hard to argue against the convenience of technology such as Google Pay and Apple Pay.

If this method was not successful, it is believed the European Union could push for Google to make switching browsers and search engines easier for users. You only need your Google Account to check out and finalize a purchase.

The ruling would seek to prevent Google from making deals with Android smartphone manufacturers that ensures the technology giant's apps are pre-installed. You can even be reminded to use the card while you're at the store. It can be used on different devices and platforms. You can start paying your friends and other contacts with the mobile app. Google Play Send already does that but it's being combined now with Google Pay. Those in the United Kingdom will receive the same feature later. It's a simple feature but one that should make splitting a bill between multiple people much easier. Bought something for another person or for a project? Google says to expect more supported outlets soon, like Eventbrite, Singapore Airlines, and Vueling. Just head to pay.google.com, where everything is synced with your Google Account. Google is bringing the Google Pay Send app into the Google Pay app, which means users will be able to send or request money from within Google Pay directly. You can use it straight from your Android phone, Chromebook, iOS phone, laptop, or PC.
