Google App Beta Gets Tools To Edit And Share Screenshots


Google Pay may be functionally similar to its predecessor, but the decision to combine multiple services and products into a single app is a welcome change for Android users.

After realising that it was more than slightly unnecessary for Android Pay and Google Wallet to be completely separate services, Google has started rolling out its new unified payment service, Google Pay. You can enroll in the beta through the Google Play Store.

"We're now working on bringing Google Pay to all Google products, so whether you're shopping on Chrome or with your [voice] Assistant, you'll have a consistent checkout experience using the cards saved to your Google Account", Google added in its statement. Since you're often operating the dialer with one hand, it makes sense t have buttons at the bottom where they're more easily accessed. Rather than process payments, the Google Pay API will pass the credentials to a payments processor such as Braintree or Stripe.




Apart from your regular credit and debit cards, you can also store all your gift cards, reward points, loyalty programs and offers in the Card section of the app. Meanwhile, Google Wallet has been renamed to Google Pay Send and will be integrated with the main app soon.

The new Home tab in the Google Pay app will give users all of the information that they need, such as recent purchases, nearby stores, easy access to rewards, tips, and more. Recognising this differentiation was unnecessary, Google's now replacing the apps with the single "Google Pay" brand. That's changing today, though, with the launch of Google Pay for Android. If you have been using Android Pay, all the features that you have come to expect are present in Google Pay as well. To activate the feature, you need to open the Settings panel within the search app, after which you need to go into Accounts and Settings and then simply toggle the Edit and Share screenshots switch to on. Just choose Google Pay at checkout and pay with a few quick clicks instead.

Business owners building sites themselves can work with Google partner Shopify to integrate Google Pay.
