The Google app has a screenshot editing feature in beta

As you'd expect, this new update keeps all of Android Pay's best features, including a security feature which uses a different card number from your actual card when shopping in stores. We're now 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.

At the same time, Google is encouraging app developers to work with Google's processor partners to build the Google Pay app into business apps or websites.

At the moment, the app doesn't have Google Wallet's function which allows you to send and receive money, but this is apparently coming to the United Kingdom and USA in just a few months.

In addition, Google is also launching a redesign of the Google Wallet app for sending and requesting money - and it's now called Google Pay Send.

The Google app now allows users to use voice commands such as "what is my ETA" or "when is the next turn" while using Offline Maps for navigating from one place to another. The split between these services should end soon when this feature becomes available in Google Pay Send. New users, on the other hand, will need to head over to the Play Store to download and install G Pay on their handset. It also makes it a lot easier to access all of your loyalty cards and view recent transactions.

Google Pay follows several failed attempts by Google to launch a widespread payment platform.

Longtime Android Pay fans, fear not: the features you love aren't going away. There is also priority in the app, which will allow you to see which emails are from your friends and family first.

As Google's VP of Product Management for Payments, Pali Bhat told me, the team really wanted to make it extremely easy to get started with Google Pay and use the service to pay for goods online and in the real world - and to do so with as little friction as possible. It probably won't be long before we hear more about Google Pay, so stay tuned for that.
