Google Pay is finally here. Here's what it brings to the table

Google is Making it Easier to Edit Screenshots of its own App on Android Google adds screenshot-editing tools to its Android app

The new name makes a lot more sense, especially as it also integrates the old Google Wallet functionality, but apart from that, a "fresh of coat of paint", and a pretty aggressive marketing campaign, very little seems to have changed. It's called Google Pay and replaces Android Pay, a previous solution that let Android users buy goods with their smartphones. Once enabled, the app will surface a prompt after you take a screenshot anywhere in the Google app.

Longtime Android Pay fans, fear not: the features you love aren't going away. Wallet was meant to let you send and request money with people you know, while Android Pay provided ways to pay in stores using your phone. And just when we thought things were getting easier to keep track of. And those online payment forms that take forever to fill out?

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.

EFF won't participate in election of new president
According to ANC and Parliament, Zuma's tenure is over. "We are going to proceed tomorrow with a motion of no confidence". It was then tabled for a vote on February 22 by Speaker Mbete (a member of the ANC).


Google is also touting Google Pay as a way to pay for public transportation with a tap-and-go sequence of the smartphone on a turnstile scanner initially in the cities of Kiev, London and Portland, Oregon, with more cities added in the near future.

It's quite obvious that this latest Google app feature is still on infancy stage, indicating that there will be improvements to come in future versions. One notable change, though, is that the Google Pay home screen now shows you relevant stores around you where you can pay with Google Pay.

If you can't wait, and you want to take the feature for a spin yourself right now, you can opt in to Google's beta-testing program here. Cards is the entrypoint to your digital wallet, where you can select the payment method to use at checkout. Meanwhile, Google Wallet has been renamed to Google Pay Send and will be integrated with the main app soon. If you're a developer, you can work with our processor partners and find all the tools you need on our developer site.
