How to Send and Receive Money through Google Pay
When Android Pay officially became Google Pay, we were surprised that the ability to send and receive money was still contained in a separate app (called Google Pay Send). Now, Google officially announced that the company is combining the Pay and Pay Send apps. So, looking at the bright side, you’ll be able to send and request money through Google Pay, without being annoyed by having to install too many apps that eventually clutter your phone for no good.
With Google Pay, you can check out in hundreds of apps without having to enter your payment information. You can use the app to store airline boarding passes, order takeout, or get tickets to that just-announced show with the simple press of a button, get gift cards and more.
You can also pay your debts to your friends this way, even the ones without Google Pay. If they have an email address or phone number, you can pay them with Google Pay – whether you’re going halfsies on that pizza or on that delicious sushi. No bank transfers are required, but you have just an instant way to pay using the debit cards already in your wallet. And when you choose to pay in stores, Google Pay will never share your actual card number, so your information always stays secure. Besides all these, you can check out faster with the device that’s already in your hand, with no need to dig for your wallet.
Google has also made it easier than ever before to manage all your payment information through either the Android app and the best part is that everything syncs through your Google account, so however you update your payment information, it’ll be updated on all devices. Isn’t this great?
So, what do you think of Google Pay? Well, let me know if you run into any issues so I can help get you back on track. And don’t hesitate to take the app from here if you are eager to try it out.
