Google Pay now has peer-to-peer payments service; becomes one-stop destination to send and ask for money
SAN FRANCISCO:
Google has integrated its peer-to-peer payments service ”
Google Pay Send” into its digital payments solution “Google Pay” to make the latter a one-stop destination to send and ask for money.

Along with this, the search engine giant has also included other features in its payments solution, including support for mobile ticketing for travel, movies and concerts, just like Apple Pay.

“Once your tickets are saved, you’ll find them with your loyalty cards, gift cards and offers on the Android app’s new ‘Passes’ tab. When it’s time for your event or flight, use your phone as your ticket-no printing required,” Gerardo Capiel, Director, Product Management and Consumer Payments, Google, wrote in a blog post on Tuesday.

“Google Pay” would be in sync with the user’s Google Account to make updating payment information about cards and accounts quicker.

“Now that you can use ‘Google Pay’ on desktop or on iOS, in stores or on transit, on your phone or with your Assistant, we’ve also made it easier to manage your payment info in the app or on the web at pay.google.com,” Capiel added.

The updated “Google Pay” is first rolling out in the US, followed by the UK.

Earlier this year, Google combined a host of its own payment platforms to create “Google Pay” including apps like Android Pay and Google Wallet, aiming at a convenient and unified payments service for users.

Google I/O 2018: How JOMO Stole The Show

Google Lens

9 May, 2018

The lens can copy any text from the real world into your phone. This is something Google has demonstrated before, but now it sounds like the feature is ready and actually coming to Google Lens. You’ll be able to point your phone’s camera at text in the real world — say, a written down Wi-Fi password — grab that text, and then paste it into a text field on your smartphone. And now it’s also going to help you buy fashionable things. Google Lens still isn’t perfect at identifying precise items of clothing, but Google thinks it can get close enough. The company is introducing a new “style match” feature that will scan something the camera is pointed at and help you buy it from internet retailers. Sounds like a dream come true for Pinterest fans. But will Amazon be among those stores?

It spots the ones you might be interested in and puts them in your briefing.” News will also deliver “a range of perspectives” to bring you a little bit outside your bubble.
