Compared with Apple Pay, which has been deeply involved in life, Google obviously has to walk a lot in mobile payment.
Google launched a new version of the payment tool, Google Pay 2.70, yesterday. It not only integrated the Google Wallet point to point payment function, but also added the support of ticket management. Now the American people and friends are more convenient to see each other when they go to the pub to drink the world cup.

The upgraded Google Pay obviously has a new division of the functionality, adding two first - level labels "Passes" and "Send", and the original "Cards" tag is also replaced by a more intuitive "Payment".
The function of point - to - point transactions between users, which is originally a Google Wallet application, is named after the integration into the Google Pay, which is named "Send", and the custom amount can be sent to the specified contact only by selecting the right - most - right label. The original Google Wallet has become an unnecessary application.

Ticket management functions add to the convenience of life. Boarding cards, movie tickets, concert tickets, coupons, gift cards, and various passes are now merged under the "Passes" label. For airfare, this separate view allows users to extract boarding passes quicker. In addition, a new page view called "activity" is added to the navigation drawer, which contains all your activity records.
At the beginning of the year, Google integrated its Android Pay and Google Wallet functions, and the new service was named Google Pay, and it was clear that Google was decided to unify the distributed services on the platform and even create a cross platform service, only to prepare Apple Pay earlier than the apple. For example, Google seems to have fallen behind at the very beginning.

But Google's determination to improve its own mobile payment service seems not to be small. After the launch of the Google Pay brand in January this year, it was soon online in its own You Tube and Chrome, while some third party programs, including Airbnb, Dice, Fandango and Instacart, were supported simultaneously.

In March, Google Pay added the support of urban traffic ticketing, which was first supported by the The Las Vegas Monorail in Las Vegas. As long as passengers bought tickets or passes from the website and saved them to Google Pay, they could pass through the non-contact reading of the doorway of a monorail train. Take the device authentication and get on the train, and the record will be automatically saved to Google Pay.

Although for the American people of Google, the use of credit cards in daily life is much more than the use of credit card consumption in the United States, but with the mobile payment integration of ticket and transportation and other living functions, only one cell phone will be needed in the future. It's going to fall in love with this feeling.
As for China, our WeChat and Alipay, in addition to the money to play games before the money, have already been unbeatable.
