Google Pay officially debuts

Google has officially released the new Google Pay app for Android, which brings all of the company's payments platforms under one umbrella with a new name to replace Android Pay.

The new app in available in the Google Play store.

"We're currently 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," Google wrote in a company blog post. "We're also working with partners online and in stores, so you'll see Google Pay on sites, in apps, and at your favorite places around the world."

The new app will sport all of Android Pay's features, with some additions. 

"If you live in the U.S. or the U.K., you'll be able to use it to send and request money within the next few months," Google wrote in the blog. "In the meantime, the Wallet app is now called Google Pay Send, and we've given it a fresh coat of paint to go with the Google Pay brand."
