Google Pay, the rebranded merging of Google Wallet and Android Pay, is going live today. With a new app rolling out and a rebranding of another… wait, I thought there was only going to be one app? Yeah… we’ll get there.
First, Google Pay is the rebranding of Android Pay and that app is going live in the Play Store today according to the company’s blog. If you have Android Pay installed on your phone, you will get an OTA update to the new app over the course of the next few days. Regardless of which one you have installed right now, you can still go and use it. This, to an extent, is a rebranding exercise at this point.
