Google rebrands all its payment solutions as

Bhat said that "bringing everything into one brand is just the first step for Google Pay" but did not share additional details about the company's direction.

Instead of having two different payment methods, Google decided it was time to combine both Android Pay and Google Wallet into one service. Google's payment solution site has already clicked over to the new branding, and we'd guess a rebrand of the Android Pay app won't be far behind.

This all-new Google Pay branding was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 event being held in Las Vegas.

RIP, Android Pay and Google Wallet. Google Pay is aimed at becoming a unified platform which can be used for Play Store transactions, payment at NFC-enabled booths and miscellaneous online transactions (to pay for stuff purchased from the Google Store).

Fandango, a unit of NBCUniversal, made the announcement on Monday. It came out with the Android Pay mobile payments service a few years later. This is Google, so don't try and understand the odd decisions they often make or you'll ruin your day.

We aren't sure what will happen to the Android Pay and Google Wallet apps, though.

Google boasted on its blog that Google Pay is supported by a handful of services today, including Airbnb and Fandango. Other businesses offering discounts for Google Pay include video equipment seller B&H and grocery delivery service Instacart.
